100th anniversary of BMW at InterClassics Maastricht

MAASTRICHT, 2 December 2015 – BMW Nederland lends is a main sponsor of the 23rd edition of InterClassics Maastricht. The main theme of the 100th anniversary of BMW will be presented at the classic car show, and will be marked with an exclusive collection of 30 classic BMWs. InterClassics Maastricht will take place from 14 to 17 January 2016 at MECC Maastricht.

100th anniversary of BMW
The organisers of InterClassics Maastricht saw the 100th anniversary of BMW as the perfect theme for the 2016 edition of the show. Erik Panis, Director of InterClassics: "BMW is a prestigious auto marque with a huge history and sensational cars. We are honoured that we don't just have BMW as our main theme, but also as main sponsor of InterClassics Maastricht." Peter Haug, Director of Marketing at BMW Group Nederland: “BMW Group Nederland has seen InterClassics grow in recent years to become the wonderful event that it is today. We look forward to exhibiting there in our anniversary year."

3.0 CSL Batmobile
In partnership with BMW Clubs Nederland, the organisers have a number of spectacular cars in store for visitors. Alongside the 'white 328', the BMW 507 Roadster will also be on display at the show. Elvis Presley once owned a white one, followed later by a red version. But the famous 3.0 CSL ‘Batmobile’ is perhaps the car with the greatest appeal in the entire collection. The successful racer, which takes its name from its chunky racing kit front and back, was entered in the European Touring Car Championship. The car is best known from the European circuits, but BMW also entered it in the United States throughout the 1970s.

British Royals: Bentley & Rolls Royce
Alongside the 100th anniversary of BMW, the second theme is British Royals: Bentley & Rolls Royce. In partnership with De Mascotte, the Dutch association of Bentley & Rolls Royce owners, the history of these unique British classics will be extensively portrayed.

InterClassics Maastricht will take place from Thursday 14 to Sunday 17 January 2016 at MECC Maastricht. The classic car show traditionally attracts many buyers, car lovers and day trippers. Discounted entry tickets can be bought online. Children up to 12 years are free of charge. For further information, see www.interclassicsmaastricht.nl
