    This is a fairly prestigious event where the best cars are inside the castle where the public are not normally allowed. I have to say that I've never seen such well manicured grass ;) I took the Leica M240 and 50mm 1.5 Sonnar and used the A7RII 35mm Voigtlander 1.2 II to a lesser degree. I love both these cameras, each has it's place but here are a few with the A7RII.

    I've probably got a few more still to process :)

    Cool! What's the first car? Lancia???
    I've got a set of those custom made 3pc Image wheels (not the same design though) and those cost lots of £££ :D

    Very nice shots, thanks for sharing them with us.

    (I'd guess the first car is a Ferrari, but it's just a guess.)

    It's red.... so it's a Ferrari.... right? Actually I believe it really is a Ferrari. Someone had a modern one further down in the public area, bonnet up and engine on..... it drew quite a crowd but tbh the noise it made was terrifying, ending with almighty pops like fireworks! When you go to so many vintage car shows as I do, the likes of the Ferrari, Aston Martin et al become rather passe and the real interest is in the more elegant models of yesteryear, the elderly Mercedes and Jags :) We live quite close to Maranello Concessionaires so Ferrari had always seemed a rather normal brand compared to others. There was also a Pagani Zonda there though. I've seen one driving around in Ascot :)

    I was actually basing my guess on the tail lights and intake ducts on the rear quarter panels more than anything. Very classic Maranello designs/shapes to them.
    The newer cars don't have as much 'style' as the old models and I think it's because the wind has determined their shape more than an eye for elegance has.
    I always enjoy seeing fine old automobiles.
