Ever heard of Vanwall? No? Well, you should know about Vanwall. That's because Vanwall were the British team to win an F1 Constructor's title. It did that in 1958 with the VW5, a car which has now been recreated.

Just LOOK AT IT. That British Racing Green makes the car look awesome. If you were born in the 1950s and were an F1 fan, then this should be your dream racer.

Under the hood you will find a 2.5-litre engine which is capable of producing 270 horsepower. All the continuation cars are made using the blueprints and are ready to race.

The interior also looks niche. Classic wooden steering wheel coupled with those lovely speedometers further enhance the beauty of the car and weaken our knees.

Vanwall have a pretty illustrious history. They've had drivers like Sir Stirling Moss, Mike Hawthorn and Colin Chapman and it was Stirling Moss who sealed the Constructors’ Championship title with a victory in the Moroccan Grand Prix.

Only six of these spectacular cars will built in Lincolnshire by Hall & Hall. This car marks the beginning of a new chapter for Vanwall.

Iain Sanderson is leading bringing the British racing team back and his team have "commenced investigations to understand how the historic Vanwall brand DNA could translate into a vehicle for the 2020s."
