Elegant Shanghai with Classic Heritage
The long-established automobile culture originated in Europe and America. The world famous Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is a sacred place for car worshippers the world over, while Britain’s Goodwood Revival is a celebrated carnival of cars attended by young and old in period costume. With the SSC, Shanghai takes its place among those revered automotive events.

The theme of the first SSC Super Festival in 2019 is "Shen" – the epitome of elegant and classical heritage. The SSC will ooze class in keeping with the status of Shanghai as a world-class destination of style for global brands.
Recently, a 1970 Shanghai brand SH760 classic car and street snaps of star guests from the Shanghai Automobile Museum opened the prelude of SSC. In 1975, Shanghai Automobile Manufacturing Factory formed the capacity to produce 5,000 cars per year, making the SH760 the first large-scale car in China. It is now held as an iconic forerunner to today’s Chinese-produced automobiles.
Landmark on the Bund and Urban Life
Location is key! As such, SSC has partnered with Shanghai Port to stage the event in 2019 at the international cruise terminal in the North Bund.
The exhibition hall facing the Huangpu River is across the river from the landmark of Shanghai city, the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and the Lujiazui Center in Pudong. It is also adjacent to the Bund World Architecture Complex in Puxi, forming the "Golden Triangle" for an incredible River view.
From May to June 2019, SSC will be held for 32 days, spanning spring and summer. It is expected that 200,000 visitors will be able to enjoy not only the classic car artworks at the 5,000 square-meter indoor exhibition, but also the beautiful scenery on both sides of the Huangpu River, day and night.
In addition to the eye-catching static exhibition, the music plaza, open green space and multi-function exhibition hall attached to the exhibition will feature live performances, parties and forums with different themes each week.
There will be a raft of month-long activities from June 1 which will embrace Children's Day, Dragon Boat Festival holiday and Father’s Day.
Visitors are invited at their leisure to explore automobile culture and art, enjoy a romantic afternoon tea, choose a chic official souvenir, or enjoy a cocktail party in the VIP area. SSC Sheng Hui is not only a car culture exhibition, but a mulitfaceted experience that invites an elegant and demure way of life.
The main picture featured on the SSC poster is the oil painting "Magic Capital Vera" created by Li Zili, a Shanghai painter who resides in Paris, France. Li Zili, the pioneer and leader of the post-Impressionist contemporary school, is the winner of the UNESCO Lifelong Achievement Award for Art.
