Prototype Car Museum
About The Prototype Car Museum
On two storeys of a century-old factory, now classed as a historic monument, the automobile collection PROTOTYP is presenting some 40 classic sports cars and automobiles of an extreme rarity, with a special emphasis on Porsche designs. Visitors can travel in time, returning to the years when cars were still thought up, made and driven in a pioneering spirit. You can hear stories about legendary racing drivers and their cars, and see the original vehicles.
The central focus is on famous names from the racing world, along with the high points and tragedies of their careers. Industrial illustrations and examples of advertising art are also shown. Racing placards, like those of Porsche, are among the most sought-after trophies for collectors today, and many of them can be seen here in their original form.
The racing photographs of Horst H. Baumann brought new aesthetic standards to the sport. His studies of racing cars are now housed in galleries all over the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and some also feature in the PROTOTYP exhibition. Rainer W. Schlegelmilch is acknowledged as one of the best car racing photographers in the world. A special exhibition is dedicated to his work.
The museum offers a wide range of attractions to visitors, combining information and interaction, relaxation and pleasure - whether in the exhibition itself or in the catering area, which includes a restaurant, bar and lounge or in the various event suites which can be used for private or corporate events. *Image is not necessarily one of the museum.
