Paris’ Rétromobile Show, Feb. 5–9, will feature an exhibition dedicated to Bertone, in partnership with the Automotoclub Storico Italiano. This special exhibit will be showcasing 10 extraordinary prototypes built between 1969 and 2001: the Autobianchi Runabout (1969), the Suzuki Go (1972), the Citroën Camargue (1972), the Ferrari Rainbow (1976), the Volvo Tundra (1979), the Chevrolet Ramarro (1984), the Citroën Zabrus (1986), the Lamborghini Genesis (1988), the BMW Pickster (1998) and the Opel Filo (2001). These cars, representing a combined worth of nearly €2 million, have been granted special authorization by Italy’s Ministry for Cultural Assets and Activities to temporarily leave the country to be displayed at Retromobile.
In September 2015, the Automotoclub Storico Italiano acquired the historical Carrozzeria Bertone collection by taking part in the auction held following the company’s bankruptcy as part of the ensuing legal proceedings. This collection is made up of 79 items – including a number of complete vehicles in working order –, as well as chassis and design models. It is now on public display at the Volandia Museum at Milan’s Malpensa Airport.
