Retro Clásica Bilbao Barakaldo

15. - 17. November 2024 | Classic and Vintage Automobile and Motorcycle Exhibition

Since its establishment in 2011, the Retro Clásica Bilbao has emerged as a renowned exhibition for classic cars and collector vehicles. Primarily in the north of Spain, but also in France due to its geographical proximity, it has become a significant destination for aficionados of vintage automobiles. The name of the exhibition serves as a tribute to these timeless gems, with "Retro" and "Clásica" encapsulating its core essence. The annual event is held at the BEC Bilbao Exhibition Center in Barakaldo, a city known for its industrial golden age and rich cultural heritage..

Behind the organization of this exhibition is the company Eventos del Motor SL, which has distinguished itself through the planning and execution of events centered around motorized vehicles. The Retro Clásica Bilbao primarily focuses on classic cars, collectible vehicles, and the culture surrounding them. Attendees can marvel at a range of rare vehicle models, spare parts, and specialized restoration services.

The exhibition plays a vital role in preserving the motorized cultural heritage of the region and promotes cultural exchange between classic car enthusiasts and collectors. Notably, it underscores its role in showcasing vehicles made in Spain, especially those produced in the Basque Country, thus strengthening the local automotive tradition.

Among the highlights are the Motorshow, a classic car competition, and a special exhibit of convertibles from the 1950s and 60s. Iconic vehicles such as the Ford Thunderbird, Mercedes 190 SL, and Austin Healey 3000 are featured. Additionally, there's an exhibit paying tribute to the golden era of rallies and mountain races, offering visitors deep insights into the world of Dakar through two exceptional vehicles.

Exhibitors, primarily from sectors like automobile manufacturing, restoration, automobilia, and associations, bring their expertise and diverse perspectives to the event. The exhibition predominantly attracts collectors, automotive industry experts, restorers, and, of course, classic car enthusiasts.

The Retro Clásica Bilbao is also part of a series of larger car exhibitions held at various locations, bolstering its prominence through networking and synergies with similar events.
