Type B/C/D Auto Union GP - but only because they were designed by Dr. Porsche. I know where the photo was taken.

I'm going to take a different approach to Wilson's answer by going with a Cisitalia 360, as it was both designed and constructed by Ferdinand Porsche.

This one should not be too taxing. Taken at the Geneva Motor Show in 2005.

No, Andreas, I have never been to the museum, but it seemed to be a reasonable guess for the very rare Cisitalia 360 to be included in a Porsche factory museum collection. Maybe someday I can see what is there with my own eyes.

Well done. This is the 2005 Iso Grifo GT Strada 4.1 (?Audi engine) which has been shown around at various shows. A number of friends race the older 5300 Corsa, which is very fast and handles well but you need asbestos legs, because the front bulkhead , which wraps round your legs becomes close to red hot.

Your turn.

John, this is not a factory museum but a temporary exhibition at the Tabakfabrik in Linz, Austria.

it's a Lucas PL headlight off a Jaguar XK 120 but very definitely on the wrong car. Looks as if a little restoration might be in order.

Not a Jaguar. the car has not been restored. If I enlarge the image the solution will be solved instantly, so I will instead offer a clue: correct nationality and era.

Ronald,

I think maybe DB2-4 rather than DB2. Must be a barn find to be in that state. Although there was a DB3 on a rally I was on two years ago, which was held together with duct tape, cable ties and locking wire. It had rust bursting out all over.

If we go into details it should be written "DB 2/4", not "DB2-4" and we could also discuss if this is model Mark I or Mark II. I think Mark I. Anyway Aston Martin is no Daimler Conquest

Wilson, I forgot to mention, that the fender looks more upright than "mother" DB2, so I agree DB 2/4 is correct MKI, I think. That DB 2 guess was a "quicky" between my work.

Ronald,

When I was mentally going through british cars, I am ashamed to say, I completely forgot about Aston Martin. I was originally thinking about things like an Austin A90 and Morris Isis but none of them had that flat front under the headlight and the chrome accent on the top of the wing. The PL headlight is of course, correct for an expensive car like the DB2/4. The Conquest also had the option of PL headlights. My great-aunt had a Daimler Conquest. You used to be able to hear the whine of the fluid flywheel on the pre-selector gearbox coming from about 2 streets away.

Well done. Here is the entire image, showing a remarkable patina. Apologies to all, since this photo was taken with Canon Model P (50mm f1.4), but I did not want to hold things up. Awaiting a post from our worthy winner.
