Supercars were a key feature of this year’s Motorclassica, as the event celebrated ‘50 years of the Supercar’ with a tribute to the world’s most desirable, and expensive, sports cars.
“Supercars are hard to define, there’s no dictionary definition, but fundamentally these are the ultimate road cars … the fastest, most advanced, most desirable cars on earth. And not surprisingly, often the most expensive,” Motorclassica Event Director Paul Mathers said.
“To celebrate everything that’s special about these amazing machines, we’ve assembled a truly fabulous collection of the fastest and rarest, it’s a line-up the likes of which has never been seen in Australia before – and is unlikely to again.”
Just some of the impressive cars on display at this year’s event included a:
– 1963 Ferrari 250GT Lusso, 1981 512BB, 1985 288 GTO and a 1988 F40
– Not one but FOUR Lamborghini Miura’s, including an utra-rare 1970 SV Jota
– 1994 McLaren F1 (Now worth $10 million) and a 1993 Jaguar XJ220
– 1974 Lancia Stratos, 1980 BMW M1 and a 1987 Porsche 959
– 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing & 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4
– 1938 Bugatti Type 57C Atalante & 1955 Chrysler Ghia ST Special
Other major milestones celebrated at this year’s event included 50 years of the Ferrari Dino, 50 years of the Bugatti Club in Australia, and 50 years of the Shelby Mustang.
Reflecting the growing importance of Motorclassica BMW arranged for the 2015 BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R concept car to be brought to Australia solely for the exhibition, together with the 2015 BMW Concept M4 GTS car, which features stunning ultra-thin OLED tail lights.
Having now been held for six consecutive years Motorclassica is firmly established as Australia’s only internationally significant exhibition of rare and exotic, historic, vintage, veteran, classic and collectable cars and motorcycles.
