Rear view of a Ferrari 512 BB LM. After years of trying to convince Enzo to adopt the mid/rear engine layout in order to remain somewhat competitive, he finally allowed production of this design, a 180 degree flat V12 mounted on top of the transmission to become the first rear-engined  V12 powered Ferrari..........beautiful, but not a very pleasant car to own & drive.

The motor of a friend's Jaguar XKE Coupe which he bought new, and then dedicated to the track exclusively after he stopped driving it on the street.

Took it down to bare metal, lightened it, strengthened it and modified every weak area with the best modern components....you can't imagine the throttle response with the Weber carbs.

A look back to a time when manufacturers took pride in displaying beautifully crafted cloisonné badges.

Race-winning, ex-Nuvolari Alfa-Romeo 2300 8C Grand Prix car.

I also believe it displays how brilliantly M lenses perform on the SL - a 50mm Summilux Asph. FLE, mounted with with Leica adapter.
