Cartis, member of FFVE

I am pleased to announce that the FFVE (Fédération des véhicules d'époque) has validated our membership for August 2021!

As a member, we wish to contribute to the promotion and protection of the historical heritage that the classic car represents alongside the FFVE.

What would the world of classic cars be without the Fédération des Véhicules d'Epoque (FFVE), the faithful guardian of the history of classic vehicles?

The FFVE, a public utility association, has been working since its creation in 1957 to preserve classic cars and their economic fabric, which today represents more than 22,000 jobs in France.

The FFVE is present at the main events organised throughout France (in particular Rétromobile) and its 40 regional delegates ensure direct local contact with clubs, professionals and collectors. Today, the FFVE acts through numerous actions such as :

  • The promotion and transmission of knowledge by contributing to the financing of professional qualification certificates in the bodywork and mechanical trades, Participation in the European Heritage Days under the aegis of the Ministry of Culture,
  • The relaunch of the Concours d'Elegance, which are incomparable moments of sharing between collectors and the general public,
  • The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from vintage cars by planting a tree in France for each certificate issued.

To date, forty hectares of forest are regenerated every year in partnership with Fransylva. Just like the FFVE, Cartis is committed to eco-responsible actions such as participating in the reconstruction of wetlands essential to the development of new ecosystems or the planting and sustainable management of trees offered to each of our customers.

For our first participation alongside the FFVE, we will be present with our 1961 Jaguar MK2 at the European Heritage Days on Saturday 18 September at the Château de Groussay for the "Art Automobile" event organised by Jean-Marc Thévenet.

This event will bring together a hundred or so classic vehicles from the early 20th century to the 1960s. The "Art Automobile" exhibition could not exist without the conviction of the Patrimoine Aventure association, chaired by Jean-Claude Bailly le Roch, who has been responsible for the conservation of the park and the Château de Groussay for the past eight years.
