Mallorca Classic Week 2018
Sensational activities scheduled for Port Adriano’s Mallorca Classic Week
Attractions include the first car ever made, in 1885
Fantastic prizes, including one for Mallorca’s best classic car
To the already extensive range of attractions that entice visitors to our beautiful island we can now add Mallorca Classic Week, an event that combines the best in classic cars, motorcycles and yachts with scenic routes and peerless gastronomy. All this and much more at Mallorca Classic Week, taking place over 19-23 September at the exclusive Philippe Starck-designed Port Adriano marina.
After the massive success of last year, this third edition promises to further consolidate Mallorca Classic Week as a fixture on the international calendar of unmissable events, with packs of collectors and motor aficionados from around the world expected to converge on Port Adriano to enjoy five days of classic cars.
Motors confirmed for this year’s edition include the BMW 3200 Michelotti Vignale, a one-off prototype unveiled at the 1959 Turin Auto Show, formerly owned by the Earl of Chichester and now in the MMW Group Classic Collection; a spectacular supercharged 1929 Bentley Blower, and a 1950 Mercedes Benz 170 S, winner of the 2016 competition. With so many amazing cars in the running, the jury of the international Concours d’Elegance, headed by HRH Prince Leopold of Bavaria, will surely have its work cut out.
As well as prizes in a range of categories, there will also be an award for Mallorca’s Best Classic Car.
And, thanks to the Motorworld Group (motorworld.de), Port Adriano will show the automobile development from the First Motor Car 1885 by Carl Benz to the high-tech Mercedes AMG GT3 racecar. Both cars will led the parade.
A hectic programme of activities
Thursday and Friday are given over to the Pleasure Drive Programme, a series of extraordinary scenic routes designed to showcase some of Mallorca’s most beautiful locations. Can there be any better way to enjoy a classic automobile than by driving through some of the most stunning landscapes in the Mediterranean?

In this amazing atmosphere, where classic cars and yachts are the stars of the show, participants and spectators are sure to enjoy a fun-filled, exciting day.Also will feature an American Car zone with music, food trucks and a lot of liveliness.
On Sunday Morning the show takes to the road again, as classic cars rev their engines for the Mallorca Sight Seeing Drive and the Crime Drive, two lively events in which participants will follow a series of clues devised by detective Nick Nickerbocker around some of the island’s most iconic locations.
