Milano Autoclassica 2020

Milano Autoclassica 2020

Approfittando dell’intensa settimana ho avuto il tempo per metabolizzare meglio Milano Autoclassica, la prima fiera (in concomitanza con Modena Motor Gallery) in questa era post (post?) Covid.

Il coraggio di ripartire

Questa frase, che è anche il titolo del video riepilogativo con gli highlights della fiera, rappresenta un po’ il riassunto del pensiero sull’evento.

Non si poteva far finta di niente, ma non si poteva non ripartire. Con tutti i problemi e dubbi e soprattutto le defezioni.
Io per primo, in arrivo in treno da Firenze, con un viaggio fatto di gel e FPP2, ho varcato i tornelli della fiera di Rho con molti pensieri.

In verità gli spazi ampi e (purtroppo) il ridotto pubblico (almeno nel ricordo del venerdi’ dello scorso anno) hanno fatto il resto. Da Milano parlano su successo. E io sono con loro. La fiera è stata un successo, ben oltre i numeri

I compleanni

Ma veniamo alle auto, le vere protagoniste. Il trittico d’ingresso, un classico per Milano, era piacevolmente incentrato sulla Mille Miglia. Un omaggio doveroso e puntuale, in vista della partenza del 22 ottobre 2020, in un calendario sconvolto per il Covid.

Due compleanni eccellenti hanno dato lo spunto per un’esposizione di modelli Alfa Romeo (110 anni) e Pininfarina (90 anni) che rappresentano l’eccellenza motoristica e di design dell’industria italiana.

Molto apprezzata l’esposizione per i 100 anni di Mazda, più che altro per aver portato in fiera la rara (e raramente vista sulle nostre sponde) Mazda Cosmo Sport con motore rotativo Wankel. Una delle gemme dell’evento.

I padroni di casa

Lo stand del CMAE non ha deluso le attese. Un trittico di vetture Alfa Romeo storiche spettacolari tra 1900 TI Pininfarina, 6C 2500 Villa d’Este e 1900 Cabriolet Pininfarina.

Il momento personalmente più alto è stato l’incontro con Elisabetta Cozzi del Museo Fratelli Cozzi: gentile, competente, appassionata e gran storyteller! Verrò presto in sede per una visita e per parlare ancora. Grazie!

Commercianti e club

Tasto dolente (ma c’era d’aspettarselo) il numero di espositori, in calo rispetto allo scorso anno. Ma non c’è da stupirsi, anche osservando le gare storiche attualmente in corso, dove in media le presenze sono del -50%.

Da segnalare in particolar modo il doppio stand di Daniele Turrisi, che esponeva in un sol colpo una Alfa 6C 1750 Zagato (di colore bianco!), una Lancia Aurelia B22 one-off appartenuta ai reali del Belgio, una ASA 1000 GT Cabrio (già vista in altre occasioni) e una rarissima Fiat 1500 6C Berlinetta Touring.

Bello lo stand di BMW Club Italia, che aveva una bellissima M1 blu Scuro come centro dell’esposizione.

Fotogallery e conclusioni

Se il messaggio era quello di ripartire nonostante tutto, Milano ha centrato l’obbiettivo. E’ una fase difficile per tutti e il movimento delle classiche non fa eccezione.

Quello di Rho è un grido: “ce la possiamo fare”, e in un clima complessivamente di attesa per gli sviluppi della situazione, Milano ha illuminato lo scorso weekend dandoci un briciolo di fiducia in più

Ed infine, ecco la fotogallery dall’evento

BMW 700 LS Luxe (1963)

A time where BMW wasn’t all cool and luxury cars. These 700 are basic rear wheels drive rear engined cars. This in particular is a LS Luxe version, a two doors only model with the peculiar longer wheelbase if compared to the standard 700, created as a middle way between the 700 and the already marketed Neue Klasse.

This car, quite successful, gave enough economic solidity to let the brand grow till what is today.
This car is the today’s solution of the #tccchallenge game. Some guys made me notice that this one was been already featured in the game. It was the 5th July game!. I’d say: wow, you have better memory than mine! Anyway this is the same car but shot in a different location, so the game will be accepted as legitimate!
Thank you all for your (even critic) involvement in this ❤️

BMW 320 (1977)

Ready to race, this superb BMW E21 320 from 1977 looks great at the departure of the fine @targaacbologna classic race near Bologna last sunday.

Loving the Modena plate and the overall state of this car dressed with one of my favourite colors, the Phönix Orange.

Ok, is not a 323i and I think that is even a 4 cylinders version but, who cares? It’s a joy to see

BMW 2002 Turbo (1972)

Long story short. Take a 2002 tii and put a KKK turbine in it. The result is the first European large series turbo-charged car with that kind of behaviour you can expect from a 170HP BMW with a kicking 0.55 bar pressure spinner.
Only 1672 made (they seem more looking at the cars that show up in the fairs) all lefthand drive and only in three colors: white, silver or black.

Fun fact: the common “obrut” sticker that you can spot on many front bumper spoiler of these cars (that people can read as “Turbo” from the rearview mirror) was placed on the pre-series model but WASN’T a standard feature on the series car.
Many owners decided to put it on their cars anyway (not present on these fine one) and it’s somehow an iconic story for this great little piece of cars’ history.

The middle BMW #Ciclootto 🏁 Classic cars 📍BMW 700 LS Luxus (1963) 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ We have to thank these cars for the BMW growth in the last 60 years. The BMW 700, an economic but very sales successful car, gave the economic stability to BMW to create the new sport 60s sedans and later, re-enter the upper class segments. This compact car designed by Giovanni Michelotti is presented here in the peculiar LS Luxus version, available only on the two doors – four seats sedan version, that has a 16cm longer wheelbase and was proposed as a middle way between the standard BMW 700 and the Neue Klasse range, already on the market when this special version came out. 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ #bmw #bmw700 #bmwclassic #michelotti #fuoriserie #monaco #style #classiccar #classiccars #vintage #design #pop #petrolheads #classiccarlover #retrocars #classiccaroftheday #autodepoca #classiccardaily #clasico #1960s #1960sstyle

Racing an oldtimer I'm always fascinated from the lines of the BMW 328, still contemporary at my eyes with that great aerodynamic shape. We are talking about a car dated 1939! This roadster is the first I see with a rollbar mounted on, hinged to the rear base of the spare wheel. Something necessary in a car involved in autodrome races, one of the peculiarities of the @modenacentoore classic (this picture was taken at the 2017 edition) that is based on session on the main Italian circuits. Great car! —————– 📸 Reward the #contentcreators 🎈Follow @ciclootto —————– #ciclootto #bmw #bmw328 #bmwcars #gemancars #bmwclassic #racecars #classiccars #classiccar #germancar #vintagecar #vintagecars #oldcars #carsofintsagram #oldcar #vintage #bmwroadster #328roadster #1930s #rarecars #modenacentoore
