ESSEN, Germany - Dutch tyre manufacturer Vredestein exhibited its Classic range at the 25th Techno Classica show in Essen, Germany, in April 2013.

The world-renowned show is famous for its vintage, classic and prestige automobiles, motorsport, motorcycles, rare spare parts and restoration. More than 180 000 visitors from as many as 30 countries attend the show where 1200 exhibitors display their unique products and services.

The Vredestein range, sold exclusively in South Africa by the Apollo Tyres group, presented its Classic line – a new range of tyres with a nostalgic appearance and modern technology.


The Vredestein Sprint Classic was showcased on a beautiful Bentley Continental S2 and a very special Saab 96 rally car.

Vredestein believes such a tyre should be an extension of a car. In other words, a beautiful car deserves tyres that match its appearance. This is why Vredestein designs and manufactures the Sprint Classic – a tyre that combines the nostalgic feel of yesteryear with the technology of today – especially for lovers of vintage designs.

The Techno Classica is considered one of the world’s leading fairs for collectable automobiles. It sets the trends of the vintage vehicle scene yearly and has become the leading meeting point and trading centre of the international classic scene.
