NOW in its sixth year, and having secured a reputation as one of the world's leading classic car events, the 2015 Motorclassica in Melbourne displayed a stunning variety of rare and collectable machinery.

Held at the heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building, over 500 vehicles were on display inside and outside the building. 

Regarded as Australia's premier event for rare and exotic, historic, vintage, veteran, classic and collectible cars and motorcycles, 2015 celebrated 50 years of the supercar, Ferrari Dino, Shelby Mustang and the Bugatti Club Australia, and 70 years of MV Agusta.

Here's a gallery of some of the treats on display.
