Retro Malaga classic car event a triumph

Ferraris: Thirty were on display.

THE fourth annual Retro Malaga event was a huge success, with over 22,000 classic car enthusiasts visiting the Palacio de Ferias in Malaga City.

Perhaps the most striking difference to previous years was the diversity and quality of models on display, with particularly impressive displays, with more than 50 Porsches and 30 Ferraris proving particularly popular.

The congregation of Ferraris was in honour of the 70th anniversary of the Italian manufacturer, with models on display including a 1956 250 GT Speziale, an F40, an F488, a Testarossa, a 550 Maranello, a 360 Modena and a contemporary La Ferrari.

Seat also celebrated its 60th birthday with a cracking display of family vehicles from the 1960s onwards.

Vehicles from Malaga’s Automobile Museum included a stunning 1955 Porsche Speedster, a 1937 Cord Sportsman, and a 1939 Lancia Astura.

An extensive classic motorcycle section included a special display of Ducatis built by Spanish firm Mototrans since the 1950s, including a 500 Desmo, a first series 24 hours, a 350 Vento and a 250 Strada, among others.

Outside the main hall, owners of classic cars and other vehicles were able to display their beloved machines, with over 1,000 to whet the appetite.

With record numbers of visitors, Retro Malaga has clearly become a reference point on the calendar of classic car-lovers in southern Spain and beyond.
