Visiting Car Dealerships in Belgium
Before the event, our representative Filip Michelet went to visit classic car dealerships in Belgium. As he tours through Europe, he’ll start making his way down to Essen, Germany for the show. Take a look at some of the interesting classic cars he saw on his way there:
Tiger Super 6 and Nigel Mansell
We saw the Tiger Super 6 which was owned and made for Nigel Mansell, a world champion F1 racer. This was designed as an homage to the Williams Red 5, which is the car he won the F1 world champion title with. Signed by Nigel Mansell himself, this rare kit car was definitely cool to see. It’s one of a kind nature and working engine mean that it would be great in any collection.
This vehicle is on sale for 37,950 Euros or $42,710 through EVS Classics.
This year, hall one of the Techno Classica hosted the Mercedes-Benz Museum which featured 20 different club displays. Classic Mercedes from all throughout their history were featured. Each club focuses on a different model and have members dedicated to the preservation of the style.
Ford GT40 MkII from the 24 Hours of Le Mans
The legendary Ford GT40 MKII was designed to dominate Le Mans in the late 60s. Henry Ford wanted to beat Ferrari as payback for declining his offer to purchase them. Various of these GT40s were able to win the LeMans race 4 years in a row which is why they are some of the most famous racing sports cars ever.
Maserati 4CLT Single Seat Racing Cars
The Maserati 4CLT was one of the most popular race cars during the post WWII era. This particular Maserati is known as chassis no. 1600 and has an amazing history. Purchased by the Argentine Automobile Club in 1949, this car would eventually lead Argentina to multiple Grand Prix victories. The 4CLT 1600 disappeared for many years, but eventually resurfaced. Now, it’s been rebuilt and in driving order once again.
