Iveco Strator è l’autoarticolato europeo dall’aspetto “esotico”. Il cofano allungato ricorda infatti un tipico camion americano.

LANCIA JOLLY (FURGONCINO)

The Lancia Jolly was a light commercial vehicle produced by the Italian vehicle manufacturer Lancia between 1959 and 1963. In four years, 3011 units were produced.

The low-loading Jolly, based on the Appia passenger car, was available with van or pick-up bodywork. An updated version with a bigger engine, called the Super Jolly, replaced it.

 

La Lancia Appia è una autovettura prodotta dalla Lancia dal 1953 al 1963: le derivate cosiddette “Commerciali” (Furgoncino, Autolettiga e Camioncino) vennero prodotte dal 1954 al 1959.

Da sempre all’avanguardia anche nel settore dei veicoli commerciali o industriali, la casa torinese, alla ripresa dell’attività nell’immediato dopoguerra (1945) prende a produrre un interessante furgoncino derivato dalla Ardea, cui fa seguito qualche tempo dopo la versione camioncino (e l’autolettiga). Nel 1953, quando esce l’Appia, il furgoncino Ardea continua la sua vita sino a fine anno, poi, al Salone dell’automobile di Torino dell’aprile 1954, vedono la luce l’Appia furgoncino e la autolettiga mentre si preannuncia (appare già nelle pubblicità) il camioncino, che sarà posto in vendita l’anno successivo.

Tecnicamente questi veicoli si distinguono dalle berlina per un irrobustimento generale, il depotenziamento del motore, la adozione del cambio a 5 rapporti e di pneumatici maggiorati.

Technical characteristic

The Jolly was powered by a four-cylinder, 1,090 cc engine producing 36.5 hp. The maximum speed was 98 km/h (60.9 mph).

It was 4,595 mm (180.9 in) long, 1,815 mm (71.5 in) wide, with a height of 1,902 mm (74.9 in). It weighed 1,500 kg (3,300 lb).

Maserati Royale

Maserati Royale: The ultimate in exclusivity
by Piero Evangelisti

“Royale” is an adjective that in the automotive field evokes great GTs of the past and to use it today it is essential that the cars for which it is intended are true masterpieces. Throughout its history, Maserati has always created unique models and exclusive series. Among these, the 1986 Royale version of the III generation Quattroporte stands out, a restyling available in exclusive blue and green colors, with revisited interiors, soft leather seats and extensive use of briar for the dashboard and door panels.

The Quattroporte Royale was equipped with a powerful 4.9-liter V8 engine with an output of 300 hp and only 51 exquisite pieces were produced. Today the House of the Trident pays tribute to its historical heritage with the launch of a special series of the same name, available on all models with V6 engines in the current range: a total of only 100 Maserati Quattroporte, Levante and Ghibli Royale will be produced with engines ranging from the 3.0 liter V6 diesel with 250 and 275 hp, to the 3 liter V6 petrol with 350 and 430 hp

Maserati Royale: Il massimo dell’esclusività

di Piero Evangelisti

“Royale” è un aggettivo che in campo automobilistico evoca grandi Gt del passato e per usarlo oggi è indispensabile che le auto alle quali viene destinato siano dei veri capolavori. Nel corso della propria storia Maserati ha sempre creato modelli unici e serie esclusive. Tra queste, spicca la versione Royale del 1986 della Quattroporte III generazione, un restyling disponibile in esclusivi colori blu e verde, con interni rivisitati, sedili in morbida pelle e ampio utilizzo di radica per la plancia e i pannelli porta.

La Quattroporte Royale era equipaggiata di un potente motore V8 da 4.9 litri con una potenza di 300 cv e ne furono prodotte soltanto 51 pregiatissimi pezzi. Oggi la Casa del Tridente rende omaggio al proprio patrimonio storico con il lancio di una serie speciale che porta lo stesso nome, disponibile su tutti i modelli con motori V6 presenti nella gamma attuale: complessivamente  soltanto 100 Maserati Quattroporte, Levante e Ghibli Royale saranno prodotte con motori che vanno dal V6 diesel 3.0 litri da 250 e 275 cv, al benzina V6 3 litri da 350 e 430 cv.

The drawbridge

Meaning

Defensive reinforcement of more or less articulated fortified structures consisting of a tipping platform across the moat that frequently goes beyond the door it closes, supported with chains and “bolts”, equipped with suspended beams that allow it to be raised from the inside the fortress by means of a game of minimal differences between weight and counterweight (usually a large stone or caissons full of stones), and defended, in turn, by the walls built above the entrance.

Origins and historical evolution

The drawbridge, which spread in a particular way starting from the 12th century, was born from the need to make up for both the congenital weakness of the access doors to the fortified complexes of a certain importance (vulnerability linked to the difficulty of opening breaches in the walls) and the uncertainty of maneuvering of the winch shutters. However, it is not difficult to find castles of lesser importance enriched with doors and bridges with multiple defenses represented, for example, by a drawbridge, a vertical sliding gate and a double door with steering wheel, all spaced and operated in succession and according to various modality.

Construction features

The rapid and wide spread of the drawbridge allows to reach almost standardized technologies and almost constant shapes and sizes in a short time. In most cases it is, in fact, from 3 to 3.5 meters wide and a little more than 5 meters high, operated by two “bolzoni” in the general case of a driveway or by a single “bolt” and an iron “fork” in the case of small open pedestrian “pusterle”, usually built next to the former. The function of the “bolzone” is to act as a counterweight, whereby, rising and placing itself in a vertical slot specially prepared above the fulcrum, in the wall thickness above the door, it makes it possible and quick to open the bridge.

Less frequent types of drawbridge than the “counterweight” bridge are the “steelyard” bridge, ie self-balancing as it is half inside and half outside the door, and the so-called “sagging” bridge, because, in case of opening, made to slide below the threshold of the door, into the moat and against the curtain wall; in the latter case, the doorway is closed by barricading only the doors or the shutter.

In most cases, the drawbridge serves to cross the moat built around the defensive complex, but since it is often unable, by virtue of its dimensions alone, to offer sufficient length to reach the opposite bank with a single span, usually rests the free ends on an intermediate crossbar, parallel to the door and called “battiponte”, which allows you to reach the bank with one or more fixed bridge spans (brick or wood) which, at the time of the enemy attack, can be easily disassemble or even destroy with shots practiced by the bertesche above the castle entrance.
