Mazda Museum Opens In Germany

The first Mazda museum in Europe – and the only one outside Japan – opens this weekend in Augsburg, Germany.

Frey’s Mazda Classic Car Museum, a project from local Mazda dealer Auto Frey with the support of Mazda Germany, charts the carmaker's almost 100 year history.

The new Mazda museum will house 45 vehicles – vintage Mazdas officially sold in Europe, as well as models only available elsewhere, including a number of rarities from the Frey family’s extensive private collection.

The facility, located in a refurbished Augsburg tram depot dating from 1897, is also equipped with an expansive event area, restaurant facilities and a gift shop.

“Uniquely impressive, the first Mazda museum outside Japan represents a dream come true for the Frey family to share with the public its one-of-a-kind collection of vintage Mazdas from around the world,” commented Mazda Motor Corporation Executive Vice President Akira Marumoto.

Some of the models on display include a 1967 Mazda Cosmo Sport, 1969 Mazda Luce RX87 and 1992 Mazda RX-7, the top-selling rotary powered model in history.

Other highlights include a 1960 Mazda R360, the company’s first mass-produced passenger car, a 1962 Mazda K360 three-wheeled light truck, a 1966 Mazda Familia 1000 coupé, a 1976 Mazda 616, the first model officially offered in Germany starting in 1973, and the Mazda AZ-1, a mid-engined lightweight sports car from 1992.

The selection will change continually, too, with additional gems from the Frey’s collection of 120-plus vehicles destined for rotation into the exhibit.

Operators also hope the venue will become a hub for vintage Mazda club meetings and classic car events in general.
