Motoring merriment on Regent Street

Final plans are in hand for the 2019 edition of what is claimed to be the UK’s biggest free-to-view car-themed spectacle, the Regent Street Motor Show (below), taking place in London’s prestigious shopping area on 2 November.

Teaming up with Illinois Route 66 for the third year in succession, the 2019 event – expected to draw up to 500,000 visitors – will also serve as one of the main attractions marking Regent Street’s 200th anniversary.

As tradition dictates, the show will be staged on the eve of the Bonhams London-to-Brighton veteran car run and will feature a mixture of motoring’s past, present and future.

More than 100 pre-1905 automobiles will take part in the annual veteran car concours d’elegance before heading off on the route to Brighton at first light the following morning.

At the other end of the spectrum, the motor show will provide a glimpse into the next 200 years of powered personal transportation with displays of futuristic vehicles, many propelled by the latest innovative generation of low-carbon drivetrains.

Royal Automobile Club chairman Ben Cussons said: “Putting the spotlight on the timeline of the automobile, the Regent Street Motor Show is now one of this country’s top motoring spectacles and never fails to capture the imagination.”
