Aston Martin is celebrating its 100th anniversary with the CC100 – but it’s not the first to do this…
The Swiss-born textile magnates, brothers Hans and Fritz Schlumpf, built up one of the world's greatest car collections in utter secrecy. Only when their factory in Mulhouse, France, was overrun by striking employees in 1977 was their vast collection uncovered. The whole thing was subsequently nationalised and put on public display. The current Schlumpf museum houses over 520 cars of breathtaking historical significance, including no less than 123 Bugattis, 14 Rolls-Royces, 13 Ferraris, 11 Gordinis and seven Hispano-Suizas.
