For the 29th Edition from the Techno Classica at Essen “The Golden Fifties” with Formula 1 cars which competed at the Monaco Grand Prix and the History of the Electric Vehicles were the main themes. The firt EV was invented in the US by Thomas Davenport. It was a small train which ran for the first time April 29th 1951. But back tot he cars, the Maserati 250F Formula 1 car from the great Juan Manuel Fangio appeared for the first time at an international exhibition since 25 years. Except for that Volvo and Citroën celebrated their 90th anniversaries. But with our focus on racing there were some interesting objects. We spotted the first ever Porsche 550 Spyder which had been equipped with an aerodynamic device by Michael May who was miles ahead in his time. Another beauties were the Ferrari 512 S which was being driven by Jacky Ickx and the late John Surtees at the Monza 1000 KMS in 1970. This car also played an important role in Steve McQueen’s famous Le Mans movie. A little bit hidden but quite interesting was Ivan Capelli’s original F1 March 871 Cosworth DFZ 3.5L which has been in the hands by the Italian Classic Company for 16 months now. But there was also a prototype from Coloni that had been designed for an aborted Alfa DTM project. Later it became the fundament for the Renault Megane Cup in 2005. This year there were 1250 exhibitors, 2500 cars were being offered for sale and 220 marque clubs were being present at on of Europe’s greatest classic Motor Shows.
