Exclusive to the 39th edition of AME, taking place from 20th to 23rd October 2022 at Padua Fair, are Classic Ferrari models, the golden age of rallying, the birth of the super road bikes in the 1970s, and the great victories on the Montecarlo Rally.

An exceptional Ferrari exhibition for the 39th edition of Auto e Moto d'Epoca. Put together by the Fair in collaboration with the Enzo Ferrari Museum of Modena, the Classic Ferrari Exhibition − Gems of the Enzo Ferrari Museum of Modena at Auto e Moto d'Epoca 2022 − will showcase Ferrari's craftsmanship, dedication, tradition and innovation for the first time at Padua fair to celebrate a timeless legend which continues to grow and thrive also thanks to the precious certification, maintenance, and restoration work carried out by the Classic Ferrari Department. The Ferrari 125 S will be the first car with the prancing horse logo to inaugurate the event. The 125 S debuted on the Piacenza circuit in 1947 and, in the words of Enzo Ferrari, it was a "promising failure" due to a defect which forced Franco Cortese to bow out. But in the weeks that followed, the car won no less than 6 out of 13 races.

The Mauto − National Car Museum − is taking part with a preview of the "The Golden Age of Rally" exhibition, a journey across the history of this sporting discipline focusing on models which, between the 1960s and 1990s, won the most important races of the championship − from Montecarlo to the Rally Safari, from the Mille Laghi in Finland to Sanremo. Iconic models on show include the Mini Cooper and the Lancia Stratos, the stars of races now deemed legendary. 

Also legendary was Sandro Munari's victory in Montecarlo in 1972, alongside driver Mario Mannucci  in a Lancia Fulvia HF 1600 number 14. That Lancia will be at the centre of the ACI - Storico stand.  Coming to the exhibition is also the A112 Abarth: this choice is aimed at attracting younger collectors and suggests that access to the world of vintage cars requires a great deal of passion but also does not necessarily entail a hefty financial investment.

New generations of enthusiasts are growing in numbers at Auto e Moto d'Epoca; as a result, there is a noticeable increase in the number of Youngtimers on show.

Supermoto 70 is dedicated to motorbike from the 1970s. Fun and high performance − the ultimate status symbol − these high-powered road bikes captivated people's imagination, appearing in movies and laying the foundations of an entire market segment. Put together with Veloce Classic London, the exhibition tells the story of the birth and growth of this phenomenon, focusing on the golden era of the Japanese motorbikes and the history of the most significant models manufactured in Italy and Europe at this time of great expansion of motorcycles. 

Next to the original and exclusive exhibitions organised and hosted by AME every year, visitors and collectors hailing from 46 countries all over the world have already booked their tickets and will be among the first to choose from the thousands of classic cars on sale, exhibited by both the best specialised dealers in Europe and other collectors. Auto e Moto d'Epoca is the best equipped market place for vintage cars and spare parts available in Europe; it can can satisfy almost all request and make sure everyone finds the car or spare part they are looking for. 

Among the spare parts, 'new' rare parts are highly sought after: parts which are still wrapped in their original packaging.
