A majestic 16th-century castle on the outskirts of Dusseldorf and prestigious, timeless vehicles from the past bring to life a magical event, for all classic car enthusiasts.
The wonderful gardens of Dyck Castle form the backdrop to the 13th edition of Classic Days, one of Germany’s biggest events dedicated to classic cars.
As in previous editions, this year’s event promises a packed schedule of not-to-be-missed attractions for classic car fans.
Designs, colours and styles will be scrutinised in the FIVA Concours d’Elegance, which is aptly nicknamed "Jewels in the Park".
The circuit inside the gardens hosts the traditional "Racing Legends" parade, which stays true to the formula that has made it famous: only 80 rigorously selected cars produced up to 1961 are permitted to enter.
This prestigious show wouldn’t be complete without FCA Heritage. The department’s stand will showcase two jewels from the Alfa Romeo Historical Museum in Arese, known as "La Macchina del Tempo" (the Time Machine): a 1975 33 TT 12 and a 1993 155 V6 Ti DTM, which will be respectively driven in the parade by two big names in the history of motorsport, Arturo Merzario and Christian Menzel.
At the FCA Heritage stand, enthusiasts can find out about the services provided by the department and get their hands on other fabled models from the past, such as the 1963 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale, the 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA , the 1969 Fiat 124 Sport Spider, the Fiat Abarth 1000 OTS and an Abarth Monomille.
These masterpieces will be exhibited alongside Alfa Romeo’s first SUV and the fastest production car in its class, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio, as well as the limited-edition Abarth 695 Rivale and the charming Fiat 124 Spider S-Design.
