Highlights this year include Ferrari 250 GT TDF, Jaguar 3,8l MkII and Ligier JS2. The 250 GT TDF with
chassis No. 0629GT was recently repainted in his TDF 1957 colors. It will be driven by Silvano Toni of Toni
Auto in Maranello. Five 250 GT Berlinetta passo corto will join the TDF. Another remarkable Ferrari is Juan
Quitano’s 625 TF chassis 0304TF. It’s the last survivor of its kind.
As always, E-Type Jaguars will be tough competitors for the overall victory. One Low Drag coupe “49 XFN” is
one of the attractions of the field this year. It will fight with seven Shelby Cobra including multiple winners
Shaun Lynn and Ludovic Caron.
As usual, the cars arrived in Paris on Sunday between the afternoon and night. Scrutineering took place at
the Grand Palais in Paris on Monday, where the cars were displayed to the public before their departure on
With an ever-growing crowd inside Grand Palais, it’s becomes harder and harder for photographers, but I hope
you will enjoy these first images of the 2016 Tour Auto.
