The annual Regent Street Motor Show returned on Saturday 4th November, showcasing over 125 years of motoring from past, present and future.
On 4th November, Regent Street became a traffic free thoroughfare and host to the UK’s largest free-to-view motor show.
The showcase saw timeless classic cars alongside the latest in modern motorcars; futuristic low and zero emission electric and hybrid vehicles from leading manufacturers.
The Veteran Car Concours d’Elegance remained an event highlight, displaying around 100 remarkable motoring pioneers all vying for honours and prizes, including “top French car and ensemble” a nod to the theme of this year’s Veteran Car Run.
In keeping with the spirit of the event, many of the drivers and passengers were dressed in period costume, reflecting the fashions of a bygone era; garments that may well have been sold on our very street at the end of the nineteenth century.
Fun for all the family, there was an opportunity to take test drives in the latest machinery, street entertainment from dance troupes and even a daring motorcycle stunt team.
Michael Kors at 179 Regent Street also joined the day’s motorsport celebrations, hosting a McLaren Honda racing simulator in-store alongside a special appearance by F1 driver, Stoffel Vandoorne.
Visitors could try their hand at racing like the pros in this breath-taking simulator and had the chance to win a £500 Michael Kors gift card, before taking a pit stop at the Michael Kors’ in-store bar where East London’s Scout served motor-inspired drinks made from British ingredients. Between 1.30pm - 3pm, Stoffel Vandoorne stopped by the Regent Street store, signing photos and greeting fans.
