New exhibition since July 9, 2023
To celebrate its 15th anniversary, the Hamburg automotive museum PROTOTYP is expanding its permanent exhibition. Since July 9, 2023, the museum now showcases a selection of high-quality Italian racing and sports cars from brands such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati and Lancia.
While the museum is primarily recognized for its collection of rare Porsche models, it has adopted the name PROTOTYP to signify its commitment to constant reinvention. The new exhibition, titled „The Italian Job,“ symbolizes the museum‘s foray into Italian automotive excellence.
Five carefully chosen Italian classics are displayed, showcasing their awe-inspiring design and powerful technology in a dedicated exhibition space. This convergence brings together the German engineering concept of „Personen. Kraft. Wagen.“ with the Italian notion of „Bella Macchina.“
The following exhibits are making the start:
1951 Ferrari 212 Export (V12, 2562 cc, 165 HP, 210 km/h, 975 kg)
This early Ferrari is one of only eight cars of this type built as a coupé by the Turin-based body manufacturer Vignale.
1954 Maserati A6GCS/53 (In-line 6, 1985.6 cc, 170 HP, 235 km/h, 740 kg)
The Maserati A6GCS is one of the most successful two-seater sports cars in automotive history. This car was successfully used in races by a Sicilian baron.
1955 Lancia Aurelia B24 Spider (V6, 2451 cc, 118 HP, 185 km/h, 1115 kg)
The Lancia Aurelia was one of the most advanced cars of its time. The Spider was the climax of this series and its windshield is reminiscent of the legendary Riva motorboats.
1967 Lamborghini Miura P400 (V12, 3929 cc, 350 HP, 274 km/h, 1180 kg)
The Miura was and is a style icon, the fastest road sports car of its time and simply uncompromising. A milestone in automotive history!
1968 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 (V12, 3286 cc, 300 HP, 268 km/h, 1300 kg)
The top model of Ferrari at that time was and is one of the most ambitioned Ferrari production cars, driven by movie stars such as Steve McQueen and Alain Delon.
We look forward to your visit!
