It actually reminds me, and I'm not quite sure why, of the original Toyota RAV4. Maybe that's more in the intent than the looks, though the basic relatively small size and chunky, square nature of it helps that impression a bit too.

Wow!  That's some collection.  Three beautiful Ferraris from the era when their styling was at it's clean and simple best - and that Monteverdi.... :inlove:

I can see that RAV styling, taken to the Nth degree!

Saw an older RAV4 today with new paint and silver painted wheels.

I've always sort of sneered at them but it stood out, in a good way.

I also wasn't a fan but yeah, they were popular, unique vehicles at the time and Toyota got the market just right with them.

For me, the prize Ferrari was this: 1956 500TR chassis #0640MDTR with body by Scaglietti. There is something very special about the 4-cylinder Ferraris and this one was an absolute smasher. Sorry it's all a bit 'red', which is why I didn't post it with the last lot.

It was raced by Franco Cortese until 1958 and then went to Brazil, remaining there until recovered in the 1970s and sold by Antique Automobiles Ltd of Peterborough in March 1979. Now fully restored, its last recorded sale was in April 2004 when it was hammered by Bonhams at £210,500 (!). I can't imagine what it would sell for now, but it will have certainly gained a digit or two.
