From 2011 October 15th to 2012 April 8th at Muttenz (CH) a Ferrari exhibition was presented in a spectacular museum. In fact, the Panthéon Automobile is a park open for all collection car. Simply clever, the cylindical bulding is done with aramp on three stage around a skylight. Exterior skin is made with translucent plate witch give a natural light, enought to visit, but agressive for picture.
This exhibition wasn't presented as it deserve, and the bulding doesn't look what it had in. Afetr the visits of Etienne and Nicolas, I saw that the list of models exposed doesn't stay the same. So I was worried when going to Basel just two weeks before endding to not see some cars. And it was done (250 GTO, F40LM, 312P...), but all missing cars was replaced.
Before detalling more or less each car, this is a description of the museum. Ground floor shows us some pictures from Gunther Raupp, 25 years of collaboration with Ferrari for calendars. I advise you to find his book.
When looking at sky, I saw beautyful rears. The climb start without time loose to arrive at the entrance of Ferrari
Firstable, a walk to see what is here. No regret to come.
I saw that the list of cars here, isn't what is in my paper printed just before coming.
At the top, three F1 let imagine us the nose they could done in this bulding. When coming back to the start, I saw a collection of Amalgam models, 1/8 scale. About 5 000€ each one.
So, let me introduce you each car. All are not shoot in different angle for different reason: the light, the rarity of the model, and, as usual, my feeling...

Really a great exhinition as I would like to see more. Nobody with me during more than two hours of working. Just 10Frs (8€) to pay.
I hope there is no mistake in S/N or date.
