Named for Argentina’s most famous racing driver, the Museo del Automovilismo Juan Manuel Fangio, one of the country’s finest, preserves a multimillion-dollar collection of classic and racing cars in Fangio’s birthplace of Balcarce, 70km northwest of Mar del Plata. The museum stresses the worldwide exploits of Fangio and his contemporaries, but also makes an effort to put automotive history into a global context.
