Crème de la crème of international oldtimer dealers
TECHNO-CLASSICA has an illustrious history as an important trading place for oldtimer, classic and prestige automobiles, racing cars and motorcycles. It’s therefore no surprise that 2023 will once again witness the presence of the crème de la crème of international dealers and leading auction houses. The unique quality brought together here is particularly impressive.

Alongside the historic vehicles, TECHNO-CLASSICA presents lots of exciting topics from the sector. Major automobile clubs and insurers are present. Automobile fandom can also discover a wide range of replacement parts and publications alongside automobilia and lifestyle items. The International Road of Automobile Artistry, Artists’ Road for short, yields lots of insights into the work of talented specialists. TECHNO-CLASSICA is also delighted to provide broad support for two non-profit, charitable initiatives, social-housing charity Lebenshilfe Gießen with its unique oldtimer donation campaign and children’s heart-disease charity Stiftung Kinderherz.

Much-coveted prizes will be there again. In the Concours d’Elegance, an expert jury will award the Best of Show. The contest for the Club Grand Prix – awarded to the most impressive club stand at TECHNO-CLASSICA – will be decided by a dedicated jury.
