    Sbarro Challenge. Concrete column

    Franco Sbarro definitely has a sense of humor. He must have designed the Sbarro Challenge during a howling fit of laughter. And if it wasn't at that time, the creative Swiss would at least get one when someone actually bought this frenzied creation. Catwalk That even became the giggles, because he sold Read more

    GM Futurliner – An Alien Bus

    It looked like a street version of the Jumbo-Jet in Art Deco style. Only that Boeing did not exist yet, so unique and progressive was this GM Futurliner. Almost alien. That was certainly true of his turning circle, but that was not so important. Its function is, it was a rolling showcase for technical developments and Read more

    Lamborghini LM002. Hufter with a good heart

    In any case, a big heart: in the front of the Lamborghini LM002 the same twelve-cylinder as that of the legendary Countach roared. Even such a humble type.

    At the end of the sixties, the builders of the Mini Cooper and the Cooper S could look back on a successful period. The peppery Mini Cooper S surprised friend and foe in the 20s by winning the Monte Carlo Rally three times officially and once unofficially.

    Unique. The only Audi Super 90 Karmann Cabriolet in the world

    Let's go back to the 2016 Bremen Classic Motor Show, when there was no lockdown yet and the world mainly knew Corona from the beer and the car. During the Bremen Classic Motor Show, the large crowd had the opportunity to see some special Karmann models and prototypes. The main theme was a rare collection. Not far from the Sonderschau was a car that would certainly have fitted in.
