I think I still have my box-file of technique samples, if I have then that Brian Hatton spread will be in there! As I've said before, he seems to have made more changes in personal style than any other technical illustrator that I know of, and I have always had a fondness for coloured paper, used with a darker and lighter (white) pencil the results can be spectacular. Not that I've done much myself...

I have had David Kimbel, Chris Endres "Art of the Cutaway Car" on back order for some time and received a notice today that Amazon.co.uk was no longer able to offer this book for sale. Does anyone know any details?

Marc, those cutaways are from years collecting car magazines. Quattroruote is a great source of Betti's cutaways.
Italians love cutaways. They have great artists like the Bettis, Franco Rosso, Sergio Baratto, Giorgio Allisi, Alloisi, Sante Lusuardi, Giovanni Cavara to name a few.
Rombo, Autosprint, Routeclassique, etc have a lot of cutaways too.
The Bettis seems to be still working hard. At the Opel Media Site I could see some (13 or more 2010 Astras, Vectras, Corsa, Combo, etc) cutaways by Giulio and Bruno next to cutaways by Studio Parsons.

Very close Marc, I think your notes might refer to the drawing having been re-produced in the revised edition of F. Wilson McComb's comprehensive MG book? As far as I am aware the drawing was first printed in Motor, I don't know if this may help in identifying the hand responsible.

Lancia Beta Montecarlo Turbo Gr 5 Martini. Box art from the ESCI Crystal kit.

These kits were quite rare. There is also a rather fetching J├Ągermeister BMW M1 cutaway/transparent model in the series, which I have only seen in very low quality, as well as a Merc 190E.

Serge probably had a very limited amount of time to get the drawing done before publishing deadline,
or he had a great off-day, but heck who am I to judge ?....

I've not seen that before. Very odd brakes.

Did Ferrari use a similar rear suspension layout in the mid 70's?

Front suspension on the 312T2 yes, the rear suspension springs on the 312T4 as far back,
but rockers not so backswept

I think this deserves to be in a category of its own. :up:

So close also to being the first racing car named the 'Mourinho'.

A new one on me - good find.

This one interested me, apart from the fact my wife has just brought one.

An Audi A2 with the airbags deployed, but not a scratch on the car :)

I reckon that perhaps Mr Valigursky is being a bit coy here with his cutaway skills. But since he is only focussing upon those little wheels, we can let him off. A painterly specimen if ever I saw one!

According to my book on the subject of the V16. The then technical editor of 'Motor', Laurence Pomeroy Jr had proposed, through a series of articles published between Nov and Dec 1938, a nationally backed 'British Union' Grand Prix car, which would have a monocoque frame, all-enveloping bodywork and a supercharged 3-Litre V16 engine.

Some of the other V16 designs.

Alfa Romeo V16 1939 3-Litre.

Cadillac V16. 16-cylinder engine, 1938, 135-degree vee angle.
