Thanks Terry, interesting.  If that had been there in 2015 when I was there, I didn't know about it, or I would have a SD card or two of photos for sure.

 

I don't know if it would upstage Mulhouse, but it certainly gives it a run for its money.

 

Pity about the over-processed images though ...

So is the original P34 that was used for the presentation and testing only. Many other (modern) F1 cars, especially Sauber.

Currently they have a very nice Le Mans exhibition with many famous and infamous cars (956/919/ GT-One/Gebhardt). On until August 2024, highly recommended.

The Museum also has many military vehicles, bikes, trains, etc.

There is also a Concord and a Concordski which you can go in, well worth the climb!

Never been to Sinsheim, but it is definitely on my to-do list.

 

The 1994/1995 Benetton and No. 2 Prost McLaren looking strange - at least.

I don't think that's a McLaren at all. Certainly not one Alain would have driven!

Looking at the suspension that McLaren may be based on a mid80s F3000 March or Lola (if it´s based on a real race car at all)

The Benetton may have it´s origins in the 1990 model.

 

Having a closer look on the exhibits a few years ago while researching on another subject, I found out that most of the F1 on display are show cars never used on the race track.

The Fondmetal (in Dallara Scuderia Italia livery) might be one of the original race used chassis.

Similarly, the car in the '96 Ferrari livery is actually a repainted Arrows A18.

Hmmm... I was going to ask the ID of the yellow-with-red #24 behind the green Porsche, but maybe I should ask what it is supposed to be as well.
