This Year's Events

Motorclassica is more than a motor show or a club day out. It is Australia’s true festival of classic motoring spanning, four days and capturing the imagination of a city with a range of events and attractions.

At its heart, the Australian International Concours d’Elegance, is the southern hemisphere’s premier pageant for rare, historic and valuable cars and motorcycles. Held within the World Heritage-listed walls of the iconic Royal Exhibition Building, the concours brings together more than 150 cars and motorcycles from around Australia and beyond in a display unlike any other in the World.

Motorclassica kicks off in earnest on Thursday morning with Tour Classica, a short road rally through Melbourne’s CBD en route to the Royal Exhibition Building. This marks the public’s first opportunity to view the stable of pristine vehicles which will comprise this year’s concours. While on the weekend, Club Sandwich presented by Lorbek Luxury Cars brings unites more than 40 clubs with Melbourne’s food truck obsession in a festival hub located on Museum Plaza, adjacent to the Royal Exhibition Building.

Inside, up to 100 exhibitors show their wares and offer test drives at the Classic Motor Show, while the historic hall also hosts a selection of great motoring films on screen, special guests, pop up stores, a seminar series and Australia’s biggest and most anticipated collector car auction, presented by Mossgreen.
