It’s the final countdown to an even bigger and more glittering London Classic Car Show 2018 (15-18 February). Now gearing up for its fourth year, the capital’s biggest car celebration has expanded again to now fill the complete South Hall at ExCeL London, the city’s premier exhibition venue.
Visitors will be treated to huge, eye-catching displays featuring more than 700 of the world’s finest classic cars, many offered for sale by the country’s top specialist dealers as well as a duo of global new car launches by Lister and Morgan, two of the most iconic marques in motoring history.
Highlights this year also include a special collection of Nigel Mansell’s racing cars plus a rogue’s gallery of getaway cars curated by Philip Glenister, aka DCI Gene Hunt from the television series Life on Mars and its sequel Ashes to Ashes. Glenister will be at show on Saturday followed by Mansell on Sunday.
While no stranger to high profile personalities, the real secret to the London Classic Car Show’s spiralling success is its ground-breaking all-action Grand Avenue. In effect, the central Grand Avenue is a car-themed cat-walk running through the very centre of ExCeL, along which some of the world’s greatest classic road and competition cars are driven. This year’s eye-catching Grand Avenue parades focuses on ‘Specials’, a mouth-watering collection of 60 unique street and competition cars renowned for their rarity, curiousity and desirability.
Maximising its growth, this year’s London Classic Car Show also includes an enlarged Car Club Square, a bigger autojumble and a second Coys auction – this time for automotive memorabilia – on Sunday.
Adding extra value, tickets also give access to Historic Motorsport International, a sister show celebrating the UK’s leading global position in retro racing and rallying.
