Auto Italia is arguably one of Brooklands' biggest events of the year. Celebrating all things Italian with countless cars and, indeed some motorbikes. 

PaddlUp had a stand in the trade section of the event with three stunning Ferraris; our branded F40, an exquisite Roma, and a listed 812 Superfast, all presented in unconventional grey. Alongside our stand were professional detailers, car memorabilia stores as well as DK Engineering displaying some stunning Ferraris including a Bianco Avus 599 GTO. 

We weren't the only ones to bring a one of a kind example, it was quite the spectacle to see an Alfa Romeo GTAm. This car created some controversy for its 'high price tag,' at launch, but it did look fantastic in the flesh, sporting its Sauber Engineering carbon side skirts, aggressive carbon kit including wing, front splitter and full roll cage. Limited to only 500 units, this track-focused 2-seater certainly made a statement.

A stunning Miura S drove a 250-mile round trip to attend the event. With just shy of 30,000 on the clock, it is driven and enjoyed by the owners, as well as being rented out for filming purposes. Some may remember it from Top Gear when it was driven by Richard Hammond.

The variety and volume of both classic and modern Italian cars at the event are unmatched. A plethora of dramatic rally cars, immaculate classics and premium supercars meant there was something for everyone. 

A line-up of cars was demonstrated on the Mercedes-Benz World circuit while the Test Hill was fully operational for cars to pit themselves against Brooklands' ultimate challenge.
