The 2016 edition of Inter Classics in Maastricht is already approaching fast. From 14 to 17 January, the Limburg capital is dominated by beautiful classics and beautiful exhibitions at the MECC. Veilinghuis Coys will also be present.
The British auction house - one of Europe's most renowned auction houses in the field of classic cars - is coming to InterClassics Maastricht for the 3 time. On Saturday 16 January, no less than 60 auction items go under the hammer under the name 'Grandes Marques'. The list pleases unprecedentedly beautiful classics from before and after World War II. Examples are a Ford Woody from 1937, a Lancia Aprilia Cabriolet by Langenthal from 1948, a Maserati 125 Turismo Lusso, a Vespa scooter from 1965 and a rare BMW 328 Roadster from 1936. The classics - including also various Porsches and Mercedes - are offered in various price categories. The auction pieces can already be viewed during the fair from Thursday 14 January. You can find the complete parcel list here. Taking a look is definitely worth it.
BMW 328 Roadster
We have already mentioned the rare BMW 328 Roadster. This BMW is seen as one of the most important sports cars of all time. The car was developed as a prestige project for the Third Reich and had to be ready before the Berlin Olympics in 1936. Ultimately, the BMW 328 wins more than 140 racing and rally victories, including the Mille Miglia from 1940. What is special is that not only Coys is introducing this copy from 1936 as an auction item. During the fair there is also a BMW 100 Roadster from 328 on the theme square '1938 year BMW'.
From pavilion to Trajectum
The exclusive auction takes place on Saturday 16 January om 14: 00 hour. Place of action: the Trajectum, the general area of the convention center. With the addition of the Trajectum as an exhibition and auction room for Coys, the exhibition area is growing from 33.000 m² in 2015 to 35.000 m² in 2016. By moving to the Trajectum, the traditional Autojumble will return to Paviljoen Zuid, which means that parts and automobilia will be more strongly represented.
