Australia’s premier annual exhibition of rare, classic, collectible cars and motorcycles will celebrate its 10th event in Melbourne’s world heritage listed Royal Exhibition Building.

From 11-13 October 2019, Motorclassica will play host to the Australian International Concours d’Elegance, the premier annual awards for rare, exotic and collectible cars and motorcycles with an anticipated entry of 150 vehicles.

Outside the exhibition building, club-based displays, known as Club Sandwich, will be set up seeing a further 200 cars and motorcycles on display alongside 30 exotic modern supercars from Lorbek Luxury Cars.

Despite Motorclassica celebrating a milestone, the moment will be shared with historic automotive marques Bentley, Alvis and French innovators Citroen all celebrating their 100 years. Mini, arguably the most recognisable car in the world will be honoured for its 60 years alongside Abarth, who will also be honoured for 70 years of modifications to Fiat and Lancia models.

Apart from ogling the array of classic cars there will be live restoration theatre, featuring five separate live and concurrent demonstrations presented by Maskell’s Customs and Classics.

“Motorclassica is about every aspect of classic and collectible cars and motorcycles, from the world-quality examples competing in the Australian International Concours d’Elegance, to the enthusiast clubs outside in Club Sandwich. it’s about the automotive enthusiast lifestyle and everything that goes with it,” says event Director Paul Mathers.

Vehicles confirmed as part of the Restoration Theatre, include a Jaguar barn find that was displayed at Motorclassica 2018, which will undergo extensive work in the panel beating section, while a 1965 Mustang convertible will come to life in the assembly area.

There will also be more than 90 exhibitors who will display a range of products, services and experiences encapsulating automotive culture.

The 2019 Motorclassica will kick off with the annual Tour Classica, where a number of show participants will parade through the Melbourne CBD on the morning of Thursday 10 October, before arriving at the Royal Exhibition Building. Tickets are on sale now at
