Ferrari 412 by Drivin' Ivan

A nice video by an enthusiast. Unfortunately it does not allow to copy the "insert code" so you need to click the link:

Well, on a quick 2nd attempt I managed to fix the code:

25-5-2018: Update, I just noticed now myself when clicking the video it doesn't play since it does not allow the embedded code. So you need to hit the link above to watch it.

Niki Lauda washing a Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2

This set of photo's was offered on the spring auction of Automobilia Ladenburg.

No.: 5938 - NIKI LAUDA
mixed lot with 9 pieces, large-format original B/W photos, on it Niki Lauda e.g. at rear of a Ferrari Dino 308 GT4 racing version, Lauda washing a Ferrari 365 GT4 with the license number EE60519, in front of the villa of Enzo Ferrari, dated 1975, and Lauda with Regazzoni in the snow, and with his then partner, 1 photo sitting in his racing cars in the pit-lane, format c. 30.5 x 20 cm, all in good condition
Limit: 280,00 €
And it got sold for a whopping € 650,- (excl. fee).

As can be read in the description, the washing takes place in front of the Villa of Enzo Ferrari. I'm unsure if it's Enzo's 365 GT4 2+2. If so, I would expect the license plate starting with MO. According to Wikipedia EE are temporary plates:

These plates are used for vehicles temporarily circulating in Italy, but have to be exported, "EE" stands for "Escursionisti Esteri" (Foreign Hikers or temporary plates).

Update 13-5-2018: I received some additional information:

The 365 has Italian export plates and is the German model (orange/white front reflectors, Round chrome outside mirror and probably hexagonal wheel centres rather than spinners) so I assumed it was Laudas company car.
