PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — The Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum focuses on award-winning race cars, and now the museum is bringing two big wins of its own home to Philadelphia.
“Winning this award for the museum is like winning the Nobel Prize in the historic motoring world because they only give one a year,” said Dr. Fred Simeone, founder of the museum in Southwest Philadelphia.
“This should give us more relevance — if not the museum, then Philadelphia.”
Located in Philadelphia, PA, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum is one of the world’s greatest collections of racing sports cars. Through our theme, “The Spirit of Competition”, we celebrate the history and evolution of these magnificent machines.
Assembled over 50 years by Dr. Frederick Simeone, the Museum contains over 75 historically significant cars including Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Mercedes, Jaguar, Bentley, Porsche, Aston Martin, Corvette, Ford, and more.
