    Interesting to have an article about the F90 on a magazine!
    I am not sure I will be able to get one copy though.

    I will but I haven't found the magazine in Monza, during the F1 Grand Prix last weekend. I am also searching for a book about the subject.

    Not sure because the article should be just about the F90.

    Yesterday I bought the RUOTECLASSICHE magazine. I will post the whole article with a few new pics of the F90 in a few days. I just have to find some time to scan it. ;)

    Here I am, after two and a half months, finally! I apologize for being that late but I have been very busy at work. Anyhow, here you have the whole article about Enrico Fumia and his Ferrari F90, from September's issue of RUOTECLASSICHE magazine. Unfortunately I don't have time to translate the whole article from Italian to English... :( Enjoy! ;)

    Meanwhile there is a new photo of the Bugatti EB110SS-03 published by the Facebook page The Bugatti EB110 Registry (third photo of this post). You can follow them here:
    Bugatti EB110SS-03

    Chassis number: ZA9BB02E0 PCD 39003
    Engine number: /
    Interior color: Nero Inchios
    Year: 1993
    Country of destination: Brunei Sultanate
    Last known location: Brunei Sultanate

    History:

    The SS03 was ordered on november 1993 and completed on the Aerospatiale carbon chassis N°064, in the last days of December 1993. The car was probably a standard Supersport model, the first one finished in yellow (Giallo Bugatti). The interior was ordered in black leather. The SS03 was shipped to the Brunei Sultanate in early 1994. The car was licensed in Brunei, with the plate KF6780.

    2001, January : The car was spotted in exterior but the car is usually stored in the "Yellow Room".

    2018, Dec 19th : Some EB110s are most discrete than others and some of them are completely unreachable. This is the case of the SS03, stored in the Brunei sultanate. So, when a quite recent picture (2010?) of the very first yellow EB110 is avalaible, it is always an event. Since the last pictures of 2001, the car has moved and has lost its licence plate and the blade in the front spoiler. The towing hook is in place in the front grille... perhaps a little problem?

    Soon enough that collection will be up for auction. Not to get political, but his move to a certain "law" will cause havoc to his countries income.

    I just wonder at the end of the day, how many of these cars are able to be saved. So many in such disrepair, it may not make any sense to restore them.

    I’m assuming this is complete speculation on your part, so slightly unhelpful? You neither know the condition of the cars nor that certain laws will cause the country’s economy harm and that they will be up for autumn, I’m guessing?

    I don't think so.. seeing some photos that came out on instagram from the account @Bruneicarcollection (if You don't know, go and follow it), we see that some cars (see the photo with the black F1GT), especially the coachbuilt, have been moved to a garage with a dark floor .. I suppose, someone close to the RF are treating them.. maybe not in the best condition.. but treated

    I think a majority of the Sultan's "one offs" are hideous.

    Hi Marko

    Thanks for the updates. Do you have any more photos of the F40s/50s? Especially that dark blue one and apparently there's a black LM that was supplied by John Collins and then converted to RHD by Pininfarina.

    Does your source know what happened to that red XJ220 test vehicle with the Prodrive gearbox? Interested to find out whether Pininfarina actually used that car or whether it was kept in the UK.

    Personally, I'm not keen on Pininfarina's take on the XJ220, but the work they did on the 456 is stunning! I particularly like the Venice Estate. It appears to be a bit of a "marmite" car amongst Ferrari fans but I think it looks so well proportioned and beautiful from every angle.

    Please keep this thread going with more pics & info and it would be great if your source could share some stories of their time in Brunei. Fascinating stuff!

    Maxi
