1934 Tipo 8C 2300 Corto, Touring Alpha Romeo
I have no idea what all of that means. It was on a plaque.
This baby is a 1995 McLaren F1 with a carbon fiber hull. It has a top speed of 240 mph
and goes from zero to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds.
Mercedes-Benz W196 (1955 - 1956)
This gorgeous car has a magnesium alloy body. Unfortunately, an MB W196 was in an accident at Le Mans and ignited. The pit crew mechanics poured water on the fire, intensifying the fire.
82 spectators died, the worst accident in racing history, leading Mercedes to end
its participation in racing for three decades.
These are all amazing...would look wonderful on display at our Coventry Motor Museum. Fantastic shots you have shared over the last few days, Jack. Does this the museum also have a section on cycles?
I ADORE the top one, so thirties. Would need an outfit to match, of course.
Oh yes, beauties indeed Jack, especially the first four.. real works of art. J'adore your first image.
These are gorgeous!
I think that McClaren has your name on it, Jack. These are all beautiful cars
Shiny and better than new! Incidentally, I am now in the 5th day of a miserable bout of Verdigo so my posting, visiting, and commenting is proving difficult, but I will eventually be back in full swing again. Have a good week-end!
Oh, WOW! Such awesome cars and history, Jack!! Love your captures for the day -- as always!! Hope your weekend is off to a great start! Enjoy!!
They are beautiful- I think my dad would really enjoy this museum. He's fascinated by classic cars.
Beautiful cars, excellent images!
They are all beautiful, Jack! But the lines on that first one are fabulous!
I love that first shot and the second one sold that car for me.
One does not need to know anything about cars to see the beauty and elegance in these autos.
There are indeed beautiful cars. They were at the very top of desirability, performance, and cost when they were new, and are now so rare as to be housed in museums. All of them were very low production models. The Alpha Romeo Tipo 8C appeared in the original Godfather movie as the victim of a bomb. I'm sure they didn't actually blow one up.
Better quality than when I shot Elvis' cars at Graceland.
Love that Gold color.
That first one looks s-o-o-o Art Deco! Very cool!
