InterClassics Maastricht 2020 goes all out with epic designs of “forgotten” car brands
The 27th edition of InterClassics Maastricht will be held from 16 through 19 January 2020 at the MECC Maastricht and will offer a great opportunity for visitors to reminisce about the most memorable car brands that no longer exist, yet which produced beautiful designs in the past. ‘Forgotten Classics’ will be the theme of the upcoming classic car exhibition which has grown to become one of the largest classic car events in the Benelux. Epic models of these ‘Forgotten Classics’ such as the Talbot Lago, Hispano Suiza, Pegaso, Spyker, Minerva, Bristol, Horch and more will all be on display during the 2020 edition of InterClassics Maastricht. These cars are being made available on loan by various international museums and private collectors.
Studebaker Champion Regal Deluxe Starlight Coupe
A total of 25 Forgotten Classics will be on display in the theme pavilion during InterClassics Maastricht 2020. This also includes the 1950 Studebaker Champion Regal Deluxe Starlight Coupe which was designed by Raymond Lowey (1893-1986) who was born in Paris and was one of the greatest industrial designers of the 20th century. He was responsible for the restyling of the Coca-Cola bottle and the logo for the Lucky Strike cigarette brand as well as the design of the Frigidaire refrigerator, the Dutch Sprinter rail cars and the first interior of the Concorde aeroplane. During the 1950s and 1960s, Loewy was the head of Studebaker’s design division, designing the Champion, Hawk and Avanti models. His classic, the bullet-nosed Studebaker Champion Regal Deluxe Starlight Coupe, boasted many aviation-inspired details. The Studebaker will grace the new theme logo for InterClassics Maastricht and is one of the many prized specimens at the exhibition that are being made available by the Louwman Museum in The Hague (Netherlands).
