I saw these cars in a basement of a exotic cardealer in Italy. Can anyone tell if the 2 red racecars are Ferrari's and if so wich ones? And what are the 2 blue racecars? Bugatti or something? I also saw a nice old blue car named Lomax, anyone know something about it?

photo 1, 2 and 3 are I think a Ferrari 500 F1 (correct me if I'm wrong) and photo 5 the lomax is a dutch car based on a citroen 2cv :nuts: . Look at www.lomax.nl for more info.

Hi Welcome to the forum!

I can only give you a humble opinion, because I'm not realy sure. :-?

Pic 1 and 3 are (I think :-? ) a 500. The fourth version from 1952 looks most like it, but there are still some differenses.

Pic 2 looks very much like a 330... ...a p3 or p4, is this posible? I don't know, but it looks like one.

Pic 4 I realy don't know... :oops:

and pic 5, 6 and 7 are already named...

Greets,
Marc

Nice, welcome to the forum!

I can't really add much to naming the ones that have already been answered about. That's as much as I would have been able to answered. Really can't tell completely clearly though.

What kind of camera are you using? Many of your pictures are a tad blurry. That's how my photography was when I began photographing cars. I advise trying to use 2 hands if you can to keep the camera steady or maybe speed up the shutter speed/exposure.

I don't think it is a Ferrari at all. I have to say that I'm not into the Ferrari-sortscars, but it doesn't look like pics I've seen before. The blue one is indeed a Dutch car based on the Citroen 2CV. Very cool cars.

Rosso, these pics were made with a nokia phone (most of them by a friend of mine) so that's why they're blurry. I'm sorry for this.

Some of the pics are also made at night and some through a window.

you could be right, I really don't know. The pictures are not very clear...

You are correct. Now I see it too...It's a P4 I think. Picture 4 I don't know either.... :-?

i doubt that it will be a real 330, where are those pics taken?
perhaps an Dino

I was there during a schooltrip to Italy. The first time we were there it was 23:00 so it was closed :( , we wanted in so a day later we came back. The dealer was located at the town Monetecatini Terme, Tuscanny, Italy and was called Auto Spinetti. There were two little showrooms one with some 'cheaper' cars (like porsche GT2, Mercedes SL500, Mercedes 190SL, 2 348's and some more cars) and one with some more expensive cars (Lambo Diablo VT, 355, Fiat Dino 2000 Spider, BMW Z8, Porsche 356 1500 Super, Daimler, Ferrari 308 GTS, MB 380SL and some others). Outside there were about 6 windows (piramid shape) in the ground and through them you could see a basement with cars in it (private collection of the owner). These were a Porsche , the three F1? cars (red and 2 blue), the 330 P4, a Citroen c75 (army vehicle) and a very old version of the carrera end maybe some other cars (we couldn't see everything)).
I've been in the first showroom, opened for everyone. We asked to the owner if he could open the second showroom for us, he shook his head, but after we looked through the windows and took pictures through the windows for about 5 minutes, he came to us and he opened the doors for me and my friends :D .
But he didn't wanted us in the basement.

Click here to see the piramid shaped windows (they are at the left of the photo)

Click here to see all the pics of the dealer

The cars looked pretty real to me

Sorry if my english isn't that good.

hey, hey! Don't be sorry! I know the quality of phone camera pictures are not exemplary. No problem though.

wow..love the photos. I especially like the glimpse of the Porsche 550 spyder in pic no.2. Or at least that's what it looks like. :)
not a 550 but a 356
looking at the side overhang it could be a Speedster
