The London Motor Show returned to the capital with over 150 cars on display. With some some of the most exclusive brands taking part including the likes of Lamborghini. It may not be on par with the Geneva or Frankfurt Motor Shows but the London Motor Show saw record crowds turn out to see some of the greatest brands in the automotive industry.
Over 10,000 people attended the show at Battersea Park on Saturday which was opened by Royal, Prince Michael of Kent on Thursday. Attended by the usual array of celebrities including petrol heads Tiff Needell, Jodie Kidd and The Former Stig Ben Collins. There was a number of exclusive brands that were at this years show including some more established British brands such as Caterham and Morgan.
Despite having a variety of vehicles including many Classic Motors the show also has a more modern twist. Paul Wallace, Founder of the Supercars of London brand and YouTube legend also attended the show. Famous for his YouTube channel dedicated to Fast Cars, Paul Wallace managed to make the brand go viral through a few simple pictures and videos of cars he saw around London. Now a large successful brand in it’s own right, SOL was at the show to answer questions.
In contrast to the early days of the London Motor Show things are really coming along as there appears to be a very contrast between the type of cars on show. Whether classic, modern, supercar, tuned or concept, the show had them all. Unlike the larger shows the displays were arranged by many of the local franchisees such as HR Owen and Ancaster to say a few. This meant visitors to the show also had the opportunity to test drive a few of the cars that were on display.
The London Motor Show managed to deliver an exceptional exhibition to the public and deserved the crowds that it managed to achieve over the 4 days. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come as we all feel at Grand Torque that Britain deserves it’s own International Motor Show.
