The long-awaited appointment with Auto e Moto d’Epoca is scheduled from 21 to 24 October, with thousands of historic cars and motorbikes on display and for sale. The engines of the organizational machine are raring to go and pre-event signs, including the response of visitors, are more than positive: there are all the conditions for an unforgettable edition!

The focus of this year’s event – which will occupy the entire fairgrounds – is Motorsport passion with four unprecedented exhibitions and hundreds of exceptional models on show by dealers and private collections.


Italy that wins races” is the exhibition dedicated to the Italian brands that have earned their place in the history of racing, both cars and motorcycles. Organized in partnership with MAUTO Museo nazionale dell’Automobile and the Veloce Classic collection in London, the exhibition will introduce the public to models such as the very light (620 kg) Lancia-Ferrari D50 that won the 1956 world championship with Juan Manuel Fangio at the wheel.

Sixteen extraordinary prototypes of the Bertone Collection will be on show in the big “ASI Village” of the Italian Historic Automotoclub.

ACI Storico celebrates the golden age of Super tourism with the great drivers and cars of the 80s and 90s such as Alessandro Nannini’s 1992 Alfa GTA and Roberto Ravaglia’s 1992 BMW M3 2500. Also on show are three generations of Lancia’s Endurance world championship car and ten Guzzi motorcycles: one for each decade of the great made in Italy brand.

There will be more surprises for the vintage car market which is confirmed as the largest in Europe. Three fabulous Ferraris from GP Gipimotor and Carrozzeria Scartapatti with the 250 GT Drogo, the 308 GTB Gr.4 Elaborata Facetti and the 250 GT Pininfarina certified Ferrari Classiche. One of the legendary Stratos and the very rare FIAT OttoVù from 1953 will arrive in the largest stand ever set up in Padua by Ruote da Sogno.

There’s also curiosity and innovation for electric vehicles: Stellantis and Mercedes Benz will present the development of electric technologies and their latest electric models, the result of decades of research. Mclaren will also present the company’s first electric supercar in Padua.

Many clubs and historical registers will showcase vintage jewels such as the Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 L Mille Miglia, the first Superleggera ever, and the centuries-old Lancia Lambda: the first modern car in history.

And these are just a few of the novelties on show, a selected previews of the 2021 edition that is richer than ever.
