The London Classic Car Show is as a must attend for any discerning classic car owner, collector, expert or enthusiast.  This incredible gathering of vehicles from all corners of motoring lived up to its pre-event billing. Supercars, race cars, vintage cars and modern classics crammed the massive ExCel centre in the heart of London’s docklands.

Cars are not just restricted to being stationary throughout the show. “Grand Avenue” is a highway splitting the main exhibition hall in half, enabling the exhibitors to drive some of the world’s finest cars. This year’s Grand Avenue played host to a world cup of cars style competition. Show goers were asked to vote for the greatest car building nation, based on the cars rolling down the avenue.

It was fantastic to see, especially parked beside the Alpine! Colour is even better in person! It's gained a hefty price tag though! Renault 5 Turbo 1 » 4Star Classics

Moving exhibits really are the way forward for motor shows. Cars move. It's great to hear and see them go.
