It brings great pleasure to see an icon of time long gone be faithfully brought back to life and we have recently been told of such an occurrence.

Remember these pictures from the 50 and 60s, of the tired heroes, covered in blood, grease and sweat mingled in an undistinguishable goo. Remember these pictures of winners proudly raising their trophies over their heads, wearing their azure-blue pants (coated in a Borax solution that made them slightly fire-retardant, but so itchy…). Remember these pictures of J. M. Fangio, looking at his beautiful Maserati, puzzled before the Cuban national hymn and grand prix race, or Paul Frere cheering yet another victory. All these great moments of history have been gathered under one roof at the new Suixtil web site.

But more than just pictures, the group of enthusiast behind Suixtil has decided to invest heavily to bring the brand back to its former glory and offer all the fans of vintage and classic motor cars the opportunity to partake in the experience.

A group of European fanatics based in Hong Kong (does it get more exotic?) has decided to take up the challenge and revive the brand to the fullest extent of its former glory as the official sponsor of the Argentine racing team.  Their "Heritage Line" gives enthusiasts the chance to associate themselves with these legendary drivers and their friends, wearing the authentic racing outfits of the time (sans Borax), whether on or off the tracks, yet never be out of style.

Says company representative Vincent Metais: "Here is finally a brand that we can live with throughout the days and that delivers the same assurances of comfort and care as we have been looking for, without pretentions but with a lot of style. A Visit to Suixtil.com will be an exhilarating race against yourself down memory lane that will let you cross the finishing line well pleased with the journey."
