Oil for blood and a V8 fetish?

From the sublime to the ridiculous, from old to new. At the Malaga Motor Museum you will be in motoring heaven.

You may find it hard to believe and have to pinch yourself, as the almost surreal moment hits you on entering petrol-head heaven, which is the Malaga Motor Museum.

You may well have known that Malaga had a motor museum, but possibly always put off going because you thought it would be a little… naff! You know, a couple of old Fiats, an early Ford and a donkey and cart, that sort of thing. Well, you couldn’t be more wrong if you had two heads!

 For car lovers, (piston- heads, with oil for blood and a V8 fetish) it is Heaven! A place you could happily die in. You cannot imagine the spine-tingling sensation as you find yourself standing between a pristine 1960s’ Aston Martin DB4 Superleggera, and a 1957 Mercedes 300sl (Gullwing); more than a million pounds worth of beautiful motoring masterpiece at hand. But it doesn’t end there; in fact, it is just the beginning!

The tour is on your own, with no time limit, and at your own pace. It starts pretty much at the beginning of motoring history with a few of the first horseless carriages (not least a ‘De Dion.’) Then it moves on through history into the 1920s and 30s where you have the Al Capone gangster-type sedans and huge elaborate sports cars, coupes and limousines of the movie stars. Names like Packard, DeSoto, Cord, Buick, Auburn, Studebaker and more. Then on to the 50s and 60s where you have a plethora of luxury sports cars from around the world: early BMW, Maserati, Ferrari, and Jaguar.

A wonderful assortment of motoring legends from history can be seen in one place. Bentley, Rolls, Mercedes, A.C., they are all there just waiting for you to ‘ogle’ over.

They even have some quirky stuff for a giggle. For example, John Lennon’s old Technicolor Roller parked next to the Bat-mobile, and along-side, wind, solar and electric prototypes of the future. Not to mention a few Hot Rods thrown in for good measure.

So, if you have an afternoon to spare, you could do a lot worse than paying a visit to the Motor Museum. It’s free parking, and entry is only €8.50. So it won’t cost you an arm and a leg, either!
