Based in Assens, Denmark, the extraordinary car collection that is Strøjer Samlingen holds an outstanding number of classic design icons. DANISH™ swung by to talk to owner, Jørgen Strøjer Hansen, about his passion for old vehicles – Danish manufactured as well.
The lifelong desire for cars started with him buying an antique Italian car. This passion had an impact on Jørgen Strøjer’s father who was already collecting new cars at that time. Since then, Strøjer Samlingen has assembled more than 120 sports cars from the latest century.

DANISH™ also had the chance to speak with the Manager of the Strøjer Samlingen, Søren Ditlev Jensen, about how aerodynamics has influenced the design of classic versus modern cars. He also showcases the development of three Danish designed cars, all drawn by Henrik Fisker.
