Three of the six upper floors of the complex covering 5,000 m2 are dedicated to the motor museum, and house a collection of 120 historic cars on a rotating basis from amongst the founders’ collection of over 300 cars. The helix-shaped entrance leads up to the main museum hall, and exhibits a collection of 72 wheels from 300 BC through the 1970s which can be viewed free of charge.
