Motorclassica 2019 is on this weekend: here's what to expect

Motorclassica will celebrate its landmark 10th year as Australia’s premier automotive exhibition

Motorclassica will enter its 10th year when the doors open to the 2019 show in Melbourne this weekend.

Held at the heritage listed Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton, Motorclassica will once again play host to the rare, classic and significant cars of history.

On this weekend from the October 11-13, tickets are available from the Motorclassica website and cost $39 for an adult, with concessions for pensioners and children.  

For those yet to be acquainted, the Motorclassica exhibition includes the Australian International Concours d’Elegance, car club displays, new car displays from automotive manufacturers including Porsche, Alpine, Nissan and Mini, number plate auctions and anniversary celebrations for a number of marques.

Specifically, Citroen, Bentley, Mini, Abarth and Alvis will all celebrate anniversaries this year, with each brand hosting displays marking the occasion.

Other drawcards include test drive experiences, the Club Sandwich car display, a live restoration, a Japanese sports car display and the most expensive motorbike ever sold at auction – the 1951 Vincent Black Lightning that sold for $1.16 million in 2018.

Should you be around Melbourne on Thursday morning with nothing to do, you can also see some of the cars in action on the annual Tour Classica, which sees some of the most valuable and rarest cars and motorbikes parading through the city to the Royal Exhibition Building. Catch them by the Alexandra Gardens from 9:00AM.
