Țiriac Collection, the only private car and motorcycle gallery in Romania open to the public, has created a series of unique presentation materials featuring 9 exclusive models from Mr. Ion Tiriac’s personal collection. The materials will be used to launch the TikTok account of the car gallery, which will then be continued on other social media channels such as Instagram, YouTube or Facebook. The dedicated content will be available starting from August.
The aim of the project is to promote in an attractive way, on an international level, the cultural-educational value of the Țiriac Collection gallery to the target groups that use each social media platform separately and to unleash the performances of the cars from the collection on one of the most emblematic national and international roads – Transfăgărășan.
With this occasion, nine exceptional vehicles from the Țiriac Collection gallery took part in the filming procedures on this spectacular track, such as: 2011 Mercedes-Benz SRL Stirling Moss, 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari, 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder, 2017 Porsche 911 GT2 RSII, Mercedes- 2017 Maybach G 650 Landaulet, 2019 Ferrari 812 Superfast, 2020 Ferrari Monza SP2 (F176) and 1976 Cadillac Eldorado.
