Techno Classica Essen

The Worlds Greatest Classic Car Show

March 21 - 25 2012

Essen, Germany

2011 Event - 178,300 visitors from 41 countries! 1200 exhibitors from 28 countries! Over 110,000 square metres of exhibition floor space in 17 halls! Approximately 2500 automobiles for sale! Over 130 presentations from clubs and museums!

As a tradition, also collectors of model cars get their money's worth at TECHNO-CLASSICA. They enjoy the show in Essen.

Showing their colours, this almost is a matter of course for Schuco at TECHNO-CLASSICA 2012, since this toy brand itself will be a classic in this year, celebrating its 100th birthday. An exhibition stand at TECHNO-CLASSICA has already become an integral part of in-house tradition for the toy legend from Franconia. Also on ex-hibit: appropriate special models from the developers from Fürth in Essen. In this year, the makers of Schuco have tailored a special model from their piccolo series. It is a Porsche 936-77 with the decoration from "Martini-Racing", which is limited to only 1,000 examples. Furthermore, the company from Franconia shows their novelties for their anniversary year for the first time after the Nuremberg Toy Fair. This includes a new edition of the legendary Rollfix. The wonderfully shaped tin two-seater looks like the spitting image of the Mercedes-Benz 220 S and in the inside, a steel rope with a length of 50 centimetres provides for lots of power in an inertia type drive. The sec-ond top innovation from Schuco is the NSU Quickly, the mother of all mopeds as a 1:10 scale model.

However, not only Schuco presents automobile dreams in a small scale in Essen. Also CMC from the town of Ostfildern here presents their superb 1:18 miniatures in-cluding the probably most spectacular innovation, the Bartoletti-Ferrari-race trans-porter from the 1950s. The matching 1:18 model from the Chinese is assembled of more than 3,000 individual parts in a quality and precision previously known from watchmakers only. The second top classic car from CMC as a 1:18 model is the leg-endary Ferrari California Spider.

Fans of model cars can go on a discovery tour in almost every exhibition hall in Es-sen. Particularly the German manufacturers such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and Volkswagen will make a point of offering special models this year on the occasion of TECHNO-CLASSICA - this is a certainty. Since one thing is clear: model cars also are optimal ambassadors of a brand, in particular if it is a matter of their own history and classic cars. Furthermore, the show in Essen also attracts an un-foreseen variety of model car dealers, presenting their comprehensive range of prod-ucts. Also the stars of the Nuremberg fair are among them. Even specialists with a desire for antiquarian goods can find interesting model cars in Essen. Thus, the world of the classic and young classic cars is of special attraction also as miniatures.
