Auto revival

Atalanta Motors is making a comebackThe most dedicated petrolhead could be forgiven for finding themselves unfamiliar with Atalanta Motors, but the British car manufacturer that sank without trace in 1939 after just two years of production is making a comeback. Businessman and classic car enthusiast Martyn Corfield bought the rights to the Atalanta name and will launch a limited run of brand new cars in March this year. ‘The story of Atalanta Motors needs to be told,’ says Corfield. ‘It was a company that was ahead of its time, but stopped dead by the outbreak of war.’ The design will remain faithful to the elegant Thirties originals but, thankfully, there has been a full under-the-hood overhaul. Prices from £80,000; atalantamotors.com
