Mo­tor­clas­sica ap­proach­ing

New Zealand Classic Car - - Nationwide News -

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 pmath­ers@etf.com.au 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.
