Inaugural Grand Basel took place 6 to 9 September 2018 in Basel. It gave an opportunity to start a discourse, not just about the automobile, but about everything that goes together with the automobile. There is art that is inspired by cars, music that is inspired by cars and even buildings that are inspired by cars. These are just some of the reasons that the show was supported by a unique independent advisory board, which brought together a wealth of cultural perspectives for this one-of-a-kind show.

The show's exhibits were carefully selected to 100 cars, spread over a total show space of 32,000 sqm. One of the special features in Basel were six frames that displayed six individually-curated cars selected by each member of the advisory board. While the rest of the show represented a ‘hive mind’ of cultural consideration, these six exhibits were showcasing the personal thoughts of each connoisseur.
