Six extraordinary supercars to see at the Compello Festival of Cars
Check out more than 125 supercars, sports, racing and classic cars at the country's hottest motor show.
Filling a vast warehouse with classic and performance cars, arranging businesses to exhibit and then inviting a few thousand people to come and enjoy it, was once a perfectly normal thing for a car club to do. But in the age of COVID, it takes a pretty brave organisation to dream that big.
But that’s just what the Melbourne-based Compello Club for exotic, rare and supercar owners is planning with its Festival of Cars next weekend.
On April 18, the doors will swing open on a 4000 square-metre warehouse in Melbourne’s Moorabbin, showcasing 125 supercars, sports, racing and classic cars, 50 exhibition stalls and 25 trading stands in what the club claims is the first under-cover car show since Covid struck.
So what can car-show-starved lovers of high-end motoring expect to see? Plenty, including lots of older classic and performance cars, current-model supercars that can’t be seen anywhere else in the country and everything in between. According to Compello Club spokesperson Craig Phinn, every car is `hand-picked and cool’.
If you want to see and hear the cars in action be sure to be there at 1pm for the exit parade.
Here are just six of the extraordinary cars you won’t want to miss.
