More than 250 ex­hibitors and 500 ve­hi­cles drew 48,000 vis­i­tors to the Mon­tjuïc ex­hi­bi­tion cen­tre from 16-19 Novem­ber for the 34th Au­toretro Barcelona. Among the spe­cial dis­plays in­side the Fira de Barcelona was a trib­ute to the 24 Hours of Mon­tjuïc, with no fewer than 30 driv­ers (11 of them for­mer win­ners) on hand to re­live their ex­pe­ri­ences.

Cata­lan coach­builder Pe­dro Serra was cel­e­brated with a set of cars in­clud­ing the pro­to­type Dodge Boule­vard, a Pe­gaso Z-102 cabrio, Citroën Dyane coupé, Au­tona­cional 200F and three Seat 1400s. There were also four Seat 600s to mark the end of the model’s year-long 60th-birth­day party, along with a gath­er­ing out­side of 150 cars from Club 600.

Ad­di­tional in­ter­est this year came from in­ter­ac­tive dis­plays, in­clud­ing a se­ries of clas­sic pa­rades through the old town, and ‘live’ ex­hibits such as Va­len­tín Mo­tors’ re­assem­bly of a 1988 Porsche 911 930/66 turbo flat-six.
