From Nov. 23 to Nov. 25, vintage car enthusiasts from around the world gathered en masse in Milano to visit the classic event, that this year also featured a one-of-a-kind sports and racing car auction.
Now in its eighth edition, Milano AutoClassica – Salone dell’Auto Classica e Sportiva brings together some of the most iconic classic sports car manufactured between the 20’s and the 90’s of the XX Century, with a focus on those from the 60’s and 70’s; this year’s edition also featured a few important additions:
the “Milano - Racing & Sports Cars” auction, held by the Cambi Milano auction house, offering some 45 exceedingly rare and prestigious lots, mostly out of the Scuderia Giudici collection, owned by famous pilot and team manager Gianni Giudici, and including unique racing cars, such as a Maserati GranSport GT3 “Laboratorio” and a Maserati GranSport “Trofeo” that ran the 2006 24-Hours at Nürburgring with the official Maserati Team.
a stand of the famed Retro Classics Stuttgart, the world’s largest exhibition in terms of exhibitors and extension, featuring an unprecedented selection of classic German classics.
As a natural complement to many official prestige manufacturers’ stands (Bentley, BMW Club Italia, Ferrari Classiche, Lotus, McLaren, Musei Ferrari, Pagani and Porsche Classic), dozens of vintage parts suppliers catered to the restorers’ and owners’ needs to keep their “toys” running.
As a fil rouge to the vintage car bash, AutoClassica also offered a rich schedule of discussions, seminars, and new book launches hosted by the ACI Storico Meeting Area .
