This year’s edition -Retromobile 2018- celebrates two major anniversaries. First, Porsche’s 70th with a large fleet of 911s. One Speedster 3.2 Turbo among them winner of last year’s restoration competition. Not forgetting a 1988 Porsche 959 exposed by Stuttgart’s brand museum, technological showcase based on 911s to be entered in the Class B rally world championship. Then, lots of popular 4L, R5 and early A-Types (models from 1898) for Renault 120th birthday too. LeMans 24 fans will find a Group-6 gem in the name of the Alpine-Renault A442b.
This very place gathers renowned OEMs and modest restauration garages, alongside classic cars negotiators. Every corner you get a chance to see dozens of Aston Martin DB5, Jaguar E-type, Alfa Romeo, and other wanted collectible beauties.
Among noteworthy stands within Retromobile 2018, Fiskens displayed various Ferrari 250 & Lussos on a stylish plinth. In other words, Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Leonardo reunited. Finally, McLaren F1 glories from the seventies to Mika Hakkinen’s MP4-14 thanks to Richard Mille collection.
A couple of exhibition are opened to the public, including Engelbert Möll’s Abarth collection, and Jean-Pierre Wimille retrospective. This pre-war Bugatti driver (plus Alfa Romeo and Simca-Gordini as of 1946 in which he died) created three revolutionary sportscars’ prototypes, displayed here in Paris.
