----------But back to the Otto-Vu.
But is the red w/ black roof and hood stripe also Vignale? It's interesting from the front, but I wonder what those fins and roof line look like from the rear quarter.
I agree wholeheartedly- especially the 5 or 6 "double bubble" versions.Some years ago the Blackhawk museum had 10 8V's on display.(almost 10% of the total made) My favorites are the Zagato's but Vignale made some pretty ones too, especially the convertibles. While the Supersonico is stunning design I don't think it's as elegant as the Zagato's. There are many Zagato designs I don't care for but they really got it right with the 8V.
I'm not a fan of Fly Yellow. That car was restored by Patrick Ottis and he applied several Ferrari signatures like the paint and the black wrinkle dash.I do believe I would probably sell my soul for this particular double bubble. Zagatos are just so beautiful.
At the 1954 Salone dell'Automobile in Turin the "Demon Rouge" shared the stand with the "Raggio Azzurro" a Nardi car based on Lancia B20 parts, also bodied by Vignale and designed by Michelotti. This car too has some outlandish features but comes together much better than the "Demon Rouge".The red and black is the infamous Demon Rouge- a truly bizarre concoction.
You have good taste.I'm not a fan of Fly Yellow. That car was restored by Patrick Ottis and he applied several Ferrari signatures like the paint and the black wrinkle dash.
I prefer the ex-Elio Zagato car- silver with red darts on the fenders, #084.
If I knew how to post photos I would, but, C'est La Vie.
