What’s on at the 2019 London Classic Car Show?
For 2019, the London Classic Car Show will be celebrating the career of Ian Callum, Jaguar’s director of design. Ian will be honoured with the London Classic Car Show Icon Award 2019, and there will be an exhibition of his work.

At the Grand Avenue, you’ll be able to see and hear an exciting range of cars. The theme changes every year, and for 2019, the London Classic Car Show is celebrating ‘Firsts’. That means you’ll be seeing cars that have pioneered new technologies, niches, or styles. There will also be a celebration of the Mini, as it’s 60-years-old this year. Happy Birthday Mini!

It’s also been 50 years since one of the most memorable movie car scenes: the classic Mini chase from ‘The Italian Job’. Surviving cars and reproductions from the movie will be reunited in a special exhibit, including the red, white and blue Mini Coopers everyone remembers. But Minis weren’t the only cars in the film. The exhibit will also feature: Lamborghini Miura, Aston Martin DB4 convertible, Jaguar E-Type Coupe and Roadster, Bedford Val Coach, and OM Furgonato Sicurezza ‘Bullion’ Van.

The birthday celebrations don’t stop there. French manufacturer Citroen is celebrating its 100th birthday, so there will be a centenary show highlighting the company’s evolution, from the vintage Type A through to modern classics.
Edd China – known for presenting Wheeler Dealers – will showcase a range of exceptional aero engine machines, including the 27-litre V12 Thomas Special ‘Babs’, 27-litre Hispano Suiza V12, 1921 V8 GN Curtiss, and 1926 GN Parker.

If you’re in the market for a new classic, Quentin Wilson and Classic Cars editor Phill Bell will be holding seminars throughout the show, sharing their expert market tips on the best classics to buy and enjoy now, and how to avoid making a purchase you may later regret.

The Supagard Theatre will host a series of talks featuring automotive legends, investment panels, celebrity guests, and classic car debates.

And on top of that, Car Club Square is the area for the UK’s leading car clubs, who have all bought models to show off; PopBangColour, who creates incredible custom paintjobs entirely out of remote-control cars, will showcase his ‘Mini-on-Mini’ creation; and the Historic Motorsport section will give visitors the opportunity to learn how to go from garage to grid.
