The surprises do not stop here: the 15, 000m2 of the Heritage Hub are also used for an exhibition of more than 250 vehicles, some of which have never before been displayed. The central space features eight thematic exhibitions, with each eight cars. 64 engines of all, the oldest dating from 1908 and the most recent one of 2008. The first theme is called “Archistars”, and highlights innovative vehicles and success.

then Comes the “Concept car and cars custom”, which is home to a few machines exceptional as the Abarth 2400 Coupe Alemanno of Carlo Abarth, or the Lancia Astura Farina and Flaminia Coupé Loraymo. The “Ecology and sustainable development”, we can in particular observe ancient prototypes electric: the X1/23 of 1974 and the Ecobasic of 1999. The location for theme “epic journeys”, contains machinery for adventurers. Among them, we will focus on the Fiat 1100 E who made the first round-the-world with a single driver traveling more than 72 000 kilometres (1953), but also the Fiat 131 Abarth Diesel in 1977, prior to its commercialization, has won the raid London-Sydney.
The category of “Records and racing”, is notably composed of a car, one of the oldest of the exposure (Fiat S61 of 1908), a single-seater (Formula 1 Lancia D50) and a champion of endurance events (Lancia Beta Montecarlo Turbo). The theme of “Small and safe”, he proposes, among other prototypes, such as the Fiat City Taxi (1968), a vehicle for public use, featuring a sidewall asymmetrical, and the models ESV 1500, ESV 2000, both specially designed to analyze the safety and resistance in case of a collision.
Even if the design is a subjective element, the “Marks” style, will do its best to expose the body of Italian among the more attractive, like that of the Lancia Aurelia B20, for example. Finally, the category “the era of The rally” will notably be composed of Lancia which have marked the history of this discipline. The Lancia Fulvia 1600 HF, Lancia Delta Integrale HF, and, of course, the legendary Lancia Stratos HF will thus be of the party.
