Singapore's Classic Car Weekend!

BY Azfar Hashim

For two days only, classic car fans will be treated to a range of rare models - don't miss this!

Luxglove, a Singapore-based online marketplace offering curated collection of high- quality, pre-loved art, design and other collectibles, has organised the Luxglove Classic Car Weekend, the first event of its kind in Singapore. Held at Asiatique Collections, Dempsey from 24th to 25th September 2016, the event will feature 22 classic cars, as well as panel talks by industry experts on collecting classic cars and other collectibles, such as vintage watches and rare whiskies.

Talenia Phua Gajardo, founder of Luxglove, said, “In Singapore and around the region, there is a burgeoning community of sophisticated and dedicated collectors. Luxglove is a platform that connects these buyers and sellers in a space that until recently, has been very fragmented. We wanted to create a more accessible marketplace that brings to the table curated, quality vintage items, all while disrupting the space with our white glove service, where we help collectors and businesses with their listings.”

She added, “The Luxglove Classic Car Weekend launch event was conceived as a boutique event that would reflect the quality of the goods sold on Luxglove. Bringing the online marketplace experience offline was a way for us to bring like-minded classic car enthusiasts and other collectors together.”

The event’s main attraction is the showcase of 22 high-performance, luxury, classic, and rare cars, featuring car makes such as Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini and Jaguar. A 1961 Ferrari 250 GTE, the 265th unit of a total 954 units, will also be on sale at the even, alongside other exquisite vintage cars. Other cars on display include a 1972 Ferrari 246 GT Dino, 1959 Porsche 356A and 1978 BMW M1, along with a rare Lamborghini Diablo.

Food trucks will be stationed at the event, with The Traveling C.O.W., Coffee Bandits and Popaganda serving up gourmet food and drinks. The two-day event is open to the public - do note that guests are required to download the Luxglove app for entry, which is available from Google Play store and Apple store.
