The Techno Classica show in Essen, Germany is perhaps the biggest world fair for classic cars. That is the reason why the German automobile manufacturers are represented with large historic booths, like Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Volkswagen, Porsche and BMW.
You can count dozens of Mercedes 300 SLs for sale, but there is also a varied selection of Italian and French cars brought by classic car clubs, international dealers or by the factories themselves.
At the same time, the organizers staged a special show for 95 years of Zagato.
Here is a selection of what has to be seen in Essen with the Zagato selection coming last, so scroll down!
