Experts for your Passion

The Classic Center Switzerland is a stylish meeting place for enthusiasts and collectors of historic and classic vehicles.

Classic cars fascinate young and old and attract admiring glances wherever they appear. Sharing this enthusiasm, Emil Frey Ltd established Emil Frey Classics Ltd in Safenwil, the site of the company’s logistics hub. There, the Classic Center Switzerland is housed in a carefully renovated former textile factory and a new extension, built in the same style.

Automotive history on three floors

The car enthusiasts of Emil Frey Ltd have been collecting historically interesting vehicles for decades.

The exhibition focuses on collector vehicles, mainly of English and Japanese origin, from the post-war period to the 1980s. You can admire design icons, such as the Jaguar E-Type, the Toyota 2000 GT and the Aston Martin DB4 Vantage. The Classic Car Museum is a rewarding destination for anyone who wants to experience automotive history up close.
