Sramoa, you probably know already about Alberto Ascari in 1955 and Paul Hawkins in 1965.

A search for 'Monaco+harbour' turned up this old thread with its not very helpful title which may help. Ascari was # 26, and Hawkins was # 10 so your picture probably shows the car of the fictitious 'Peter Aron' car in the film Grand Prix. A trawl through the massive thread about Grand Prix may answer the question, but I suspect that was not # 11.

Pete Aron is driving a british racing green BRM P261 with number 11.
