2016 London Classic Car Show: The amazing cars and stars at the Excel Classic and Performance Car

Take a look at some of the amazing cars and stars in attendance at the London Excel this weekend!


Although only in its second year, the calibre of the cars, guests and features at the 2016 London Classic Car Show is simply outstanding. Running from 18-21 February at the London Excel, special guests Gordon Murray and Ari Vatanen officially opened the show on Thursday at 3.00. Later in the evening Suzi Perry interviewed a number of special guests, including Jensen Button, Bruno Senna, Jodie Kidd, Johnny Smith and Tom Ford.

The Grand Avenue is the central attraction, and this year sees the six big car-producing nations battle it out for the public’s affection, with four cars representing each country. This aspect of the show is popular, because it gives show visitors a chance to hear and see the cars in action.
