“TRANSPARENCY” Exhibition – Hellenic Motor Museum

Under the patronage of UNESCO on the occasion of celebrating World Motoring Heritage Year – FIVA 2016 
The permanent exhibition, is a creation of the founder of the Hellenic Motor Museum, Mr. Theodoros Charagionis; it aspires to give the possibility to museum’s visitors to familiarize with the technology of a car and the different kinds of transmission as a determining factor for better driving behavior and consequently reduced car accidents.
The exhibition showcases five “transparent” cars and four educational models of the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s that help the inquisitive visitor understand the actual operation of engines. These models are a Dodge ¾ Light Truck SWB (1940-45), a Lancia Flavia Convertibile (1964), a Bond Equipe Gt 4S (1967), a Porsche 912 (1968) and a Lotus Europa Twin Cam Special (1974), 
This exhibition has a dual purpose, as it aspires to show, in a subtle way, the need for “transparency” in various sectors of the Greek society – a very useful message to the younger visitors.
The inauguration coincides with the celebration of the 50 years’ anniversary of FIVA 50, and the declaration of 2016 as “World Motoring Heritage Year”, hence the event is under UNESCO, FIVA and FILPA patronage.
In the presence of Messrs. George Kaminis – Athens Mayor, Constantinos Bakouris – President of the Greek branch of “Transparency International” Organization and Dimitrios Vernardakis – President of FILPA, the new permanent exhibition “TRANSPARENCY” of Hellenic Motor Museum was inaugurated on June 8th 2016.
