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.

Cavallino Classic 26 ... Concours at the Breakers ... Ferrari 212 Export Vignale Best of Show

The 26th edition of the Cavallino Classic today moved from the Palm Beach International Raceway into the Breakers for the annual Concours d´Elegance, the highlight of the Ferrari meeting in Florida. Well before sunrise the first Ferrari were lined up in the driveway of the luxurious hotel at the Beach. Just as in previous years this edition featured some rare examples of the history of the marque with the prancing horse although the jubilee edition in 2016 set the bar very high for all the coming years but even without the numerous Best of Show winners of the past this year’s line-up was again no disappointment.

The Retro Classics 2017 ... even bigger than the older and internationally better known Techno Classica

Just three weeks after the sensational Retromobile Show in Paris the German car show scene starts into the 2017 season with the Retro Classics in Stuttgart. Although Stuttgart is a beautiful city and famous for their local car manufacturers Porsche and Mercedes-Benz certainly the “Neckar-metropolis” is far less glamorous than the “City of Love” and so is the trade show in the modern trade centre near the airport. Ideally located and state-of-the-art built a few years ago the venue is the perfect location for an international show easy to reach both by car and plane.

Tour Auto 2017 ... Leg 3 Haute-Goulaine - Nantes

More of half of this year’s Tour Auto is driven. Today was the third day leading from Nantes to Limoges with another 2 timed special stages in the countryside and the visit to the race track in Val de Vienne. For the last time the competition class 3 lead the way early in the morning when just after a glorious sunrise the cars left the castle yard at Chateau de Goulaine where they spent the night out of the sight of the public as this was one of the few occasions where the paddock were not accessible for spectators.

Tour Auto 2017 ... Leg 4 Limoges - Toulouse

For the fourth and the second to last day the cars were released early in the morning for a very long day on the French country roads with another late afternoon track visit at the Albi circuit.

As mentioned yesterday the fourth day traditionally is the day when the race groups are switching their order as the regularity is leading the convoy for the last two days rather than running at the back.

Tour Auto 2017 ... Leg 5 Toulouse - Biarritz

Over 2500 km on five days including 11 special stages and an additional 4 races at the circuits of Le Mans, Val de Vienne, Albi and Pau made this one of the longest and most demanding editions for the cars and crews in recent history of the TAO. 242 teams started on Tuesday morning from the Grand Palais in Paris for the cruelling chase through the French country side and not few got a few scars on their alloy, steel or GFK body.

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.
