Rétromobile - 2017

Let's start the 2017 year with one of the biggest european event dedicated to classic automobiles : Rétromobile. This year, some anniversaries were celebrated at the french retro motorshow with dedicated exhibitions such the 70 years of Ferrari or the 30 years of the famous Rally class called Group B. More, nice displays were reserved for the David Brown's Aston Martin, the 60-70's Formula 1 and a white line up of Alpine models.

Rétromobile is also the place for collectible cars dealers such as Lukas Huni, with a fantastic dual exhibition of Bugatti and Bentley models, Fisken or JD Classics, with plenty of jewels. Movendi has made the surprise with a "young timers Supercars" display

Ferrari 70th anniversary
I was quite impatient to discover the display for the 70th anniversary of Ferrari but I must admit I was a little bit disappointed. The display was quite small and almost all the cars exhibited were already known except a nice 250 GT Spyder Pininfarina spyder serie 1, new for me. A big part of the exhibition were composed with the Ferrari of the Schlumpf Mulhouse museum, such the 250 LM, the 500 TRC, the 156B and the 500 F2. The display was completed with a 166 MM, a 250 GT SWB and a 275 GTB2.

Group B Rally 30th anniversary

It seems than organizers have decided to take it easy this year and, one more time, a French museum has contributed to the whole part of the display. The Loheac museum has brought its complete Group B line up : Audi Quattro Sport, Citroen BX 4TC, 205 T16, Ford RS200, Lancia Delta S4, Lancia 037, MG Metro 6R4...

Formula 1 display

David Brown's Aston Martin Heritage
The Heritage display was a must see, with a nice and complete Aston Martin range from the DB1 to the DBS, with many particular models that was delectable for the specialist. I can cite the prototype DB208, an Aston Martin proposal for a 4 cylinders engine (in line) for other brands, using a Volvo P1800 as a mule. More, the DBS Fi was a rare version using the optional injection system introduced on the DB6 mkII. Just a few models remains today.

Highlights of the exhibition was one of the three models ever made of the special James Bond DB5, used in the 007 Goldfinger movie film, a DB1, a DB2 mkII FHC, a DB3S and a DB4 GT.

Alpine Celebration

2017 is the year of the unveiling of the new Alpine A110, that will look like closely to the Alpine Vision Concept. For the occasion, a stand with the different models produced by Alpine is displayed, all colored in white. Let's note the Alpine A610 "Albertville 92", a limited edition made only at 2 samples.

Lukas Hüni

The swiss dealer from Zurich is always one of the hot spot of the french show and 2017 was in the same direction. The thematic of the Hüni display was paired this year, with a tremendous Bugatti and Bentley model selection. The line up of T57 was just astonishing with a 57 SC Atlantic, a 57SC Atalante, a 57 Atalante, a 57 Stelvio and a 57 Aravis! The display was completed with a T18, a T35, a T43, a T54, a T55 Supersport and a T59. The Bentley display was tasty also with a R Type Continental, one of the 4 R Type Continental Drophead Park Ward, a S2 Continental, a 3L, a 4.5, a couple of 4 1/4, a 4.5 Supercharged and a 6.5!
Really great, thanks Mr Hüni!

Gregor Fiskens

Some great pieces for the Fine Automobile specialist from London : a yellow Lamborghini Countach LP400, a Bugatti T55 Supersport finished in black with some green parts, an Aston Martin DB3, a marroon Ferrari 365 GTS4 and a blood red Lister Tojeiro.

JD Classics

The London specialist showed very eclectic cars, from different ages : a prototype of the Ford GT40 mkIII, a Ferrari 250 MM Vignale, a Jaguar XJR15 and an Aston Martin DB2/4 Bertone Spyder.


The German dealer has been presenting for some years a stand with superb models, exposed under one of the worst lights of the whole motorshow. This year, an interesting young timers supercars triplet was the highlight of the display : a works prototype of the Porsche 959, a Bugatti EB110 and a Ferrari F50. But that's not all, there was also a Porsche 993 GT2 Evo and a prestigious Maserati 5000 GT.
