European Motorcars Demo Day

June 6 @ 11:00 am 2:00 pm

General Admission

Demo Days at the Simeone Museum are back!

We invite you to join us for our return to live events with our first Demo Day of the season, European Motorcars.

European Motorcars will feature five or more automobiles from our newly curated exhibit, the Salon of Sports Car Style and Design, including a few newcomers to our collection that have never taken part in a Demo Day event. Like most of our previous Demo Day events, we will begin with a technical explanation that details the unique mechanical components of each participating automobile, followed by a visual presentation on their historic and cultural impact with Dr. Simeone, and concluding with a spirited driving demonstration on our 3-acre “track.” Afterwards, we will answer any questions and let our guests inspect and photograph all participating cars up close.

  • 1933 Squire Roadster
  • 1936 Bugatti Type 57 Atalante
