To brighten up the start of a new school year, our boutique offers a wide range of items for children: fluorescent clothing, note pads, pencils, pens and biros … And for all fans of the Audi Quattro, whose exhibition kicks-off on 11th September, an array of Audi gadgets, and obviously some wonderful scale models.
Since mid-July this car proudly takes centre stage in the heart of the museum: a real VW Beetle 1300cc dating from 1969 in a specially built Bburago box to welcome her. Anyone can win it by purchasing, in our shop, its 1/24th Bburago scale model. Limited to a mere 4,000 units, the scale model is sold together with a small card to be completed with the coordinates of the purchaser and which will act as the ticket for the draw to be held on Sunday 14th February at midday, during the 13th Love Bugs Parade. Price of the scale model: 30 €uros (or 40 €uros with an admission ticket to Autoworld). The possibility exists to purchase it by correspondence by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (postage cost 10 €).

With his slap on 80 years André has practically done everything, experienced everything, seen everything at Autoworld. Apart from general management he has held (almost) all the positions. Even though retired, he has the museum in his skin and always ready when called upon for an evening event, helping with the setting up of exhibitions, or keeping a close eye on children who were building Lego cars this summer. Always ready, always smiling but with a strong temperament. “You can’t pull the wool over his eyes”! and when it comes to being a gendarme at the entrance to ...
