Australia’s premier classic and collectable cars and motorcycles will again be displayed at Melbourne’s Royal Exhibition Building over October 21–23, 2016. Motorclassica has cemented itself as the premier event of its type and this year will feature over 550 vehicles in and around the historic halls of Australia’s original parliament house.
The event will kick off on the Thursday evening with the opening night party, at which Mercedes-benz will launch its newest model. This goes handin-hand with Motorclassica celebrating 130 years of Mercedes-benz in 2016, looking back on the technology, design, and innovation of the brand, with a curated display of more than 15 exceptionally rare and collectable vehicles.
BMW will also celebrate a milestone at Motorclassica this year, reaching its centenary in 2016. To mark the occasion, joining the concours line-up will be a range of rare BMWS.
It’s not too late for interested Kiwi collectors to send in their application for a chance to take on the Aussies on their home ground in the Australian International Concours d’elegance, but, if you’re interested, you’ll need to contact event director Paul Mathers at email@example.com as soon as possible.
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’elegance honours.
The event also includes an annual auction, presented by Theodore Bruce Auctions, which has already consigned a number of very special hand-picked collector cars and motorcycles, including a one-owner 1935 Lagonda M45 Rapide — once the car of choice for world land speed record holder Sir Malcolm Campbell.
