Museo Lamborghini 2016

The Museo Lamborghini is situated to the right of the main entrance of the factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese, which is a historic small town in the countryside, approximately mid way between Bologna and Modena. A bonus of its location right on the factory premises is that one will see cars being taken out on test, and maybe even spot the odd prototype. The factory is on the main SP 255, Via Modena, on the outskirts of the town, but within walking distance of the historic centre, and is still the site on which Ferruccio Lamborghini established the original factory in 1963.

Farewell John – The great Surtees, 1964 World Champion with Ferrari, has passed away

Ferrari has lost one of its greatest drivers. John Surtees has passed away in his native England at the age of 83.

Auto Italia Italian Car Day

The annual Auto Italia magazine Italian Car Day at the Brooklands Museum in Surrey was held under rather grey skies, that brightened up as the day progressed, on Saturday 29 April. The museum complex is currently undergoing a major refurbishment, with the relocation of the main hangar and other building works, so it wasn’t looking at its best with a number of areas fenced off due to this, thus not providing the most elegant of backdrops to many of the car displays.

Auto Preston Henn

Preston Henn, one of America’s most colourful Ferrari characters passed away on 30 April 2017 at the age of 86. He founded his famous T-Bird Swap Shop in Fort Lauderdale in 1963, which initially was a drive-in movie theatre, and proved to be a huge success for him, making him a fortune, but he still went there every day at the crack of dawn. He has been quoted as saying “I could be anywhere I wanna be - I wanna be right here”, such was his passion for the empire that he had created.

Concorso d´Eleganza Villa d´Este 2017 ... Alfa Romeo Giulietta SS Prototipo from the year 1957 awarded as “Best of Show”

Since the beginning of the motorization an automobile was much more than just a machine bringing its passengers from one point to another, it was always an expression of the lifestyle of the owner and a status symbol, be it because of its speed or its design. Soon after Bertha Benz undertook the first tour with the Benz Patent Motorwagen the first races were introduced to compare drivers and cars in reliability and speed and it was just a question of time when they were competing in design as well.

International Bugatti Meeting Sardinia 2017

In the roaring twenties and the flamboyant years before WWII there were a lot of marques in the top market and international racing scene that did not make it into the times of mass production after the war. Some of them disappeared into the history books, others did leave such an impression that their name was revitalized some time later so when looking at today´s Bugatti Chiron as the status symbol of the Volkswagen group one is reminded at the glorious history of the cars from Molsheim.

Goodwood Festival of Speed ... undoubtedly the home for historic motorsport

Great Britain is very well known both for traditionalism and sportsmanship and few things combine these two key virtues just as vintage motorsport. Like Silverstone became the home of British Motorsport over the last decades it is undoubtedly Goodwood for historics. With the two major events in early summer and autumn both the hill climb in front of Goodwood house as well as the races at the motor circuit attract more people than any other classic event and might be only second to the actual British GP.

Juan Manuel Fangio Multiple Grand Prix-Winning Maserati 300 S Joins Bonhams’ Carmel Auction

The 1956 Maserati 300 S Sports-Racer driven by Juan Manual Fangio to victory at the Brazilian Grand Prix will be offered at auction during the Pebble Beach/Monterey Car Week. Few mid-century sports-racers hold such appeal as the Maserati 300 S. Another legendary racer, Stirling Moss, who won both Buenos Aires and Nürburgring in a 300 S, said, “It is one of my favorite…one of the easiest, nicest, best-balanced sports-racing cars ever made.” And few, if any, racers can compare to Juan Manuel Fangio – without a doubt one of the best, if not the best, race car drivers in world history.

30th anniversary of the F40

Thirty years have passed since the official presentation of the F40, which took place on 21 July 1987 at the Civic Centre in Maranello, now home to the Ferrari Museum. Created to celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary, it was the last car to carry the founder’s “signature”. It was a definitive car, the ultimate expression of the technology thus far developed by the Prancing Horse, but at the same time it went back to Ferrari’s roots when racing cars were also road vehicles.
