Since the advent of the mobile phone, wallpapers have become less popular. But we know that many of you appreciate having a nice photo of a car, not far away, when you are working, for example. So after Aymeric, it's my turn to give you some automotive wallpapers!
The link to download all the photos, it's here
Unlike my northern sidekick, I don't practice testing much. So my images will rather come from events that I have the pleasure of following to give you the best (well, I hope!).
First memory, in the fall of 2015 with a shoot of Flat 6 magazine in anticipation of their number 300. A pure coincidence and an excellent moment in the company of these 2 red monsters, from a Norman collection now dispersed.
We then move on to Le Mans Classic 2018. The strong arrival of Global Endurance Racing Legends and this Maserati MC12 Corsa prepared by Edo Competition. With Edo Karagebovic, the boss, who is waiting.
Spa Classic 2017: I decided to make the trip with the primary objective, this sublime McLaren F1 GTR “Longtail”. The car recently went on sale at dealer Tom Hartley. This is the 19R chassis, the first LT built which was used for promotion and then raced a bit in Japan from 1999 to 2005. It is registered.
Retromobile 2020: the pandemic is not there yet (well we thought it was already there). Richard Mille, as usual, is preparing a pretty magical stand for us. McLaren's privileged sponsor, he will once again delight fans of the British brand with no less than 4 F1 cars on display. So here is # 20R, top view.
The Chantilly competition, since its resurrection in 2014, is always a great moment, eagerly awaited by all enthusiasts of France (and even a little beyond). The manufacturers are arriving in force to present their latest models in good conditions, to the detriment of traditional salons. This is how we were able to enjoy a moment of fitting the now delivered to its McLaren Speedtail customers. It was also an opportunity to confirm that it was not a model but a perfectly rolling prototype, including the V8.
We go to older during this same Chantilly competition with one of the 19 copies of the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato. What could be better than the rarest of Newport Pagnell's cars?
All of this was missing from Ferrari, so I'll put 2 for the price of one. And two Enzo, please. Cherry on the cake, a P1 GTR and a 918 Spyder are hiding in this shot. Clearly, Chantilly is conducive to great encounters.
In the 1990s, there was also a Holy Trinity. Like the 90s, it is getting old, you can now often see and admire the Bugatti EB 1110, born during the brand's first resurrection in Italy during the Rétromobile editions.
The Golden Age Grand Prix in Dijon is a small Le Mans Classic. So yes, the set is much less impressive but it is not without beautiful cars. And there are much less people, enough to enjoy in a great calm the cry of the V12 in the Burgundy countryside.
By taking over the distribution of Lamborghini in Ile de France, the Schumacher group scored a nice blow for its high-end image. By inaugurating its show room at the foot of La Défense, the company has put the means: the whole range, the brand owner, the museum Centenario and this sublime Miura S which spent the evening in the washing area of the under- ground. The lighting was terrible, we tried what we could for a shot.
OK, this one has a bit garish colors but a red Aston Martin Vanquish, it's rare, it's beautiful so I took the opportunity to immortalize it during an edition of Art & Elegance.
Well, that's all for today. Enjoy your new wallpaper if you have downloaded one!
