I have found this photo online (see citation), showing a Triumph Spitfire MkIII (1300ccm), as far as I can tell, completely stock, small 3.5 steel wheels, bumper, windscreen and a normal ride height. The rear axle on massiv negative camber in the typical "tuck in". Only the origin of the photo, the bumper on the door and the driver's helmet let you believe, that this car, in this spec was actually taking part in a race.

Some of you have maybe recognized her already - it is Catherine Hepburn. 1933, the very beginning of her career, she was starring in the movie Christopher Strong - apparently about a young independent woman (driving as part of her role a very extraordinary car). As I saw a few minutes of the movie, I wasn't sure what marque the car was. All proportions are wrong to be a Bughatti, no boattail and it seemed fairly large. But it turned out to be one - the only one bodied in the US.

As seen in the news today, the saudi King Salman visits Jordan and gets picked up by a early 60s Mercedes. Why...? Is this still an official state car in Jordan?
