After a four-year absence, the classic Antwerp Expo will be back on 5, 6 and 7 April. Flanders Collection Cars, organisers of the Ghent classic car show, are bringing the famous Antwerp show back to life. With a surface area of 12,500m², Antwerp Collection Cars is the largest indoor classic car event in Flanders.

During this first edition, the organisers have focused on no fewer than three special anniversaries. The central theme, also featured on the event poster, is the 110th anniversary of Maserati. In collaboration with the Maserati Club Belgium, a line-up of 12 cars will pay tribute to the rich history of the iconic brand. One of the highlights is undoubtedly the 1937 Maserati 6CM (chassis 1548). In addition, Maserati Antwerp will complete the range with the latest generation of sports cars, including the MC 20.

Apart from Maserati, another Italian brand is also celebrating its anniversary: Abarth. In honour of its 75th anniversary, the Abarth Works museum will be presenting no fewer than eight special cars. Visitors to the show will be able to see the Fiat Abarth 030, the 750 Sestrière Zagato and the 595 SS Competizione.

It will also be exactly 60 years since the first generation of Porsche 911s went into production. Previously, this theme had been widely celebrated at the Autoworld museum. The organisers will be exhibiting a number of previously unseen cars that pay full tribute to this legendary model. 911 Motorsport will be presenting the 911 Carrera RSR 2.8 (ex Bolanos), the 911 Carrera RSR 3.0 (ex Heimrath), the 911 SC Belga (ex M. Duez) and the 911 SC RS Bastos (ex P. Snijers). While these cars can normally only be seen at historic races such as Le Mans Classic and Goodwood Revival, they will exceptionally be on show at Antwerp Expo from 5 to 7 April.

Visitors will also be able to discover a host of other exhibitors. More than 300 classic cars will be for sale. Enthusiasts will also find clubs, souvenirs, documentation, art, spare parts and much more.
