The Regent Street Motor Show Preview

The annual Regent Street Motor Show returns to London on Saturday 1st November. Hundreds of classic cars will be on display to Londoners for free and is certainly not to be missed.

Started in 2005, the display of vehicles will stretch from Piccadilly Circus to Oxford Circus, featuring over 100 veteran cars. Amongst the veterans, a term for all pre-1905 vehicles, is a steam powered 1902 Toledo. Built in the United States by the American bicycle company 112 years ago, the vintage veteran hopes to scoop the prize for winner of the Concours d’Elegence.

All veteran vehicles on display will also complete a gruelling 60 mile trek from London to Brighton, a tiring journey for cars aged beyond their first centenary.

Besides the veteran display, there will be many exhibitors featuring the likes of family cars, performance vehicles, race cars and eco friendly models.

Having attracted over 400,000 visitors last year, the Regent Street Motor Show is likely to expand to even greater heights in 2014. So be sure to get there early to avoid disappointment.

Entry is free and open for everyone to enjoy. So be sure to take friends and family and enjoy a superb display of motoring history. For more details, please visit their website.
