The former Heritage Motor Centre was reopened in February 2016 with a new name, ‘British Motor Museum’ after a £M1.1 refurbishment. A new facility, the ‘Collections Centre’, built at a cost of £M4.0 was opened at the same time. The Collections Centre, which can only be visited via  guided tours, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, houses the Jaguar Heritage Collection and the Motor Museum’s reserve collection. All these cars have been built in Britain, mostly in the Midlands.

The last time I visited the Heritage Motor Centre was about ten years ago so I was keen to see what improvements had been made.

From 3 December 2015 to 31 January 2016, the Autoworld museum Brussels is devoting its fourth major year-end exhibition to the "bella macchina italiana" of the legendary '50s to '80s.  

Italian Car Passion Brussels

The ‘50s and ‘60s were undeniably the golden era of Italian automobiles. Constructors such as Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia, Ferrari, Maserati… and later Lamborghini, stretched their levels of ingenuity to produce ever more powerful cars. Designers and coachbuilders such as Pininfarina, Bertone, Gandini, Giugiaro, Zagato, Spada, Touring Superleggera… were solicited from everywhere and from well over their borders. The Italian signatures acquired a unique world renown and prestige. To this day the “made in Italy” sports cars still captivate one and all. It has become a byword of passion, of elegance, of dolce vita, but also that of extremes and the lust for life. 

In a scenography recreating the unique atmosphere of a “piazza” and its narrow Italian streets, visitors will be able to admire the most awesome cars produced in Italy from close by. On show; among others, the rare Disco Volante dating from 1952 – in parallel with the present Disco Volante by Touring Superleggera -, a Lamborghini Miura, a 350 GT Touring, a Maserati Ghibli… and many more. Several modern supercars such as the Lamborghini Veneno and the LaFerrari will also be at the rendezvous.
