40 all-time greats heading for the London Classic Car Show
The 40 classics selected range from the dawn of the motor car (including the earliest Lagonda) right the way through to the relatively modern era, with classics such as the Jaguar XJ220 and Bugatti EB110 supercars. The event also covers the ‘Golden Era’ (with a Lancia B24 Spider and the ex-James Coburn Ferrari Cal’ Spider) and the Group B era (Audi quattro, Lancia Delta S4, Ferrari 288 GTO and Porsche 959).

Elsewhere, you’ll find homages to racing heroes past and present – Sir Stirling Moss, Tazio Nuvolari and Ayrton Senna included – as well as displays dedicated to Le Mans prototypes, Maserati’s centenary, and 60 years of the Citroën DS. Eagle E-Types has the largest stand on the show with no fewer than eight cars on display, including the Speedster and Low-Drag GT. Also in attendance will be JD Classics, Nicholas Mee & Co., Hexagon Classics, Speedmaster, DD Classics, Duncan Hamilton, Graeme Hunt, Joe Macari and Burkhard Wendt Kunsthandel, as well as the retail operations of Silverstone Auctions and Coys. Many of the cars on display will be paraded along the Grand Avenue, the motoring equivalent of the London Fashion Week catwalk.
