OLDIES AND GOLDIES
Supercars at the Kö-Bogen
Glittering summer sun above the Kö-Bogen by Daniel Libeskind, 20 highly polished classic cars and a really great atmosphere among the almost 50 invited guests. A flurry of flashbulbs for the supercars that Bernhard Kerkloh from Movendi and his team brought to the Kö-Bogen.
The fascination with historic cars is always very different and different for everyone — sometimes it’s the heritage of the automobile that excites, sometimes it’s the enthusiasm for fancy design or refined details, technology — love has many facets. The car enthusiast scene around Düsseldorf is extremely high-caliber — people know each other, whether as at this event from Düsseldorf, Cologne, Aachen — from all points of the compass came the car collectors with their mobile works of art. They are beautiful, striking and design icons: the sports cars of the 1950s to 1970s. In recent years, these cars have become coveted collector’s items and enjoy absolute cult status, which was immediately confirmed by the gathering of curious people at the Kö-Bogen.
Rarities such as Ferrari 250 California Spider, Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing, Iso Grifo 7 Litre, AC Cobra, Maserati Vignale Spider up to the Porsche 962 Le Mans winning car shone in front of the Kö-Bogen. It was a parade of automotive excellence.
