I am sure C&SC's fans and readers can bring many examples of expensive Classic Recreations, glorious Sanctions Two, Genuine Replicas, rebirth GTOs, Authentic Renumbered Chassis, famous fakes (FF), and the kind of pathetic homage which could have been either tremendous failures or successes.

New technologies and some imagination will produce new categories to the classic world.
What about CC (classic clones)?

Please have a look to the cover of the book La aventura Pegaso (The Pegaso Adventure), made in 2004, published in 2006 and then to the Techno Classica Essen brilliant poster for 2012, made in 2011

Not sure what you're getting at there Mario? Appears to be the same artist but is a brand new painting due to the change of angle?

Did you write that book by the way? :)

"Not sure what you're getting at there Mario?"
- mattiej, have you read C&SC (December)? It seems Maseratis 250F are available at £75.000. May be that's a new category in the classic world.

"Appears to be the same artist"
- It is the same artist indeed. Also it is the same car (Pegaso Z-102), the same driver (Palacio), the same time (1952), the same place (Monte Carlo) and race (G-P practising).

"but is a brand new painting due to the change of angle?"
- Oh, yes, the same Aston Martin (Parnell) is in the 2004 painting (not seeing in the image, left). As it is in the "new" painting, right.
And the little Gordini (Manzon) is not forgotten neither (but the angle changes, of course).

"Did you write that book by the way?"
- Does it really matter? I mean, it is about the painting, not about the book, isn't it?
