The free to view Regent Street motorshow 2016 returns on Saturday 5th November. Turning one of London’s most popular streets into a automotive celebration of cars from the past, present and future
The free-to-view Regent Street Motor Show was first held in 2005 and the event continues to get better and better. The 2015 event was the most popular yet, welcoming a record 450,000 visitors.
Regent Street Motorshow 2016 – What’s on
Part of the Regent Street Motor Show’s appeal lies in the variety of cars on display. As well as new cars, packed with the latest technology, there’s classic cars, historic racing cars, bikes, and much more.
There is also the chance to see the veteran cars before they leave Hyde Park on the famous Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run the following morning.
At least 100 of these cars, all built before 1905, will be on display as part of the annual Veteran Car Concours d’Elegance.
Each car will be competing for a number of awards. These include the most original or unrestored car, the best drivers and passengers in period costume and the People’s Choice award.
Despite the value of these cars, Regent Street motorshow 2016 visitors can inspect the cars from close up and meet their ever-enthusiastic owners.
As well as the veteran cars, there are plenty of modern cars to see too.
Low-emission motoring is a fact of life in London today. The Regent Street motorshow offers visitors the chance to not only see but drive the latest electric and hybrid cars.
Test drive the latest hybrid and electric vehicles
The Test drive Initiative was a popular addition to last years show that is back in 2016.
Visitors booked a place to get behind the wheel of a selection of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. Many taking short test drives from Regent Street, around Berkeley Square and back.
The great news is that in 2016 more manufacturers are offering cars to test drive. Be warned though, arrive early to book as last year all the available test drive slots were quickly snapped up.
