LOVERS of old and classic cars are in for a treat this weekend with the Retro Auto and Moto show in Malaga.
Stars of the show will include a Ferrari 250GT Coupe Speciale – only four were made – a Citroen DS 19 Cabrio La Croisette (one of eight built) and a 1934 Lancia Dilambda.
They are just some of the many models on show at the event that has become a magnet for people who want to buy or sell anything to do with classic cars, or just see some of the beautiful vehicles for themselves. There will also be a collection of classic motorcycles from Guzzi plus a number of competition prototypes.
Organisers of the event, which is being held in the Palacio de Congresos in Malaga Friday, Saturday and Sunday, are expecting 18,000 visitors to see some of the cars.
Malaga’s Motorvehicle Museum will be taking part in the event and will have a stall at the event.
Another star attraction will be the Porsche 911 Collection with 20 examples of the German car ranging from a 911 2.0 S Soft Window, built in 1967, to a 991 Martini Edition from 2014, one of just 80 built.
As well as the displays, enthusiasts’ clubs from all over Andalucia will be attending and bringing along many more classics.
There will also be stalls offering everything a classic car enthusiast could want, from specialists in sourcing and restoring cars, to suppliers of spare parts and memorabilia.
Local firm Coast Classics, which specialises in sourcing and restoring American classics as well as European models, will be there, as will Racing Legends, another company specialising in the servicing, restoration and sale of classic and supercars.
Tickets for the show are €8 a day or €12 for all three days. People who turn up in a classic vehicle will only have to pay €4.
Doors open on Friday from 4pm to 9pm, then on Saturday from 10am to 9pm and Sunday 10pm to 8pm.
