Biarritz Auto Retro

Hidden on an old avenue in Biarritz France we stumbled across this Retro Auto Shop filled with timeless machines. The owners were kind enough to let us shoot some of these well maintained gems.

- Rubber & Iron



The R8 Gordini was Renault's rebuttal to Datsun's 510 and BMW's 2002. You can still see a lot of these 3 competitors in many Vintage Rallie races across the world.

 
This spotless little 1960's Lancia Coupé has been a heavy competitor in numerous Vintage Car Rallies all over Western Europe.

 

Hidden in the back was a 1940's Renault Juva 4. These were Europe's leading 4x4 utility vehicles for many years to come.

If you're a die hard fan of BBC's Top Gear, then I'm sure you've seen Jeremy Clarkson driving around in a BMW Isetta 300. This however is the Isetta's older brother, the 600. 4 wheels instead of 3, much larger motor and even a back seat. Although not very roomy it is quite practical, but I don't suggest taking your lady to make-out point with it...


Another jaw dropper was this 1948 Buick Sedanette Coupe shining in all of it's rouge beauty. This thing is massive compared the vehicles in the shop and even on the road.
