Velocità exhibition

There's a thread at the Jalopy Journal featuring the Velocità exhibition in Turin, Italy. The exhibition focuses on early, mainly European race and record cars, there are some real surprises included:

Itala 11: Front wheel drive, four wheel independent suspension, super charged V-12, in 1924!

Very early unibody chassis:

Tarf-Gilera-500cc- 1954: early pod racer?

Lancia Stratos Zero Bertone:

Fiat Mefistofele: 260hp in 1923! Though admittedly it was powered by a 21.706L airship engine!
