    Default Trip To Maranello , Modena , Turin ,stuttgart !!!

    Hi ALL ,

    I just came back from greatest trip ever . I visited Porsche in Stuttgart , new Mercedes-Benz museum , Ferrari & Zanasi in Maranello , Maserati in Modena . Panini museum , born place of Enzo , his grave . Later I went to Torino , where I had a meeting with Giugiaro in Italdesign. I also visited more automotive places in Turin but can’t say more !!! Just believe me that it was AMAZING !!!

    I was in Stuttgart for 3 days . It was great ! I arranged factory tour . Saw everything : assembly line , interior trim , production of engine . I have to tell you that I was surprised of a atmosphere around that place ! It is so different to Leipzig ! Much more “warm and friendly “ place for a automotive fans

    I visited a museum too – very small , but well equipped ! They’re building a new one now at Porscheplatz ! It will be stunning !

    Stuttgart is just full of Porsches !!!! Great place for Porsche freaks – just like me !!!
    I saw many other things linked with Porsche brand, but I was not allowed to post pix or tell anything !

    I also went to Weissach , where research department and test truck located – no photos allowed !

    Next day I went to a brand new Mercedes-Benz museum !
    Speechless , amazing and VERY WELL equipped !!! I saw there my favorite ones like : Renntransporter , MB SSK , and 300 SLR Uhlenhaut – only two ever made !

    Everyone who is interested in automotive world should definitely see it !!!

    On Sunday I went to Maranello !!! What a lovely place – so Italian ( it was my second visit ) .
    I also had a factory tour there . After six I had a private visit in Zanasi workshop – wow ! Saw this mysterious black FXX’s but can’t say anything !!! I was also riding in a pearl white 575 superamerica posted on Fchat very often !

    Next day I went to Pagani …. Which is only 15 km up to Maranello . I met there Horacio Pagani ( met him first time in Geneva) . Factory is amazing and……very small what makes it even more interesting !

    While being in Modena I had an appointment in Maserati …. I was really impressed about the factory . Clean , tidy , looks more German to me rather than Italian !!!

    There I was suggested to go to Panini museum . Small private collection full of Maseratis and few other beauties like 300 SL and BMW 507 – purely awesome

    On Wednesday I was already in Turin …nice place to visit As someone once told me “everyone who want to built a cars comes to Turin “ – TRUE ! My friend “guide” showed me most important places of this city ! The best things are mountains around Turin. Looks very pretty at evening when the sky is clean ! I started from Bertone !!! It’s located in a very special place !!! If not my guide I would never know it’s Bertone centro stile ! Next to their center , there is a gravel mine . Very often official shots of prototypes are taking there !!! I saw inside a collection of many Bertone prototypes ! AWESOME !!! I found there my favorite Iso Griffo - love this car ! Also was there Lancia Stratos Zero Prototype ! Amazing how design has changed !

    Later I had a meeting with Fabrizio Giugiaro in Italdesign – it was great , he showed me museum , told me interesting things about cars , saw my portfolio !!!!

    Also visited Pininfarina. It is cool but located in quite average area ! Saw there Batista Pinin Farina’s private car – Lancia Florida II - really great !!!

    Stola surprised me very much – so Italian and noisy – cool.

    The Turin was my last place to visit . I’ve been there for a two and a half day !


    Then I came to Poland at Baltic see , where I am at the moment !!!

    Anyway , thanks for riding and ENJOY pictures ( I did almost 700 shots :P)
