From 20 to 23 October Auto Moto d’Epoca 2022 is preparing to open the doors of the Padova exhibition center to enthusiasts, collectors and onlookers from all over the world. The 39 edition of the event is the last one hosted in the city of Padua before the transfer to Bologna on the occasion of the 2023 edition.
Some news of the 2022 edition
There are also many “firsts” and news this year. Like the first time of the exhibition organized in collaboration with the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena. In fact, from this collection comes the Ferrari 125 S, the first car with the Prancing Horse brand to inaugurate the exhibition “Classic Ferrari – The jewels of the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena at Auto Moto d’Epoca 2022”.
The debut of the 125 S on the Piacenza circuit was, in the words of Enzo Ferrari, a “promising failure”, due to a breakdown that forced Franco Cortese to retire. A car that won 6 out of thirteen races in the following weeks!
Other models include the F40, which crowned Enzo Ferrari’s aspiration for a sensational car to celebrate the forty years of activity of the Modenese company.
Fun, performing, status symbols: in the 70s, large-displacement motorcycles took off, conquering the imagination of both the public and the cinema and laying the foundations for an entire market segment. “Supermoto 70” is the title of the exhibition, curated with the Veloce Classic collection, which celebrates the myth of superbikes.
“Taste” of the exhibition dedicated to rallies
Preview at Auto e Moto d’Epoca 2022: the Gino Macaluso Foundation for Historic Cars presents “The Golden Age Of Rally. The great challenges, an unprecedented exhibition on the international scene, which the public will be able to discover from 27 October until 2 May 2023 in the rooms of the National Automobile Museum in Turin.
In the Padova stand of the Mauto, housed in Pavilion 1, the Foundation will give a “taste” of the exhibition, exhibiting two of the most representative cars of its collection. That is the Lancia Stratos with Alitalia livery and the BMC Mini Cooper S, iconic specimens, protagonists of legendary challenges. As well as the Fiat 124 Sport Spider and the Renault Alpine A110, which visitors to the event will be able to discover at the Aci Storico space.
Another novelty of the 2022 edition will be the presence of vintage trucks and work vehicles and an in-depth study on historical aeronautics.
Auto Moto d’Epoca 2022: the spare parts market
As always, the choice that enthusiasts will find in the pavilion dedicated to original vintage spare parts, both used and still new ones, will be very wide, wrapped in the packaging with which they were distributed to workshops and mechanics decades ago.
With these and with the most faithful reproductions brought back to life by the workers and artisans of the ancient production plants, the salon is able to satisfy 100 percent of the requests of restorers and collectors.
