Bring a Trailer’s Online Car Marketplace Joins Hearst Autos

From Car and Driver

As you may have noticed if you watch our Window Shop With Us video series, we are constantly shopping for cars. Bring A Trailer has been one of our favorite destinations for a long time, thanks to its curated site of classic, collector and enthusiast vehicles up for auction. Several Hearst Autos staffers have bought and sold cars on the platform.

Bring a Trailer’s knowledgeable community of more than 350,000 users and more than 145,000 registered bidders vets each vehicle, giving confidence to potential buyers. The name of the platform is a reference to the familiar shorthand in classified listings urging buyers to “Bring a trailer!” for non-operational projects, race cars and Concours show vehicles.

The acquisition announcement was made by Hearst Magazines President Troy Young, Hearst Autos CEO Matt Sanchez, and Bring a Trailer CoFounders Randy Nonnenberg and Gentry Underwood.

Lotus Esprit Jim Clark Edition Honors a Racing Hero

From Car and Driver

From the September 1992 issue of Car and Driver.

“Although the past may not repeat itself, it does rhyme.” -Mark Twain

If, like us, your recollection of automotive lore‑the firing order of a 1970 Boss 302, for example—exceeds your recollection of ninth-grade algebra, then the green and yellow livery of this Lotus Esprit Turbo SE should rhyme. Okay, so it’s more Ginsberg than Frost. But it should at least set to murmuring a tiny voice in your head that says, “I’ve seen this before.”

And you have. Although you may not see it again, because Lotus will build only twenty of the Esprit Jim Clark Limited Editions pictured here.

With the exception of the Lamborghini Diablo and, well, a Trabant, this rare and gaudy Lotus draws more comments than any car we have recently tested. Five teenagers in Hardee’s parking lot jump, twitch, and fidget, waiting
