Milano Monza Motorshow: Our Tricolore-fair

Today marks the start of MIMO, also known as the Milano Monza Motorshow. With an audience and well over a hundred vehicles on display between the northern Italian metropolis and the home of the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Three old acquaintances are also there.

Organizing an automobile exhibition is no walk in the park, even less so in the current situation. Nevertheless, the organizers of the Milano Monza Motorshow are making a virtue of necessity. They are therefore are simply moving the entire exhibition outdoors from June 10-13. And the audience? They can get to know the vehicles better by taking a walk through Milan. Of course, there will also be driving, but only on the nearby Formula 1 race track in Monza. We, on the other hand, discovered three familiar faces that we have also driven ourselves - or had on the cover of our ramp.

Bugatti Bolide

Considering the pure performance data - an incredible 1850 HP at 1240 kilos! - the Bugatti Bolide is by no means a saint. And yet the super sports car was enthroned at MIMO on the forecourt of Milan Cathedral, of all places. On the other hand, making a grand entrance has somehow always been in its blood, as a glance at ramp #52 proves. You remember: Here, the Bugatti bolide graced the cover.)

Lamorghini Huracan Evo Spyder

It's still stationary in Milan. But we have already driven it: the Lamborghini Huracan Evo Spyder. For rampstyle #22, our cult author Kurt Molzer unabashedly drove the open-air thunderbolt into the red limit markers. And learned a few things about himself and his past. For example, that his passion for the Lamborghini brand remains unbroken. And that he basically owes this passion to his budgie Seppi. But more about that soon. In rampstyle #22.

Honda e

Milan or Madrid? Wherever, as long as it's the Honda e! Because with this agile electric vehicle, it doesn't matter which city you're driving in. The clearly designed small car feels particularly at home in urban areas. Still, the white dwarf is also convincing in other respects, thanks to its lively drive and an interior that places great emphasis on infotainment and connectivity. Up to four people can be accommodated in the e-car, which is just 3.89 meters long.
And for that special Zen moment, there's even a Japanese garden on board. Purely virtual, of course.

rampstyle #22 - I for myself

What defines us? Ultimately, it is always our personality. This wonderfully dazzling and unique self with which we encounter ourselves and the world. So far, so good - from the perspective of others. But let's rather stay with ourselves and devote this issue of the magazine to the questions: "Who do I want to be?" and "What is worth living for?"

David Hockney painted it, directors like François Ozon dedicated entire films to it - and many of photographer Tony Kelly's motifs were also created at the swimming pool. But it's not only in pop culture that the artificial place to cool off is in demand - it's also on days like today. A small case study.
