From 21 to 24 October, Padua Exhibition Centre is hosting Auto e Moto d'Epoca, Italy’s biggest classic car and motorbike fair. The star attractions are three vehicles restored at the Officine Classiche workshop—a 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce, a 1964 Fiat-Abarth 850 TC and a 1991 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione—in addition to the legendary 1974 Fiat X1/23, the first electric city car prototype in history.
Auto e Moto d'Epoca opens its doors from 21 to 24 October at Padua Exhibition Centre.
With an exhibition floorspace spanning 115,000 m2, over 5000 classic cars and more than 1600 exhibitors, it is the most important Italian exhibition for fans of historic motoring and the biggest European marketplace for the sale of classic cars and motorcycles, original spare parts and collectible automobiles.
The Heritage arm of Stellantis is among the major exhibitors at the event.
At our stand you can admire three cars restored at the Officine Classiche workshop, which has been restoring and certifying vehicles since 2015 and is located in Turin. On display are a 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce and a 1991 Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione, both from private collections, plus a 1964 Fiat-Abarth 850 TC, exhibited as a work-in-progress to promote the workshop’s restoration activities and to show visitors some of the less visible parts that can be refurbished.
In addition, on show for the first time is the design model of the Abarth 1000 Sport Prototype, conceived in 2009 as a direct successor to the iconic 1966 Fiat Abarth 1000 SP, a favourite among privateer racers.
The exhibition even promises a futuristic flashback in the form of the Fiat X1/23, the first city car prototype with an electric powertrain, which will be displayed next to the special edition New (500) RED, developed by Fiat in conjunction with (RED). The two cars encompass 50 years of Fiat electric vehicle research and testing, in the name of innovative and sustainable urban mobility.
The stand is also showcasing a selection of products from the Heritage Parts line: OEM spare parts for classic cars made using the original moulds and materials, thanks to a collaboration between Heritage and Mopar®. In particular, bumpers and body panels for the Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione will be on display.
Last but not least, the exclusive Abarth 595 Competizione is being presented to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the TC (Turismo Competizione) designation, which was first applied to the Fiat-Abarth 850 on its debut in 1961.
