For Cars Sake!


I do love cars, it’s no secret, but it still fascinates me how many other people also share this love.  Every few weeks a new car is launched into South Africa and we lap them up. Car magazines continue to take up ample space on supermarket shelves and how many of us don’t watch Top Gear?  It’s ludicrous how loved the car still is.

Even the older cars are still as much loved if not more loved than when they were first launched. We call them classics, and thousands of them grace the roads especially on weekends when the owners bring out their toy to show off and let the whole country ogle at the beauty of it. Let’s face it: everyone loves a Classic and Montecasino knows this.

In the month of August all car-lovers will get a chance to get up close and personal with a few extraordinary pieces of automotive technology. From the brain of Carroll Shelby, the annual celebration of the V8 AC Cobra takes place on 18 August on the Montecasino Outdoor Piazza. Introducing… Cobra Day!  An annual favourite where car fans can come and check out up to 80 Cobra’s, all in pristine condition. They’re beautiful!

One week later you can make your way back to the Piazza to check out one of SA’s most loved cars when we host BMW Concours day. It’s the first time Montecasino partners with the BMW Car Club to host this event and it’s got to be a great show day with hundreds of BMW’s on property. Whether you’re into the old or the new, the M Power cars or the classics, you’ll get a taste of them all on 25 August.


Here’s the cherry on bonnet; these events are free.
