MotorClassica opens its doors for an intimate after hours viewing experience

MotorClassica returns to Melbourne for its landmark 10th event, commencing October 11 to October 13 2019.

Australia’s premier and finest annual exhibition of classic and collectible cars and motorcycles will once again bring back its "After Five" initiative following its success and feedback after being introduced in 2018.


The exhibition of rare classical motor vehicles will once again be hosted at Melbourne’s heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building, and play host to the Australian International Concours d’Elegance – the country’s greatest annual concours competition.


"After Five" will see the doors opened after hours for the duration of MotorClassica, giving office-bound city workers and car enthusiasts alike the perfect opportunity stroll through over 200 hand-selected vehicles in an exclusive and intimate atmosphere.

There will also be a number of specially curated displays, dedicated to notable marques such as Bentley, Citroen, Alvis, Mini and Abarth.

On arrival, After Five attendees will be treated to a complimentary glass of wine, or a non-alcoholic beverage should they choose, with live entertainment provided throughout the evening.

Event Director Paul Mathers stated: "MotorClassica offered the ‘After Five’ experience last year for the first time and it was an outstanding success".


"There was a real relaxed, chilled out atmosphere as visitors mingled and wandered around taking in the beautiful cars, wine glass in hand, accompanied by some live musicians"

"On Friday night we saw many visitors from the nearby Melbourne CBD drop in after work, while on Saturday we saw lots of couples enjoying the show as part of their night out".

The After Five experience will be on offer at a reduced entry price of $25 on both Friday and Saturday, October 11 and 12, from 5pm to 9pm; with MotorClassica closing on October 13.
