If I had to define with a noun this week's episode I would say PASSION. And Perpetual Passion is the right place to express it, but above all to be able to share it. This week's guest is Eugenio Amos fondatore di Automobili Amos e padre della nuova Lancia Delta Futurista. Pilota, collezionista, designer e imprenditore è un uomo che vive di Passioni, proprio come noi!
During the episode we talked about his eclectic collection of cars ranging from Ferrari 275 engine Gtb with original black plate from Modena, to Mercedes-Benz CLK GTRl – one in just 25 – up to its creature, the Futurist Delta Spear.
” I chose delta because it's the car that made me fall in love with cars. I was 7 years old: my father had a beautiful one in broom yellow color. I don't know why, but it made me feel special. Those memories are made of smells, of soft touch of Alcantara, of confused sounds. I'm looking for this in a car. I offer this. I offer what I like. Even if it is an end in itself or seemingly useless“.
Of course, we couldn't help but talk about our common passion for watches. Even in this world Eugenio has been confirmed to be endowed with taste and flair. He showed us some of the timepieces in his collection to which he is most attached and others that have conquered him for charm and craftsmanship.
The chat with Eugenio was just a nice chat between friends, among enthusiasts. These kinds of meetings, of moments, take me back to the because I created Perpetual Passion: to share, to create a community united by the Passion. In our case for watchmaking, but it is true that among us hand maniacs, many are equally so for engines!
Now enjoy PerpetualRADIO Episode 6, this time also available on YouTube as a video interview, with the hope that these emotions can reach you too!
