  3. Pininfarina Modulo. The prototype that sparked my interest in cars as a kid back in the mid-70s.

It was found on eBay 3 years ago by my client in a very sorry state and went under a complete restoration. This car does get used and is not a museum piece, it’s on his summer rota of cars.

  8. My good friend Keith did this one last summer. 9210BDFF-A234-4F8F-B45A-04D9048D70A7.jpeg F9094E16-61F3-4C29-B016-B0F64810D974.jpeg It was going to auction and fetched a princely sum of just under £17m.

  13. I went here in 2016 while touring Europe. http://www.remise.de/
    Some really rare exotics here and loads of specialist workshops where a good conversation can be had.
    There’s also a large Ducati dealership attached to it.
