Nice one Lars, the colours of the car and its surrounding blend beautifully.

Many thanks Luc :)

Nice find with that great looking Zastava - I read on Wikipedia that it has a nickname "Fićo" (from a newspaper comic) and is very popular among young people - cheap and also retro/nostalgia.

Ford Consul. The "375" badge suggests 1961. It had a four-cylinder engine that produced 59 bhp. With a tailwind it might reach 80 mph.

Nikon Z6, 85mm f/1.8S.

The Ford Consul (Mk II pictured) and its six cylinder siblings in the same body, the Zephyr and the Zodiac were popular in Australia and especially so in New Zealand in the 1950s and 1960s.

The MK II Consul had an engine based on cutting down the 6 cylinder 2,553 cc Zephyr engine to 4 cylinders.

The Next Bond Car

A red Fiat 500, followed by a white Fiat 600

The 600 is the older one (end of fifties), while the 500 is a more recent model (mid 60's), even sporting its original bull bar

Hi Paco, there's a subtle look to the white clothing in your second image.
Almost a hint of tones you sometimes see in IR images.

Was that just the way you chose to do your PP, or is there other magic & Mediterranean sun at work?

They are IR images, look at the filenames, it's a little hidden because there's a malicious space in there: ... Mariai nfrarojo ...  (infrarojo is IR in spanish)

Phew, my eyesight isn't going then!

With my complete lack of Spanish, consider this completely hidden  :D

  Massimo is right on all accounts. It is an infrared image and, I just realized, It has a typo on the name. It should read "puerto de Santa María_infrarrojo" meaning place and kind of image.

  It was the d5300 with 830nm filter by the way.

IR or not, it is a nice presentation of the Citroen.

More Jaguars

Two Jaguars with Swiss licence plates. I particularly like the convertible one.

Nice addition to the Jaguars on this page Massimo
The convertible is something special - not sure I've ever seen one.

But the one at the front was sometimes used in black livery by the British police when i was a kid
(and no, I never got to ride in one either!!  :P )

And although the jag at 0:50 in this video is being driven by a criminal, you get the general impression
