Retromobile: JD Classics makes a strong debut

Published 06 February 2014

JD Classics’ debut at Retromobile in Paris (5-9 February) has got off to a flying start with an 11-car display featuring Ferrari, Aston Martin, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar and Ferrari.

Highlights include a 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, ‘PLB 23’, a practice car for Sir Stirling Moss prior to his famous 1955 Mille Miglia victory. Sir Stirling used the Gullwing throughout his preparation, piloting the car round the famous Italian roads during April of 1955, as featured in his book 'Stirling Moss Scrapbook 1955'.

It’s also possible to get up close to the ex-Juan Manuel Fangio Jaguar C-type and in-house restored 1952 XK120 Jabbeke Land Speed Record 'Bubble Car', which took Best in Class trophy at The Quail: A Motorsport Gathering 2013. JD Classics Managing Director Derek Hood commented: ‘It is the first time for JD Classics at Retromobile and it’s been great to meet up with old friends from Europe and the USA. The business potential here is amazing.’

Visitors can find JD Classics stand (Hall 1, P89) near the centre of the main Retromobile exhibition hall, positioned midway between the Articurial auction and Mercedes-Benz displays.
