FCA Heritage is once again attending Europe's biggest vintage car and motorcycle market. Italy's historic heritage is under the spotlight at the Fiera di Padova exhibition centre.
Eleven halls, 90,000 m2 of exhibition space, 1600 exhibitors and 5000 cars on display.
These are just some of the statistics that underline the cultural and economic importance of the "Auto and Moto d'Epoca" show, which has now been one of Europe's top events dedicated to the passion for classic cars for 35 editions.
At Fiera di Padova exhibition centre, visitors will be treated to atmospheric impressions of the past viewed through the lens of the present, with one eye on the future of this fantastic world. This fusion of eras makes Auto e Moto d'Epoca an event that appeals to all generations, inspiring all those who take part.
A blend of culture, lifestyle, technology and design to which FCA Heritage is also contributing, with a stand - in Hall 1 - presenting two new services launched by Alfa Romeo Classiche: Authenticity Certification and Restoration. They are represented by the Giulietta Sprint (1955) owned by singer and musician Piero Pelù, one of the first historic Alfa Romeos to receive the new certification. With the Tuscan rock star at the wheel, the car took part in the 2018 Mille Miglia as a member of the official FCA Heritage contingent.
The show also offers the opportunity to introduce an audience of sector professionals and enthusiasts to the "Reloaded by creators" project - launched last February - which discovers and restores iconic models of the past before placing them on the market: at Padua, a Fiat 124 Sport Spider (1967) and a Pininfarina Spidereuropa (1982) will be offered for sale.
The restyled FCA Heritage stand also hosts other choice pieces from the company's collection, in a tribute to the world of motorsports that displays a wonderful "veteran" - the Fiat S61 Corsa, built 110 years ago and recently restored by the FCA Heritage - alongside two more "youthful" champions: the Lancia Delta HF Integrale Gr. A "Safari" (1988) and the Alfa Romeo 75 Turbo Evoluzione IMSA (1988). They both have major sporting achievements to their names - victory in the Safari Rally and in the "Giro d'Italia Automobilistico" respectively - thirty years ago, driven by Miki Biasion.
Next to these timeless masterpieces, the stand exhibits a marvellous contemporary special series: Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio NRING, ambassador for the new "Instant Classic" project which promotes outstanding cars that represent a reliable investment for historic car enthusiasts and collectors.
