Thousands expected at the Bremen Classic Motorshow

| 19 Dec 2012

More than 600 exhibitors are expected to flock to the Bremen Classic Motorshow when it opens in Germany from 1-3 February.

One of the rarest machines will in fact be a van – the Cologne-built transit with panoramic windows – it is said be one of just 15.

Competition cars will also be present with machines such as a Ford Capri RS, a Schnitzer-BMW 2002 and a Lancia Beta Monte-Carlo Turbo that Hans Heyer took to the world championship in 1980.

Many on show will be for sale – including a 1977 Opel Manta S 1.9 Berlinetta, a 1974 VW Passat L and a 1992 Lancia Delta Integrale Evoluzione – all of which have fewer than 20,000 miles on the clock.

Clubs expected to attend include Beetle fans and their Brezelfenstervereinigung club, the Heckflossenfreunde Mercedes fans’ club, the Capri-Club and the Lanz-Bulldog tractor club.

Two halls will be devoted to an autojumble with space for 220 stalls offering everything from manuals to spare parts, body panels, ignition systems or even specific screws.

For fans of two-wheels there’s the ÖVB Arena with spare parts for motorcycles and famous racing racing ’bikes.
