A large number of high-end Continental classic car specialists, offering a wide variety of interesting historic vehicles for sale, where spread around InterClassics’ four sizeable exhibition halls, increased from just two halls for last year’s inaugural event.
Buyers looking for a tidy, if pricey, classic Ferrari 308 GTB, Mercedes-Benz SL ‘Pagoda’ or Porsche 911 were really spoilt for choice, with rich pickings to be had. The extensive dealer selection was supported by two special themed displays, which given an absence of classic car clubs, with only half-a-dozen or so in attendance, created much interest and attention.
A ‘Legends of Spa-Francorchamps’ gathered a mouth-watering selection of pre-war and post-war Grand Prix cars, plus saloon and endurance racers that have competed at the celebrated Belgian motor circuit since the 1920s. A Belga-sponsored 1989 Audi V8 Quattro competition saloon particularly caught our eye, as did a glorious pre-war gathering of Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, and Delahaye racers.
