If you are going to London England early in January, you might want to check out this new event; – the London Classic Car Show, being held at the ExCeL Centre in London’s Docklands from January 8-11, 2015.  They will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Citroën DS.  The homage to the DS and its sibling the ID (pronounced Idée, French for Idea) will include a number of examples including variations of the sedan, the Break or Safari estate car and the convertible or décapotable.

A centrepiece to the debut London Classic Car Show will be a special ‘street’ feature – called the  “Grand Avenue – Up and Down” in which the show’s 100 top cars will be driven.  Organizers hope it will give visitors the chance not just to gaze at classic cars at rest, but also to see and hear them in action.

“The Grand Avenue will add an extra dimension to the new London Classic Car Show,” says Bas Bungish, Event Director, Brand Events.

“Part of the appeal of a classic Ferrari is the snarl of its V12 engine while the V8 rumble from an American muscle car is music to the ears of every enthusiast.  In bringing some of the world’s greatest cars to life, the London Classic Car Show will ensure that ExCeL will echo to these aural treats.”

The London Classic Car Show 2015 is the latest creation from Brand Events, the company behind all-action car shows like Top Gear Live.  Tickets are now available at www.thelondonclassiccarshow.co.uk where early bird discounts reduce the on-the-door standard entry price from £25 to just £22.50.
