NEW! Market Makers
The London Classic Car Show takes a look at the ‘movers and shakers’ of the classic car world – the vehicles that set the financial tone at the upper end of the classics market. These classic beauties have seen incredible value change in 2022, what is driving the market, will it continue in 2023 and is this the only appreciating sector of the market? A feature display combined with a panel discussion of some of the models helping to shape the market in 2023.
One of the main features of the show, Generations, a tribute to legendary car models celebrating their anniversary in 2023. So far confirmed are:
2023 marks 60 years since the launch of the legendary Porsche 911, one of the most significant vehicles in the Porsche marque’s history. The London Classic Car Show presents one of each of the eight generations as well as multiple iterations. A chance to explore the evolution of an icon, from the very first 911 Type 901 to the latest 911 Type 992.
The second Generations feature will celebrate the 70th anniversary of Corvette, which, for eight generations, has blurred the lines between American muscle and European sports-car characteristics, while remaining an unforgettable cultural icon. The London Classic Car Show is delighted to present each generation of this great marque.
The London Classic Car Show proudly presents the next generation for prudent tax planners – the new Fortysomethings. With £0 road tax amongst other incentives these classics are well worth consideration to put the pep back into your inner-city drive and save money at the same time! Time to regret scrapping your old Peugeot 205 20 years ago and start the search for the ultimate fortysomething!
Discover a selection of our favourite recently-qualified fortysomethings.
Barn Finds and Survivors
For most car enthusiasts, Barn Finds hold an irresistible appeal. What treasures lurk beneath the thick layers of dust and grime? Will it be worth the effort or perhaps a fortune? There’s something captivating about forgotten classics unearthed after decades.
The London Classic Car Show will be looking for the beauty behind these “field-fresh” finds in need of restoration.
And if you’ve recently discovered something very special that you’d like to share with our visitors, why not drop us a line with a picture and maybe we’ll include your precious treasure at this year’s show?

NEW! Endangered Species
Each year the ubiquitous cars of our childhood become rarer. Vehicles once manufactured in the hundreds of thousands now number in just hundreds. The London Classic Car Show will showcase a few surprisingly rare species. For example the Austin Metro, once found on every street and favoured by royalty now numbers fewer than 200 total units.
NEW! Young Turks
Every year the classic car industry makes bold predictions regarding likely future-classic cars and future values and provides advice on what makes and models might to start to appreciate. The London Classic Car Show takes a look back 10 and 20 years to see how the predictions of 2003 and 2013 have panned out and will make a few predictions of its own.
There will certainly be plenty to keep classic car enthusiasts interested, in the seven hours the show is open each day. We cannot wait. Here’s a video (below) from the show in 2020 where compère Max Girado talks over a 1931 Duesenberg Model J. Beautiful.
Maybe we will see you at the show.
