Passing of Mr. Marcel Seys

On behalf of the entire Autoworld family, we regret to announce the passing of Mr. Marcel Seys, Managing Director of Autoworld since 2002.

We will all miss his warm personality and business insight he brought to our team.
Over the last decades, Mr. Seys was devoted to make Autoworld more than a museum so we can only express our gratitude to this wonderful person.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

Many thanks, merci, bedankt Mr. Seys!

From 14 September until the 1st December 2019 : Carrozzeria Zagato 100 Years

It can be described as an artisanal company, and quite rightly so. With coachwork of renown for the last century, the Zagato company was created in Milan in 1919 by Ugo Zagato.Exactly one hundred years ago. 

To celebrate this centenary, Autoworld has brought together fifteen or so historic models of the make, some of which are quite exceptional.  Among these an Alfa Romeo 1750 (1932), Lancia Appia, Flaminia and a Fulvia Zagato, an Alfa Romeo Junior Z and a TZ, an Aston Martin DB4, Nissan Stelvio…

From 13 December 2019 until 26 January 2020 : So British !, cars & lifestyle

Since ten years, on each odd year, Autoworld organises a biennale exhibition, scenically produced and with in-depth media coverage to end the year on a high note. No longer a question of celebrating the anniversary of one or other make, but to create an atmosphere, a décor… a dream, focussing on the most beautiful, the most legendary or the most representative cars to bring it all to life.

'Salon 1910': the new historical zone of Autoworld

Did you know …

  • that the magnificent building that houses Autoworld since more than 30 years welcomed the first ever Motor and Cycle Show? It was from 1902 through to 1934, when the halls housing the present Musées de l’Automobile et de l’Air were joined. (at that time the Esplanade did not exist).
  • that the cars were tailor-made to order – somewhat similar to designer clothes? The future owner would purchase a chassis from the car brand and then call on a coachbuilder and together with him define the bodywork.

'Exhibitions' or 'Cars in the spotlight: what's the difference?

The exhibitions held by Autoworld in the course of the year are not all of the same order of magnitude. This is why we have decided to use two different names from now on for large and small exhibitions, so that visitors know exactly what to expect when they plan a visit to Autoworld.
