The D'Costas  (L to R) : Clyde, Tessy, Deena & Neil

Autofest City is India's only double-national award winner and definitely the world's best displayed collection of authentic scale models. The collection specializes in historically important automobiles of leading international marques. On display are licenced replicas, comprising many limited editions, hand-built and kit-assembled models tracing the history of automobiles for almost 500 years!

Autofest City is a private hobby of brothers Clyde & Neil D'Costa launched in 1996. The collection is located in two dedicated buildings with a total display area of approximately 1,900 square feet, adjacent to their home. 


Autofest City is the only scale model collection in the world to display life-size, working replicas of the 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen, the 1896 Ford Quadricycle and a real 1996 Mercedes-Benz E250D (W124). The two replicas and  the car hold centre-stage at the museum.

The collection has never been about collecting in numbers but instead built over the years with a strong focus and with care. Scale 18 and 24 models are displayed under hand-crafted glass display cases. Each model has its own technical data sheet highlighting specific points of importance, photographs of its real counterpart, a photograph of the founder/designer, a monogram replica, a flag of the country of origin, and any other item of human interest. This makes browsing through the collection very informative and interesting even to someone who may not be an automobile enthusiast.​​
Scale 40 & 43 models are displayed with street diorama in a 20ft, 4-level showcase. Diorama is hand-crafted by the brothers and ranges from automobile dealerships to taverns and green spaces.
Visitors from all around the world have been unanimous in declaring that Autofest City has the most comprehensive displays for scale models ever seen in a collection.
