London Classic Car Show Revs Up For A Ferrari Spectacular In 2017

  • Highlights to include a celebration of 70 years of Ferrari road cars
  • The Grand Avenue returns to provide thrilling classic action
  • Tickets now on sale, with discounts available to on-line buyers
  • Diary date: 2017 London Classic Car Show: 23-26 February

The 2017 London Classic Car Show moves into its third year with a host of spectacular features guaranteed to excite motoring enthusiasts of all ages and interests.

Returning to ExCeL London, the 2017 show will be held on 23-26 February and will build on the record 33,000 visitors who visited the 2016 event.

Among the new features planned is a celebration marking 70 years of Ferrari road cars while a display focusing on the life and work of a top motoring personality will be another highlight: previous shows have turned the spotlight on Red Bull designer Adrian Newey and Gordon Murray and the McLaren F1.

Popular features such as The Grand Avenue and Car Club Square will return, bigger and better than ever. The Grand Avenue, a roadway running through the centre of the show, allows visitors to see and hear their favourite classics in action. This time, The Grand Avenue will have an open paddock allowing visitors to get even closer to the cars.

Introduced in 2016, Car Club Square had displays from leading one-make classic car clubs and proved an instant hit. For 2017, more clubs will be invited to display a range of models, while top classic dealers will be on hand with mouth-watering machinery for sale.

As in previous years, The London Classic Car Show will attract a large number of celebrities from the motoring world over the four days of the event. Previous guests include: James May, Chris Evans, David Coulthard, Jenson Button, Sir Stirling Moss, Ari Vatanen, Gordon Murray, James Martin and Jodie Kidd. Expect plenty more big names in 2017.

“Although only in its third year, the London Classic Car Show has already established itself as the classic car show by which all others are judged. We have introduced many innovative features and have more exciting plans for 2017,” said event director Bas Bungish.

Tickets to the London Classic Car Show 2017 are now available from the show website – thelondonclassiccarshow.co.uk – and start at £24 for single adult entry (£27 on the door on the day).
