1930 Cadillac V-16

Last week after picking up a new vehicle in Melbourne for a client in Tasmania and waiting to drive onto the Spirit of Tasmania, a 1930 Cadillac was waiting as well and ready to go to her new home in Tasmania.

After a chat with the new owner, a car collector in Tasmania without any V-16 vehicles in his collection until now, I learned the following of the V-16 Cadillac history in about 15 minutes:before boarding:

The Cadillac V-16 was Cadillac's top-of-the-line model from its January 1930 launch until 1940. The V16 power plant was a first in the United States.

Only 4076 were constructed in its 11-year run, with the majority built before the Great Depression. The start of World War II reduced the sales, resulting in its demise.

PAGANI ZONDA - Hearing, Seeing and now Believing

Pagani is an Italian sports car manufacturer and the Pagani Zonda, a mid-engine sports car with a V12 Mercedes AMG power plant, debuted at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show. By 2018, a total of 140 cars had been built. Both 2-door coupé and roadster variants have been produced along with a third new variant being the Barchetta. Construction is mainly of carbon fibre and production ended with the model Zonda Zun a few months ago.

You could have seen the Pagani in computer games and play consoles. Our client Marc W was lucky enough to take it a level higher. He was invited recently to a a private function in Switzerland where he could see, touch and hear the Pagani Zonda S. He talks a different car enthusiast language since that day he saw with his own eyes, heard it with his own ears and has now more difficulties falling asleep at night.
