One of the most eye-catching stands was organised by the Renault Oldie Frenn Luxembourg, which marked the 50th anniversary of the Renault 16. A 1935 201 was put on show alongside a three-owner 202 Cabriolet from '39 and a 203 Decouvrable from '53.

Also drawing a crowd throughout the weekend was a handsome 1955 Facel Vega. The restored 4.1-litre DeSoto V8-engined coupé sat alongside a number of hugely popular fire engines and an ex-Detroit 1941 Chevrolet Class 300.

A 1947 Simca Deho was one of the rarest cars on display. The duraluminium-bodied single-seater was constructed in France to race in Formula Two and weighs just 370kg. It had been brought to Luxembourg to promote the Solitude Revival in Stuttgart, which will take place in July.

A stunning 1937 Lancia Aprilia Sport Zagato recreation was put on show. Owner Vanni Curridor has submitted an entry request for the Mille Miglia, and plans to use his 1956 Lancia Appia Furgoncino van as the support vehicle.
