The prestigious international dealer from the classic world will be in attendance with its biggest ever exhibition at Padua fair.

Over 50 highly prestigious vehicles will be on show: these include a 1953 FIAT OttoVù, the second ever built after the 6 pre-series (Frame 106.000008), and the oldest "Fiat Carrozzerie Speciali" model. Made on commission for Emanuele Filiberto Nasi, the son of Tina Agnelli and nephew of Giovanni Agnelli, this model took part in the final edition of the Mille Miglia in 1957.

The Ferrari 275 GTB is another unmissable vintage car exhibited by the Reggio Emilia-based atelier. GTB was designed by Pininfarina; it showcases taut and slim lines, and its features recall the world of competitions, such as the careened headlights, the lateral "gills", the truncated tail and its spoiler. For the first time ever, light alloy wheels were introduced to a Maranello GT model.

Lastly, for sports lovers, a 1974 model which knows a thing or two about winning on the racetrack: a Lancia Stratos HF. Nuccio Bertone's brainchild and the product of Cesare Florio's ingenuity, the Stratos combines a revolutionary design with an epic heart thanks to Ferrari motors. The abilities of extraordinary men such as Mike Parkes, Gianpaolo Dallara, Nicola Materazzi and Sandro Munari then led Stratos to success in rallies and sports car racing for many years. Few other sports cars that have made such an indelible mark on the history of car racing. The Ruote da Sogno model will be showcased in perfectly renovated conditions, with a sparkly light green livery.
