Date: 05 November, 2016
Location: Regent Street, London
London’s famous shopping street will be filled bumper to bumper with classic and innovative vehicles as the UK’s largest free motor show returns.
Hundreds of dazzling vehicles celebrating 125 years of motoring history will be on display on November 5.
Whether you’re passionate about cars, a distracted shopper or want something fun to do with your family, you can enjoy a huge collection of cars and motorbikes that date from pre-1905 to the present day and beyond. And the show wouldn’t be complete without live music and dance performances.
City runarounds of the future
A big part of the show will concentrate on the latest low-emission technologies. Several car manufacturers will be keen to show off their city-friendly low and zero-emission eco-machines.
There will be opportunities for you to take a short test drive in an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle, such as Renault’s Twizy and Zoe cars.
Transport for London will also be showing how far the capital has come in providing clean public transport. A new electric bus will be on display alongside one of its oldest buses so you can compare and contrast.
Don’t leave without…

• Checking out the veteran car zone: See 100 of the historic cars taking part in the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run the day after the show on November 6
• Enjoy racing thrills: For £5, you can sit in the driving seat of the Ariel Atom, one of the fastest accelerating cars in the world, capable of reaching 100mph in 6.86 seconds
