French Riviera Classic
Over 150 exhibitors and 15,000 visitors are expected at the Allianz Riviera for this new edition of the French Riviera Classic tradeshow devoted to collector vehicles. Featuring ultramodern infrastructures, the tradeshow exhibits will cover 25,000-m² area, including 10,000 m² covered, and 30,000 m² in free car parks.
The theme for this year is “The Automobile and Cinema on the French Riviera”, featuring famous vehicles that have appeared in mythical movies shot on the French Riviera, like James Bond’s Aston Martin in “Goldeneye”, or Grace Kelly’s Sunbeam in Alfred Hitchcock’s “To Catch a Thief”. All of Ferrari’s supercars will be there, including Michael Schumacher’s F1, world champion 2000, as well as a unique collection of Moto Guzzi motorcycles and race boats. There will be a spotlight on the 60-year anniversary of the Citroën DS, on fire engines and on the Prince of Monaco’s private collection.
New this year are the Friday late-night opening and a major auction for vehicles and Automobilia, held on the Saturday afternoon by the well-known firm of Mr Stanislas Machoïr. Meanwhile, the forecourt will host an exchange mart attracting all bargain hunters looking for that rare piece, and feature a host of side events for young and old alike. Lastly, while you are there it will be possible to visit the brand new National Sports Museum using the paired ticket.
