It's no secret that Wes Anderson likes to fixate on little segments of life, but it's pretty awesome to know that right now he's fixated on the heyday of auto racing, exemplified by his latest short film for the fashion house Prada starring Jason Shwartzman that operates as a cheeky diorama into the world of vintage racing.
Interested in the vintage whips he races around his Mille Miglia stage? Check 'em out, in order of appearance.
Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Introduced in Rome in 1929, it won every major racing event it entered that year. In all, just over 2500 were produced.
Bugatti Type 35 The most successful of Bugatti's racing models, it won over 1,000 races in its time (1925-29), averaging a whopping 14 per week at its height.
Morgan +4 Competition Originally produced between 1950 and 1969, the +4 served as a longer, more powerful version of the Morgan 4/4, and has since been reintroduced twice, in 1985 and 2008 respectively.
BMW R51 Only the second post-WWII 500cc motorcycle BMW made (after being forced to start from scratch when the production ban was lifted by the Allies), it was introduced in 1951, and produced for just four years.
Alfa Romeo 20/30 This touring rig seats four to six, and was produced in the thick of WWI from 1914 through 1922.
Maserati 4CL Having debuted in 1939, this one-seater was designed to rival the Alfa Romeo 158. It wound up as one of the frontrunner models once racing resumed after WWII, and came to inspire the more powerful tubular bodied 4CLT.
