  • 1967 JAGUAR BERTONE PIRANA COUPE

Envision this: You're the editor of Motor Trend. And, naturally, you have lots of friends in automotive journalism. You see them at industry events, major auto shows, and press launches of important new vehicles, typically at exotic locations here in the U.S. and overseas. Now imagine inviting those friends to a bar after the first day of the New York auto show in April with these words: "Let's design a dream car." You'll build a driveable version in less than six months, in time to be unveiled on a turntable in Los Angeles in November. 
Sound improbable? Of course. But, believe it or not, this scenario transpired 45 years ago. Instead of New York, it was in London, England. The publication was The Daily Telegraph Magazine, and the editor was John Anstey. The car was a collaboration among auto journalists, Anstey, Jaguar, and the design house of Bertone, and was known as the 1967 Jaguar Bertone Pirana Coupe. This is that car's improbable story. 
The Daily Telegraph Magazine was a newcomer in the competitive U.K. weekend magazine scene. The Daily Telegraph newspaper already had a reputation for doing things in a big way. In its coverage of the funeral of Sir Winston Churchill in 1965, it scooped its competitors in the predigital era by delivering complete color magazine coverage just a day after Churchill's burial. To do so, Anstey had film flown to West Germany, where millions of copies could be printed -- because it promised the best quality -- and had the finished product flown back to the U.K. just in time to be inserted into Sunday's edition, a week ahead of his national competitors. 
Sold by The Daily Telegraph for $16,000 to recoup some of its investment, the Pirana's history from 1968 to 2010 is sketchy.
