Finally two roadsters face to face. Find the differences.

so it is not the same car in two different years - before and after restoration?

The pictures are very close in time (2000-2001). I'm not sure yet. I'm inclined to think in two different cars. Who knows more?


Both pictures were taken by Richard Spiegelman. I believe the picture of the burgundy example was taken at the Meadowbrook Concours in 1992, whereas the picture with the blue car was taken in 1997, one year after Samuel Mann won best of show with it at Pebble Beach. Mann first restored the car around 1995 after acquiring it the year before, entered it at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance but thanks to that questionable restoration, did not win. Then, he corrected the flaws and entered it again in 1996 and this time it did win. Since I haven't seen recent pictures of the burgundy example, I think we can agree that they are both the same car.

Is it the Pebble Beach winner? Picture taken in Spain.

This IS the Pebble Beach winner. The car was bought by the adoptive son of the Spanish prime minister Alejandro Lerroux, and was then sold in Madrid, remaining in france until 2007, when it was auctioned for over 3 million dollars, acquired by James Patterson.
