Welcome to Barnato, a compendium of the little things—and the big things—that make international motoring culture what it is. (Not to overlook the medium-sized things.) Of course, what does “international motoring culture” even mean? It means to seek out new experiences by way of car, boat, plane, or anything else that’s faster than a horse and not a quadruped.

In pursuit of better things

For our part, we didn’t become part of the culture to stay in a bubble; we did it because it’s the best way to experience what lies over the horizon. Yes, by that we do mean the literal horizon, but we also mean what lies just over our own personal horizons. We have been granted the freedom to see the world and to be among the people who inhabit it, getting to know—and appreciate—both.

And of course, to do it all with a bit of style.

What’s style? It’s whatever you make it. Sometimes you can’t even define it until someone else does. But it’s an indelible stamp left by those who did it the way they wanted to. From Camille du Gast to Ed Roth, from Ben Lexcen to (the somewhat infamous) Don Aronow, from Pancho Barnes to Alan Shepard and more. Whoever it was, the common thread is that they did what they did with panache in line with purpose. It made for a richer culture, and that’s what we’re here to embrace.

Which brings us to our mission. Barnato is about pursuing better things. Getting out there, going on new adventures, exploring new corners of the world, sometimes just the pursuit itself. And even if we never quite reach those intended goals, the pursuit of them spurs us on to higher and better things.

There’s a whole world out there, and we should all be part of it.
