Alfa Romeo's 105 Spider, aka Duetto, celebrates its 50th birthday this year. A Lambo Aventador Miura like this one will be at the Italian Car Day on November 13.

A LAMBORGHINI Aventador, like the one pictured, but finished in scream green, will be among the many cars on display at Gloucester Park on Sunday, November 13, at the Rotary Italian Car Day.

But quite a few of the cars won’t even be Italian, because among this year’s features will be a section on cars from famous designers Pininfarina, Michelotti and Bertone, whose works extended to many American, English and Japanese cars, and cars from other nations.

So, peppered among the Alfa Romeos, Fiats, Lancias, Ferraris and Maseratis could be some Triumphs, Mercedes, BMWs, Citroens, Volvos, Opels, maybe even a Hino or Toyota.

The event, usually held in the Guildford area, has moved to Gloucester Park for more space, easier access, lots of shade and seating.

The popular East Perth venue has a restaurant, bar and cafe.

Exotic cars apart, there will also be Italian motorcycles and scooters, music, some vendor stalls and among the special features will be Pininfarina through the years and the 50th birthday of the Alfa 105 Spider – the star of Dustin Hoffman’s The Graduate movie.

Entry is $15 for adults, children free and every paid adult will get a free family pass to Gloucester Park valued at $24 for future use.

The event is from 9.30am to 3pm and all funds raised go to charity.
