    Hi Pekka.

    Finland have had many good sports men. A few of the rally Champions are living in Monaco. Kimmi Raikkonen and more.

    This guy is my car and boat buddy: Pertti Läppala

    Let me know when you are planning to go to Nice!

    Happy easter to you all!

    Hi Erik

    I’m based in Austria, Salzburgland. Not exactly close to you by the sounds of it. We have some stellar roads here though..
    Something to think about.
    Would be cool
    Cheers
    Jason

    Hi Jason! Nice to «meet» you here. I really want to explore Austria more. It is sooo beautiful. Switzerland is great, but Austria is just breathtaking some places. Last summer July of 2019, I went down and up through Europe from Oslo to pick up a boat that my Lambo-collector and business partner bought in Italy. (Lamborghini powered of course!) We went through northern Italy, up to he Brennero pass and into Austria. I got the «brilliant» idea to see the Schloss Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau just over the German border. So at about 35 degrees C. I decided to go mountain climbing through the stortest route with my Chevrolet truck and over 3 tonnes of speedboat behind it up the very steep hills up from Mötz passed Bad Krecklenmoos, and down to the castles. It was a quite hard job at high temp and low speed but everything went well. It was so beautiful, I wish I could have stayed there for a day or two, but we had a bit of a hurry.

    Austria would be ideal for a drive with other car enthusiasts! Do you have any tip where to go and what to see? (Cool roads with scenery)

    Also, do you have any pictures of your car etc.?


    Erik :)

    Hi Erik,

    Austria / Salzburg, Steirmark region have some amazing roads with great scenery.
    We live 50 minutes from Salzburg in the mountains, ski country.
    My wife has a pension in Wagrain and from here I have endless options. Some highlights:
    Großglockner
    Obertauern
    Sölkpass
    Zauchensee
    Großarl
    Gröbming/Schladming
    Maria Alm /Dieten

    Hope to get the cars out soon. “Normally” I put them back on the road May 1st.
    Hibernating still..but we have great weather now.

    Would be great to organize a tour!
    Jason


    I have a 328 and 550.

    I found a picture of the großglockner, Austria’s highest mountain. Last time I was up there I had my 964 still. On the left..

    This will be a great tour this summer as we will have less traffic to deal with.

    Hey guys,
    If İstanbul is Europe I have the only 456 gta and 4 gt s. I bought the car to drive it daily so do struggle to keep it going. I am hoping the more I use the less the problems. Had an accident so now I am replacing some parts.

    I'm with Jason here. Austria, and neighbouring Bavaria, have some of the best V12 driving roads in the world. Road quality. Scenery, vertical drop, and quality of food, wine, beer and accommodation at the end of the day. Switzerland is also beautiful but so many police, I don't know how bad Austria is now on that front. Italian Alps lovely but get so busy and the road quality is more variable.

    I am imagining a drive from Alsace to Graz..

    Austria isn’t too bad for police. We are finally relaxing off now too on the lockdowns. Businesses have been opening and we are able to meet with people again.

    I finally got my 328 out of hibernation today and plan to bring the 550 home Sunday I hope! Finally saw it for the first time since January...

    I’m definitely keen on more tours. Hope the German / Austrian boarder opens up too!

    i always freak out when friends of mine send me pictures of 456 driving around in Hamburg and i don’t know or see them. Must be so cool to meet up with several 456 at once. Where are you from?

    I am Norwegian from Oslo. Have a Swedish boat company and stay in South of France, Stockholm and in Oslo depending on where I want to be. Because of full lock-down in France, I took the 550 up to Stockholm. It is a beautiful time of the year, and the streets of Stockholm are crowded by sportscars and people are out enjoying themselves. Let’s get to know each other some time. Europe has many 456/550/575 enthusiasts and we can use their potential aswell

    The 550 looks tiny compared to that Mercedes SUV behind it.

    Hi David!!

    Great looking 550 you got there. Yellow is not the typical color for the model but after seeing it a few times it really grows on me. Welcome to the Euro Club!
