The 2017 London Classic Car Show will be celebrating the 70th anniversary of Ferrari road cars.
Returning to ExCeL London, the 2017 show will be held on February 23-26 and will build on the record 33,000 visitors who visited the 2016 event. As well as a collection of Ferraris, there will also be a display focusing on the life and work of a top motoring personality, previous shows have turned the spotlight on Red Bull designer Adrian Newey and Gordon Murray who developed the McLaren F1 road car.
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 have included James May, David Coulthard, Jenson Button, Sir Stirling Moss, Ari Vatanen, James Martin and Jodie Kidd. Expect plenty more big names in 2017.
