Rare, exotic and vintage. You’d think we’re talking about some snazzy new cheese, but no. The allure of a classic automobile will always mystify the modern man and evoke feelings of style, substance and significance upon resting behind the wheel of one of these old chariots.

The exhibition attracted a list of esteemed makers including Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Maserati, Ford, BMW, Alfa Romeo, Lotus, Aston Martin, Morgan and Porsche just to name a few.
Photographer Filip Konikowski went along to see what all the old fuss was about.
