Ten vehicles that once belonged to Greece’s former royal family, were transferred to a new storage area to undergo further restorations.
The antiques, aged between 55 and 82 years, are considered exceptional examples of luxury cars of the 20th century, They have historic significance as they are associated both with members of the former royal family and international personalities, as well as important moments in Modern Greek history.
According to the Minister of Culture and Sports Lina Mendoni, “the vehicles of the former Royal Family are now in their new storage area, with appropriate storage conditions, safety and protection, in order to better assess their conservation status and continue the necessary work.”
“The Maintenance Department will continue the detailed documentation of their maintenance status, and will investigate the construction materials, their peculiarities for corrosion, their further protection and promotion,” she added.
The vehicles, eight cars and two electric tricycles, had recently undergone restoration work to remove dirt and dust after a long period of immobility on the premises of the former royal estate at Tatoi, northern Athens.
