Franschhoek Motor Museum: Western Cape – South Africa

November 27th, 2012 by Stu

Tucked away amid countless wine farms and sprawling green pastures in the quaint South African town of Franschhoek is a world class museum boasting some 220 vehicles that span more than a century of manufacture. The prized collection, started in the mid 70s by the late Dr Anton Rupert, is quite easy to miss but well worth searching for along the dusty country road to which it’s situated. Among the many jewels are some seriously rare breeds of road car, race car, and cycle [motorized and otherwise]. All of the major nations are represented, and all of the marquee brands are present and accounted for. From a pre-war Isotta Fraschini to a luscious Jaguar D-Type to an utterly exotic McLaren F1, this tribute to 2 and 4-wheeled enthusiasm will easily swallow 4 hours of your day. Even better, you can do it with a glass of fine South African vino in your hand. What could be better than that?
