Default Classic car warehouse in Berlin

A couple of years ago my father visited a collection of some terrific cars on display in Berlin, and some of them were for sale too. Here are some pictures from his visit. Most cars are easily identifiable, so I won't go into too many details. Some cars that really caught my eye were the stark white Cord, Citroen DS Chapron convertible and the lime green Fiat coachbuilt by Ghia, besides of course the arresting line up of Mercedes. Enjoy!

The second set of pictures. First time I'm seeing a Messerschmidt with this wheel configuration.

Hey Karlos, isn't this a Jensen? May be from 1974?

With a little foresight, our planners in Mumbai could have easily designated one of the now defunct mills for this purpose, what a attraction it would have been. Looks like our dream for a Vintage and Classic car museum in the city will remain unfulfilled for a long long time.


Yes that is a Jensen Interceptor

Karl,

Here is more info on the 4 wheeled Maser

FMR Tg500 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In 1957 Willie Messerschmitt moved back to the aviation industry and Fritz Fend formed the FMR Company in Regensburg, maintaining the Messerschmitt name with Willie's approval. Fend subsequently built a four-wheel version with an F&S 500cc two stroke twin.
