Supermodels set for London Classic Car Show

Published 21 November 2014

Forty handpicked supermodels will be strutting their stuff on the London catwalk in January, but they won’t be at a fashion show. These are rare and exotic classic cars – and they’ll be on show at the brand new London Classic Car Show at Excel.

The chosen few will range from a 1904 Lagonda Tricar to the ex-James Hunt McLaren M23 via a stunning Lancia Stratos. Also on parade at the event’s ‘Grand Avenue’ (think of it as a motorized catwalk) will be the Maserati 250F that Stirling Moss drove to victory in the 1956 Monaco GP, the ex-Elio de Angelis Lotus 87B and a Jaguar C-type, originally owned by five-times Formula One world champion, Juan Manuel Fangio.

Visitors at the event, held over January 8-11, will also get to enjoy a 1920 Jaguar SS1 in action alongside a 1924 Bugatti, while other significant cars include a 1948 Land Rover (one of the first made), plus a pre-production Range Rover from the 1970s.

As if that wasn’t enough, there’ll be a ‘gullwing’ Mercedes 300SL, a 1957 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa and a Lamborghini Muira S from the 1960s.

With a line up like that, you can see why we’re expecting great things from the show, especially as it’s being produce by the team behind Top Gear Live and CarFest.

Tickets are now available from the show website – www.thelondonclassiccarshow.co.uk – where early bird discounts reduce the on-the-door standard entry price from £25 to £22.
