Porsches, Ferraris, Bentleys, VWs and Chevrolets (and more) star in growing modern and classic car show
8 September 2013

The Schloss Bensberg Classic and Concours d'Elegance may not be that familiar, but it is now in its fifth year and has the enthusiastic backing of the VW Group.

As a result, it is growing bigger every year, with some of the world's best individual car collectors mixing with some of the finest cars from the collections of Porsche, Bentley, Lamborghini and Volkswagen (among others).

As a result, there was something for everyone, be it high-end exotica or the more mundane (and amusing) VW T1 camper vans, many of which were painted in arresting colour schemes.

Modern car fans weren't left out, either; among the cars left on the pavement outside the main parade ground were a Bugatti Veyron, Lamborghini Aventador, Lamborghini Gallardo and Bentley Mulsanne.

Our Verdict

Volkswagen Golf

As an old fogey i'd much rather be looking at the cars inside the parade ground than those on the outside.
