What Classic Cars Could You See This Year At The London Classic Car Show?
Gracing us with its presence, The London Classic Car Show is coming to the Excel Centre on the 14th-17th of February this year. Showcasing mechanical artistry that paved the way for technological revolution, this show celebrates the most influential classic cars. This phenomenal event enables avid car enthusiasts to congregate in one venue. Every year, the show’s atmosphere has been thick with excitement, fascination and appreciation and 2019’s show will be no exception. Known for designing the Aston Martin DB9 and the Jaguar I-PACE, Ian Callum will be receiving the London Classic Car Show Icon Award. As it will be the first time that his career defining work will be exhibited under one roof, the show itself is rightly renowned as an international celebration of pioneering design and craftsmanship.

This year you can delve into the history of aeronautical engineering, with an exhibition of vehicles that catapulted the desire for speed. One particular car with provenance is the 27-litre V12 Thomas Special ‘Babs’, that was bought by John Parry-Thomas himself and broke the land speed record of 171 mph in 1926. TV personality and engineer Edd China will be presenting the showcase of aero engines, so be sure to revel in this unique experience to get up close and personal with these brilliant machines.
We have a lot to celebrate this year with it being the 60th anniversary of the MINI and the 50th anniversary of the iconic motoring heist film ‘The Italian Job’. Subsequently, The London Classic Car Show will play tribute to its star cars; the Lamborghini Miura, The Aston Martin DB4 Volante and the Jaguar E-Type, just to name a few.
Hear the roar of charismatic engines as skilled drivers showcase iconic cars in the arena, making this an event that appeals to everyone. Furthermore, with trackside seating new to the show, you can enjoy the action from the front row. On the Grand Avenue you will be able to view a parade honouring the theme of ‘firsts’ displaying innovative concepts that were ahead of their time. The Bentley DFP 12/40 hp-2 litre model is an example of the types of car you will be able to appreciate during the parade.
