On the 51st Essen Motor Show, S.I.H.A. takes place for the 37th time with the Classic & Prestige Salon in the prestigious hall 1. With this sector the Essen show illustrates the high importance of the classic fair at the end of the season at the HP-festival in Essen: With more than 250, for a large part prestige and historic collector cars, about 25 of the most renowned international classic dealers, the Classic & Prestige Salon is the highlight and crowning final event of the 2018 classic car season.
For many of the expected far more than 300,000 visitors of the 51st Essen Motor Show the classics presented in hall 1 are one of the most important reasons to visit the fair. On the 8,100 square meters exhibition space, persons interested in classics find the essence of the international offerings of vintage cars, modern classics, historic motorsport and classic and prestige automobiles. Yet the classic salon is more than purely a sales show or foretaste of the next Techno-Classica Essen - the greatest classic fair in the world in the spring of the following year. Rather the Classic & Prestige Salon has developed into a competitive exhibition on the classic scene and to an attractive classic market on the highest level.
Everything about Classic Cars – from the spare parts via literature and accessories to art
With the modernization of the Messe Essen nothing is obvious to the exhibitors and visitors of the Classic & Prestige Salons – classic clubs, suppliers of classic spare parts, accessories, vintage car literature, classic model cars and car art still present their wares. Overall there are about 120 exhibitors that deal with the classic automobile and connoisseur vehicles. This year they use the halls 1.0, 6.1, 7.1 as well as 8.0 and 8.1.
To the distinguished traditions of the Classic & Prestige Salons a Concours d’Elégance again belongs this year: To give the classic dealers an additional incentive to only bring the best of the best from their stock to Essen, a jury of international renowned classic specialists elect the most beautiful, best restored and most elegant vintage car to be the “Best of Show“.
