Luxglove, a Singapore-based online marketplace offering a curated collection of high-quality, pre-loved art, design and other collectibles, is set to present Luxglove Classic Car Weekend, the first event of its kind in Singapore.
Held from 24 to 26 September at Asiatique Collections located in Dempsey in Singapore, the event will feature a showcase of 22 classic cars, as well as panel talks by industry experts on collecting classic cars and other collectibles, such as vintage watches and rare whiskies.
Talenia Phua Gajardo, founder of Luxglove, says, "In Singapore and around the region, there is a burgeoning community of sophisticated and dedicated collectors. Luxglove is a platform that connects these buyers and sellers in a space that until recently, has been very fragmented. We wanted to create a more accessible marketplace that brings to the table curated, quality vintage items, all while disrupting the space with our white glove service, where we help collectors and businesses with their listings."
"The Luxglove Classic Car Weekend launch event was conceived as a boutique event that would reflect the quality of the goods sold on Luxglove.Bringing the online marketplace experience offline was a way for us to bring like-minded classic car enthusiasts and other collectors together."
22 rare classic cars will be on display during the weekend, including a 1964 Ferrari Dino 264 GT, 1968 Porsche 356 and 1978 BMW M1, along with a rare Lamborghini Diablo.
A 1961 Ferrari 250 GTE, the 265th unit produced in the first of three series, of which 954 units were produced, will be on sale at the event, alongside other exquisite vintage cars.
In addition to the static showcase, a session featuring special detailing techniques (paint correction, chrome polishing, leather feeding, wax application with Zymol Royale) will be demonstrated on a 1972 Ferrari Dino 246GT.
A selection of other items by curated sellers and dealers will be available for purchase at special prices during the event. These will include beautiful design objects and furniture from Asiatique, pre-owned watches and various rare whiskies.
Watch lovers and collectors are encouraged to bring down pre-owned watches on Sunday for free valuation services provided by the Senior Watch Specialist at Christie's Hong Kong, Nicholas Biebuyck.
In addition, a complimentary photography service will also be provided for guests wishing to list their timepieces on Luxglove.
Panel talks held in an intimate salon-style format, will cover topics ranging from the mechanics of collecting, to growing the hobby into an investment.
On Saturday, guests can also look forward to a whisky tasting session featuring an exceptional portfolio of single cask Scotch whiskies at a dedicated whisky lounge.
The two-day event is open to the public.
Guests will be required to download the Luxglove app for entry. The Luxglove app is available for download on the Google Play store and Apple store.
