Rétromobile – the unmissable event for enthusiasts of both classic and flashy supercars – is back this year from 6 to 10 February at the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre.
This year, there will be celebrations of manufacturers’ birthdays: the 100th birthdays of Bentley Motors and Citroën and the lovely Mini’s 60th birthday.
The Show’s official auction is back: Rétromobile 2019 by Artcurial Motorcar. This remarkable weekend will start on Friday 8 February with the unmissable Classic Car Auction. Top billing this year is a genuine star: the 1939 Alfa Romeo 8C Touring Berlinetta, only five of which were ever built. This jewel of the auto world has been valued at between €16 and €22 million.
This week-long celebration of the automotive world will end on a high note with the Vibration Collection – a unique collection of Formula 1 helmets and accessories that have belonged to some of the finest pilots.
Unmissable events that happen every year: the return of the Saumur Tank Museum with two legendary tanks in Hall 1. The Berliet Foundation will be presenting the unique T100 – the largest lorry in the world.
Motorcycles as well, with an exhibition all about Gnome & Rhône – the ancestor of Safran – and a special area where classic motorcycles are on sale.
Nearly 600 exhibitors will be presenting some 1000 vehicles. Last years, 105 000 visitors came to visit the Rétromobile fair.
