Where the Euro is strong

By In-House Staff / Web
October 8, 2009

The visit to Greece to show off the most recent production vehicles has proven to be a hit. XLVelocity has gathered one of the largest crowds this century according to past show participants. According to Rik Holliday, co-founder of XLVelocity, “ I feel the American Muscle car of the 60’s, particularly Shelby’s, are always a strong draw and also feel the strong Euro has a lot to do with spending”. Currently the Euro is trading at 1.49 to the U.S. Dollar which makes purchasing goods in the United States particularly attractive.

Nicolas Papandreou, a Greek car collector and owner of a large dry shipping company commented on the 1969 Shelby continuations. “I have always been attracted to American Muscle cars and this GT550 is a beautiful machine that drive like no other car I own. I’m here to tell you that I think my neck popped when I let out clutch. It’s incredible this machine of a car. I can’t wait to try against my Ferrari and Lambo’s”. Mr. Papandreou has over 225 cars in his collection, of which thirty cars are American made ranging from Mustangs, Corvettes, and Mopars. “Of all the American made cars I have, nothing drives like this. I say nothing”.

XLVelocity will be showing and demonstrating their 1969 Shelby GT550 until 11 October 2009 at the N.J.V Conference Center.
