Malta has a high concentration of Supercars and Exotics from major automotive brands including McLaren, Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini, to name a few.
Petrol heads from all over the island hit the streets early on a Sunday morning, to drive their cars and meet fellow enthusiasts for a coffee and a chat by the sea, in various locations around the island. The Coast Road is a very popular stretch of road, spans approx. 22km from St Julian’s, through Xemxija Bay and takes you all the way to Cirkewwa; the northest spot on the island overlooking Gozo. This is the place to cruise around the twisty turns, with photographers sitting at strategic points, ready to snap a picture of the cars whizzing by. Other car enthusiasts would spend hours just watching these magnificent machines pass by.
The cars out come from every motor era … from the 60s Jaguar E Type to the 80s Ferrari Testarossa to the latest electric Porsche Taycan and the blisteringly quick McLaren 720s. There is no race track on the island yet, leaving owners with the only option to travel to the nearby island of Sicily to compete in track-days.
Classic Car Hill-climbs are regularly organized on the island, as the country was under rule of the United Kingdom for many decades the scene is mostly filled with British classics and because of being so close geographically, Italian cars make an appearance too.
Malta is very different in every single way imaginable. It's unique atmosphere, the clear water, the beige colour covering the whole island, and the lovely little, but more precious classic car life we have makes the country definitely worth the visit or living in.
