It would appear that the weather gods blessed Eurofest 2013. A top temperature of around 25 degrees, with a few wispy clouds in the sky made for a pleasant day viewing a wide array of pristine European vehicles and a decent backdrop for photographs. Held at the Birdwood National Motor Museum in the Adelaide Hills, the drive there and back through some of the best roads Adelaide has to offer made for an absolutely top day out!
With cars from various European marques, there was something for everyone’s taste. A few JDM vehicles even dared raise their heads….
A couple of notable exceptions from the images are an orange McLaren MP4-12C and a grey Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. I made a note to myself to take photos of such cars BEFORE heading to the bakery in the future…. I manage to snap this though…
However there were still enough fastidiously-detailed machines on display to keep lovers of fine machinery inspired.
Some personal faves for me were the bright green 911 GT-3
and a beautiful 1970’s 911 in light blue.
The most peculiar car on display was easily the yellow Purvis Eureka. With its hydraulic canopy raised it more closely resembled an autobot mid-transformation.
As the event was hosted by the BMW Drivers Club of South Australia, one would expect a large degree of BMWs on display. However I was enthused by the variety, which included a couple of angry-looking E30s and plenty of M’s, including an Estoril Blue E36 M-Coupe.
To top it all off, a friend’s Renault Megane RS265 won best French car. I think the numberplate says it all!
Overall it was a great day out. The only thing I intend to do next year is to take more photos! Until then… Enjoy clicking through the full gallery below!
