Motorclassica 2015

New Zealand Classic Car - - Nationwide News -

Aus­trala­sia’s pre­mier au­to­mo­tive ex­trav­a­ganza for rare and ex­otic, his­toric, vin­tage, vet­eran, clas­sic and col­lectable cars and mo­tor­cy­cles is set for an ex­cit­ing sixth year. Motorclassica, to be staged once again at Mel­bourne’s mag­nif­i­cent 19th-cen­tury Royal Ex­hi­bi­tion Build­ing over the week­end of Oc­to­ber 23-25, 2015, will be a cel­e­bra­tion of en­thu­si­asm for all things au­to­mo­tive and the au­to­mo­tive life­style.

More than 100 ex­quis­ite cars and 50 mo­tor­cy­cles will be dis­played through­out the his­toric halls of Australia’s orig­i­nal par­lia­ment house, with a fur­ther 200 or more on show each day in the Club Sand­wich car-club dis­plays along­side the main hall.

For the 2015 show, Motorclassica will cel­e­brate 50 years of Su­per­cars — be­gin­ning with a spe­cial dis­play cel­e­brat­ing the leg­endary Lam­borgh­ini Miura – while an­other dis­play will mark five decades of Fer­rari’s beau­ti­ful Dino.

For two-wheeled en­thu­si­asts, Motorclassica high­lights 70 years of the iconic Ital­ian motorcycling marque, MV Agusta.

As Aus­trala­sia’s only in­ter­na­tion­ally-rec­og­nized col­lec­tor car and mo­tor­cy­cle event, Motorclassica draws an ever-in­creas­ing au­di­ence from both sides of the Tas­man and fur­ther afield.

En­try is by ap­pli­ca­tion only, en­sur­ing a dis­play of Aus­trala­sia’s most sig­nif­i­cant and valu­able cars and mo­tor­cy­cles, and th­ese will com­pete again this year for pres­ti­gious Aus­tralian In­ter­na­tional Con­cours d’élé­gance honours.

There’s also an an­nual auc­tion of 30 hand-picked col­lec­tor cars and mo­tor­cy­cles, plus 100 items of au­to­mo­tive me­mora­bilia go­ing un­der the auc­tion­eer’s ham­mer. And that’s not for­get­ting the an­nual Tour Clas­sica, an event in it­self, in which se­lect en­trants pa­rade through the streets of Mel­bourne to the Ex­hi­bi­tion Build­ing to of­fi­cially kick off the 2015 event.
