The BR20 is a two-seater V12 coupé developed on the GTC4Lusso platform, which in terms of its philosophy and styling approach, cleverly references the magnificent Ferrari coupés of the 1950s and 60s, without the slightest hint of nostalgia. Instead, it pulls off the challenging feat of marrying timeless elegance with muscular sportiness, effortlessly incorporating styling themes typical of some of the most iconic 12-cylinders in Ferrari history, including the 410 SA and 500 Superfast.

“Who do you think you are? Stirling Moss?” This, so the story goes, is what a policeman asked the legendary British racing driver following a particularly ‘daring’ overtaking manoeuvre on the streets of London. “Yes sir, I am” was the honest reply. There’s a nod to this legendary tale – and a number of other aspects of Moss’s life and career – in “The Last Blast”, a new short film by Mercedes-Benz Classic. A police motorcycle outrider admonishes the over-enthusiastic driver of the very Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR made famous by Moss’s win in the 1955 Mille Miglia race.

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.

The Ristorante Cavallino has officially begun a new era, hosting a lunch for Scuderia Ferrari people both past and present.

Over the last two years a lot of events were cancelled and they had to find a way to keep their sponsors and getting set up the event this year. Some of them struggled more than others but the Classic Days even had more challenges to master as they lost their original event location, the Castle Dyck near Neuss. For many years the picturesque water castle was a perfect backdrop for the German garden party with the Orangery for the concours, an alley for a recognizable round course and the gardens for the camping and pick-nick. When we went to the first Classic Days the garden were just refurbished for the Bundesgartenschau but the castle was still in a sorry state.

The Monterey Car week is back. After missing the last years car week due to the travel restrictions coming into the USA and the cancellation of the 2020 week due to the outbreak of the Covid virus we are finally back to Monterey after three years. Some things have changed since the 2019 edition and some stayed the same. One of the biggest changes is the lack of the Concours on the Avenue on Tuesday in downtown Carmel as the founder unfortunately passed away recently and it looks like nobody took over the baton. The Wednesday will also see some news as the McCall Jet Center party was sold to the automotive lifestyle brand and specialty insurance provider Hagerty who already took over the Amelia Island Concours earlier this year.
