French classic-car enthusiasts established the Salon Rétromobile 40 years ago. Since its premiere in 1976, the show has become one of the most important events on the international classic-car calendar and also the season’s curtain-raiser.
The organisers are expecting around 450 exhibitors and more than 100 clubs with over 500 vehicles on display. In addition to manufacturers, associations and dealers, exhibitors include restorers, art dealers and service providers covering multiple aspects of classic cars. Focal points of the event include the new vehicles from the year in which the Rétromobile was established – 1976 – among them the Mercedes-Benz W 123, which marks a milestone in the E-Class tradition.
Given the huge popularity of the show in recent years, the 2016 event is being held from 3 to 7 February 2016 in Halls 1 and 2.2 of the Exhibition Centre at Porte de Versailles, Paris.
