The Louwman Museum has over two hundred and fifty antique and classic motor cars. It is the world’s oldest and in our minds the most beautifully displayed collection we have ever seen. The museum does not just “show” the cars, but takes one on a journey through time, telling the story of how cars changed just about every sphere of our lives, from art to fashion, music to the movies, and the stories of kings, queens, socialites and even a few Maharaja’s. Each car is beautifully displayed in a area which adds to the story told. The tour through the museum, which is easily a full day outing, ends in a beautifully reconstructed town square with quant shop fronts.
After our meeting with the Director of the museum, we are looking forward to a return visit later this year.
This 1965 Ferrari 500 Superfast Speziale, was formally owned by HRH Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. Only 37 were ever built, but this one is even more special as it has a 4.0-litre engine instead of the standard 5.0-litre engine and it was painted this beautiful green metallic colour on the Prince’s request.
This special Astin Martin needs no introduction – it is the actual car from the movie!
Here are a few more of the cars we would love to photograph using our FDL-Technique.
