Over 300 classic cars will be presented to the public this weekend as part of the inaugural Classic & Sports Car - The London Show.
Among the models on display will be a Mercedes-Benz 300SL ‘Gullwing’, a 1973 Pontiac Trans Am and a Porsche 993 Carrera RS. Tickets can be bought here.
Some of the other notable classics on display at the show - including an Aston Martin DB4GT and a Ferrari 250GT California Spider - were featured as part of a line-up worth £18m to preview the show earlier this month.
Aston Martin is taking centre stage at the event, displaying its oldest surviving model - the 1921 A3. As well as the A3, which has recently undergone a three-year restoration, Aston Martin will be showcasing its newest models and unique examples from its historic collection, and celebrating its association with James Bond. The A3 is powered by a 1486cc monobloc engine and has been donated by the Aston Martin Heritage Trust.
Taking place from 30 October to 1 November, the event is being supported by private collectors, classic car dealers and motor manufacturers.
The show is timed to coincide with a number of classic motoring events taking place in the capital, including the London to Brighton veteran car run, the Regent Street motor show and the Bonhams veteran car auction.
Elliott said: “Classic & Sports Car - The London Show is the essence of our magazine written large on the international stage, and broadcast from one of London’s most dramatic venues.
"We are putting everything we know about classic cars into this show – and as a result it’ll be a must-attend event. At Classic & Sports Car, passion counts for everything, so whether you’re one of the world’s richest collectors, a classic car dealer or simply a classic car enthusiast, you’ll be warmly welcomed at Alexandra Palace.”
Among the famous faces lending support to the show is Sir Stirling Moss OBE, who said: “To me, London is the centre of the world and it is essential that it has a top-quality classic car show. Alexandra Palace is the perfect venue and, with Classic & Sports Car being the world leader in its field, it is an event people should definitely add to their diaries.”
Racing legend John Surtees added: “With events such as Goodwood, Britain has established itself as the centre of the classic car world. The capital, although rich in world-beating veteran events, has so far been starved of a fixture showcasing post-war cars that reflects its status. Now it’s getting one.”
A selection of the best classic car dealers in the world have been confirmed as exhibitors at the show.
Classics from manufacturers such as Jaguar, Rolls-Royce and Bentley will be on display at the event. The line-up of dealers that will be exhibiting includes JD Classics, Hexagon Classics, Frank Dale & Stepsons, New Forest Classic Cars, Maranello Classic Parts, Graypaul Classic Cars and DD Classics.
These dealers are all set to bring several models from their stock, with JD Classics promising to display a high number of cars. It has sold cars from manufacturers such as Aston Martin and Ferrari in the past, and JD Classics owner Derek Hood said of the event: “We’re very excited to be involved in Classic & Sports Car – The London Show. Alexandra Palace is a sensational location for this event. Rest assured we will more than match its drama with a display of the finest historic cars.”
