Road Scholars European Grand Tour full film


Almost immediately after taking an unexpected First in Class award at the prestigious Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este with the Ingram Collection 1961 356B Carrera Abarth GTL chassis 1008 and becoming one of two restoration companies to have achieved the “Triple Crown” in the Concours world, we embarked on our first ever driving event with six early aluminum competition cars and covering over 700kms through some of the best road and mountain passes in the world. Three 356B Carrera Abarth GTLs, one 550 Spyder, one 550A, and one 718 RSK all took to the roads between Northern Italy, Switzerland, Austria and Germany facing a range of conditions- from traffic and impossibly narrow streets to long stretches of open highway to incredibly technical switchbacks and fast, twisting mountain passes. Bouts of rain and sleet didn’t hamper our drivers’ or team’s spirits-  in hindsight, they only added to the experience.

Both events put our team to the test- as 18-20 hour workdays were the norm and no shortage of curveballs were thrown their way, but as always the team rose to the occasion each time and succeeded in making this a milestone in our company’s history. We couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve accomplished, and we are grateful for our clients who trust us to pull off what sometimes feels like the impossible.
