The London Classic Car Show returns to the ExCeL London on the 14th February 2019. This year, celebrations will be centred around the career of Ian Callum – the Director of Design at Jaguar. A special award will be handed to Ian in the form of ‘The London Classic Car Show Icon Award 2019’ and there will also be an exhibition of his work for visitors to view.
2019 will see the London Classic Car Show showcase the theme of ‘Firsts’. This means the Grand Avenue will be brimming with cars that have evolved new technologies, styles and those that brought a designer’s name acclaim. There will also be a celebration of the 60th anniversary of Mini.
The London Classic Car Show will look back through history at the racers who harnessed aeronautical engineering to beat the current speeds achieved by other motorists of the period. There will be an array of aero engine cars from this time, with their unmissable Edwardian designs and mammoth engines they are hard to mistake, and this is a great opportunity to see one up close.
One of the most iconic motoring movies, The Italian Job, was made popular by the use of the classic Minis throughout the film. To celebrate 50 years of the film, the London Classic Car Show will pay tribute with an impressive line-up of the star cars featured in the film. This will include the Aston Martin DB4 Volante, the Lamborghini Miura, Jaguar E-type, Land Rover, Harrington Legionnaire as well as the red, white and blue Mini Coopers.
The Supagard Theatre returns by popular demand for 2019. Famous faces that have graced the stage in the past few years include Quentin Willson, Vicki Butler-Henderson, Derek Bell, Jonny Smith, Stirling Moss and Jacky Ickx, though of course not a complete list! This year promises to be better than ever and include plenty of industry experts taking to the stage and discuss anything and everything automotive.
We will be based on Stand E130 and will be showcasing a special barn find red 1964 Jaguar E-Type Series (1 3.8 litre), plus a spectacular 1961 Flat Floor Jaguar E-Type (3.8 FHC).
