Dr. Simeone discussed why It’s not always the biggest engine or the fastest car that wins the race. Certain cars, because of their maneuverability and balance in road races regularly beat the bigger models. The 1913 Mercer Raceabout, 1929 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 SS, 1934 MG K3 Magnette, and the 1954 Austin Healey 100-4 BN1 were four examples that did surprisingly well against their larger competition.
Located in Philadelphia, PA, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum is one of the world’s greatest collections of racing sports cars. Through our theme, “The Spirit of Competition”, we celebrate the history and evolution of these magnificent machines.
Assembled over 50 years by Dr. Frederick Simeone, the Museum contains over 75 historically significant cars including Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Mercedes, Jaguar, Bentley, Porsche, Aston Martin, Corvette, Ford, and more.
