Gallery Aaldering is a family owned business since 1975. Founder Nico Aaldering and his son Nick are responsible for operational and executive management. The company has been in Brummen since 1987 and started on the location where they currently have their second workshop and detailing shop.
Nico started very small, with only three employees. People who still work for the company today. The company grew rapidly and established a name for itself based on quality. In the nineties it was time for expansions after many years of selling Alfa Romeo, then Italian cars later on followed by British cars as well. At the end of 2000 Gallery Aaldering moved to the current premises at the Arnhemsestraat in Brummen. This showroom was build according to Nico’s idea and sketches and has a Neoclassical style to match the classic cars inside.

During this time Nick entered the company after finishing his studies and working for different automotive companies. Gallery Aaldering expanded and gained momentum with the decades of experience offered by Nico and the bright new ideas and progressive vision offered by Nick. The collection became more diverse with an important move upwards to higher segments. Gallery Aaldering has grown to become one of the largest classic car dealers in Europe. There are about 350 classic cars on display on four floors with a Grand Café and special rooms for business meetings.
As a family owned business Gallery Aaldering is proud of its history and traditions, but the future is just as important. At the heart of this all is the passion for classic automobiles. For that reason they participate in the most impressive classic car rally in the world, the Mille Miglia.
A deeply rooted love for cars. You will find this in both their genes and the identity of this family owned business.
Ladies and Gentlemen please take your seats as this is something truly special. This Bentley 3-litre, like many of his sort, has been fitted with a later 4.¼ litre engine. This Bentley 3-litre left the factory in 1925 as a “Speed” and is therefore, according to the Bentley lot, the best basis to build the most jolliest of Bentley 4.¼ litre homages.
In days gone past it wasn’t that easy to buy a car. These days you just step into your Bentley dealership and create the Continental, Flying Spur or Bentayga of your dreams, after which Bentley trundle off to start work on your behalf. In the past you ordered your chassis and drivetrain, took this to your favourite coachbuilder, who then followed your wishes for the bodywork and trim. This specific example has a Vandenplas 4-seater Tourer body. It still carries the same number plates it had in 1925; YL 4773.
It is an unbelievable car with fantastic provenance. Every owner since 1925 is known. The documents also show that in 1933 the car had already clocked up some 90,324 miles. That is pretty impressive considering the complete absence of motorways and the time it took to cover large distances, let alone an average 11,000 miles per annum… . Find out more
Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GT Compressore
We are proud to present one of Alfa`s most prized pre-war racing legends, the unique Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GT Compressore. Supplied from new to a Swedish Baron on the 10th September 1931. This car is the only 6C 1750 ever exported to Sweden and only one of a handful left today. This car comes with a fully and correctly documented history, including very old photographs. We can trace the car over the whole its lifetime. When new, it came as a two-door convertible with the bodywork by Garavini of Torino. The fourth and last owner bought the car 20 years ago. Since then it has been fully restored and mechanically overhauled. During the restoration in the 90`s the bodywork was re-styled as a Touring Spyder. The aluminium bodywork is totally handcrafted! The whole process has been carefully photographically documented. The stunning open Touring coachwork in combination with the powerful compressor engine is just fantastic! The bodywork has perfect alignment and snug fitting body panels. The finish, the interior and the very authentic details are all in a sublime condition. This 6C is not only a picture to see; mechanically it is in optimal working order too. Accepted worldwide, at any race, rally or concourse d’Elegance of importance, this is without doubt a truly unique car with a fantastic history! Find out more
Ferrari 365 GTC/4
Whilst the Ferrari 365GTC/4 appears quite similar to the modern Ferrari Daytona, it was actually a completely new design. The 4.4 litre V12 with four overhead camshafts is the same as in the Daytona. The 365GTC/4 was given a much longer nose allowing the carburettors to be placed sideways so as to shoe the V12 into the flatter nose. The Colombo V12 develops 340 Ps attached to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Just like the Daytona the GTC/4 has independent suspension on all four wheels. The rear height can be hydraulically adjusted. The GTC/4’s looks were extremely advanced for its day, with its typical 70’s wedge shape. The exotic exterior is enhanced by the flip-up headlights, the rubber front bumper and matt black accent on its rear end. In contrast to the Daytona the 365/4 was primarily designed with the flip-up headlights and therefore are integrated better as a whole compared to the Daytona. The six rear lights are also a striking design feature. Another special feature was the extensive choice one had in the finish; no less than 46 external colours and 10 different shades for inside… .

Maserati 3500GT Vignale Spyder
Between 1957 and 1964 Maserati built 1,976 3500GT’sCoupé with a Touring body. This convertible with a Vignale body on the other hand is much rarer with only 232 having been produced. Since this car first hit the roads in 1960 it has lost none of its beauty. What a gorgeous design!
This car has recently been resprayed in her original “Grigio Platino” finish. The quality of the respray and its current condition is fantastic. The bodywork is as straight as can be with lovely thin and correctly aligned panelwork. The hood provides a tight fit and only shows slight signs of wear. Furthermore, the brightwork and Borrani wheels are all very neat… . Find out more
Lamborghini Countach LP5000 Quattrovalvole
Countach is the Piedmontese way of saying amazing or gorgeous. A Piedmontese Lamborghini staff member kept on repeating the phrase so often during the car’s development that it stuck and was adopted as the car’s name. Ferruccio Lamborghini quickly realised the name was a very apt one for such a special car. Our car is a fully restored, matching numbers and colours Lamborghini Countach LP 5000 Quattrovalvole.
The Countach’s history has been told on numerous occasions and is full of this kind of anecdote. The Countach is a colourful car and wasn’t one to sit on the sidelines. We would like to share this specific car’s interesting provenance… . Find out more
