      We rented this demonic car (look at the number plate) and took a couple laps of the Nürburgring! was very noisy inside as there was virtually no sound insulation which had a 6 point harness strapped me into this monstruosity

      Then we went to Misha's place (Apex Nürburg) and hired a professional driver to drive us in the Nürburgring which was much more fun as this had a proper chassis and engine (and a proper driver lol)

      Sadly I was so engaged looking at the collection that this was the only photograph that I took but i swear there were at least 80 cars which weren't your typical "cheap collectors cars" there were Paganis,Sls black Series (more than 3) and dozens of 911's from all eras

      In the afternoon the cars start coming in into the Hotel's Parking to start the Cars and Coffee and i can see several interesting cars like Mercedes 6x6's and Wiesmann's here you have some photographs ive taken

      • Stuttgart might be an important automotive center but it's mostly far away from beautiful and full of traffic jams.
