All-new car show, open until Sunday 11 January, plays host to a range of exhibitions and a selection of high-end classics and specialists

The inaugural London Classic Car Show, which is taking place at the ExCeL centre in London's Docklands, will be open to the public until Sunday 11 January.

Event director Bas Bungish said: “The capital hasn’t even had a traditional classic car show for far too many years – and it’s never had a event like the London Classic Car Show."

A wide range of classic cars and supercars are on display, including one of the earliest Series 1 Land Rovers and a Porsche 959 – a twin-turbocharged homologation special that was once the world's fastest production supercar.

Other highlights include James May's 13 most significant cars, a live parade section, a homage to the career of Red Bull designer Adrian Newey, a celebration of 100 years of Maserati and myriad historic race cars.

A selection of modern cars also feature, including a Citroën DS3 – as part of the DS brand's 60th anniversary - and the indomitable LaFerrari.

Tickets cost £25 on the door, or are offered online for £22. Family and group deals are also available, as are premium packages.

"It’s the perfect way for every petrolhead to start the New Year, but it’s not just for the enthusiast; there’s something here for everyone,” added Bungish.

LaFerrari was one of the most anticipated cars of 2014

The Enzo’s successor is finally here. The LaFerrari costs over £1 million and has a 950bhp hybrid V12, but just how good is it? Steve Sutcliffe straps in to see

There are some great looking cars here and it would be nice to be able to see bigger versions of the pictures like we could before.

....but I really cant be bothered to travel all the way to the far side of London. Selfish I know, but Goodwood is far closer so that's my annual pilgrimage. Looks good...from what you can ACTUALLY see in the miniscule photo's. Still no reaction to all our complaints about this from Haymarket...clearly don't give a damn!

Yeah I got that message too, I think the message should read "•Oops, looks like this request tried to create an infinite loop. We do not allow such things here. We are an UNprofessional website!"

I tried right clicking on the image (am using windows 7) and then viewing image. Can get some of the images a bit bigger that way. Strangely the images seem to scaled down in size to fit the page, which is bad practice.

The way photos are displayed now is perfect, a vast improvement over the little pop up window that was used previously.

I use Chrome on Windows 8 and the way the pictures are displayed is terrible.

    The Audi Q2 is the German brand’s smallest SUV yet. Can it impress in production guise on European roads?

    The Ford S-Max Vignale is the company's premium executive express. Can it really be worth the extra over the standard S-Max?
  • Volkswagen Scirocco GTS

    Still a really fun and likeable coupé but the extra power doesn't justify the VW Scirocco GTS's high price

    Fresh from testing it abroad, we've just got our hands on the Ford Fiesta ST200 for a blat on UK roads

    Alpina's appealing BMW M4 alternative arrives in convertible form with a more relaxed nature than BMW's M car but still impressive performance and handling
