Many feel you can tell if a race car design will be successful because it just looks “right.” Dr. Simeone looked at several designs that not only look right, they also performed exceedingly well, and discussed the men who created them. The Museum recently received, on loan, a famous Ferrari Interim Berlinetta that came in 6th in the 1959 Lemans. A very rare car indeed, styled by Pininfarina, it was presented as part of our great designers series. The other cars featured in this demo day were the Gullwing Mercedes 300 SL, on its maiden demonstration outing, as well as the 1933 Alfa Monza, Austin Healey 100-4, and the D-Type Jaguar.
