Bologna, 06 – 14 December 2014
The annual Bologna Motor Show was held between 06 – 14 December at the Bologna Fiere exhibition complex, featuring almost everything associated with two and four wheel motor transport, both for the road and competition. The show also features an outside live action arena, where every day there are a variety of activities on different courses that are laid out, ranging from motocross, through drift displays, GT car challenges, to the always popular Ferrari F1 Pit Stop Challenge on the final day, which this year featured Giancarlo Fisichella doing the driving duties.

The show featured not only current cars and motorcycles, but a wide selection of classic and historic vehicles, notably the expansive area occupied by the Museo Ferrari and Museo Enzo Ferrari, with eighteen cars on display in four separate displays, together with a F1 Simulator Challenge, which always proves to be a great attraction wherever it appears. The Ferrari models on display ranged from one of the earliest production cars, a 166 Inter Coupe with Touring coachwork, through a 166 MM/53 Berlinetta, a 250 GT PF Coupe and a 275 GTB4, a rare Dino 206 GT, F1 and racing GT cars, to an example of the current F12 Berlinetta.
Close by was a smaller but attractive Maserati display, which apart from featuring the current Ghibli and Quattroporte models, also had a 6C/34 Monoposto, the 420 M “Eldorado” Monoposto and a Tipo 63 “Birdcage”. Lamborghini also showed part of their history with a Miura SV sharing the stand with the new Aventador and Huracan models. If you wanted wild and menacing, then you needed to look no further than the Pagani stand with their bare carbon fibre finish Zonda R, with its multitude of aerodynamic appendages. In the same hall, from an earlier era there were displays of the lesser known Bandini and Stanguellini models.
The other halls also featured some interesting displays, notably a colourful array of Lancia Stratos’ in a variety of liveries, which shared stand space with an Alpine A110, whilst the Porsche Club Italia had a varied display of 911 variants together with a 959. Alfa Romeo also featured prominently with a nice line-up of classic models running through a Giulietta Sprint Veloce, SZ, a 155 GTA SuperTurismo, a GTV Cup, plus a number of other models through the 8C to the current Guilietta Sprint and 4C. Elsewhere there were some new concept cars and prototypes, like the Filandi Ever S and the Willys AW380 Berlinetta, together with a wide variety of both modern and classic race and rally cars, numerous automobile and accessory trade stands, car clubs, competition driving schools, in fact almost anything automobile related that one could think of.
