The Classic & Prestige Salon at the
Essen Motor Show 2018
Pure passion for automobiles

  • The Classic & Prestige Salon: one of the four pillars of the Essen Motor Show from 1 to 9 December 2018 (Preview day: Friday, 30 November)
  • The culmination of the 2018 collector’s automobile season
  • Show theme: Super sports cars
  • More than 250 exquisite classic cars, sports and racing cars on offer from internationally renowned dealers at Germany's oldest sales salon

For the first time the 37th Classic & Prestige Salon occupies two of the largest halls at the Essen Motor Show. This will bring together all topics relating to classic vehicles on more than 17,000 square metres.

The conversion of Messe Essen into one of Germany’s most technically advanced exhibition centres makes it possible: In addition to the prestigious Hall 1, the 37th Classic & Prestige Salon will, for the first time, also occupy the entire Hall 2, thereby confirming the high significance of the classic show at the PS Festival in Essen at the end of the season – and enabling a relaunch of the attractive classic show: All 120 exhibitors, who are dedicated to the topic of classic cars and collector cars, are now concentrated in a coherent classic salon. Here, those interested in classic cars will find the quintessence of the international range from the areas of classic cars, young classics, historic motor sports as well as classic and prestige automobiles.

For the 37th time, S.I.H.A. is hosting the Classic & Prestige Salon as part of the Essen Motor Show. Since then, Germany’s oldest sales salon has developed into an exhibition of the classic car scene and an attractive classic car trading centre at the highest level. More than 250 classic cars, classic collectors’ and prestige automobiles and young classic cars will be presented to the expected 350,000 visitors. In addition, lovers of classic automobiles will find everything that belongs to their hobby: accessories, services, tools, literature, model cars, art, automobilia and club presentations. In order to give the renowned international classic dealers exhibiting at the Classic & Prestige Salon an additional incentive to present only the best of their range in Essen, a Concours d’Elégance is traditionally held again this year. A jury of internationally renowned classic car experts will select the most beautiful, best restored and most elegant classic vehicle from the dealer range as “Best of Show”.

One of the main attractions of the Classic & Prestige Salon will again be the special display of S.I.H.A.. In Hall 1, a large presentation of exclusive super sports cars from the last five decades is a fascinating event. This makes the Classic & Prestige Salon at Europe's largest annual motor show the end of the season and more than ever an absolute must for established connoisseurs as well as for young motorists.
