Engines at the ready: on Saturday 2nd November, Regent Street will be pedestrianised to celebrate the Illinois Route 66 Regent Street Motor Show. With 2019 marking Regent Street’s 200th anniversary, an exciting new addition to look out for this year will be a futuristic vision into what street life may look like in 200 years, as a nod to Regent Street’s significant milestone.
If you haven’t yet visited the country’s biggest free-to-view car-themed spectacle, keep reading. The Motor Show on Regent Street will feature a full spectrum of remarkable automotive prowess alongside an array of on-street activity for all ages to enjoy.
Early Victorian and Edwardian transportation will be wonderfully represented, with over one hundred extraordinary pre-1905 pioneers present. Watch these classic vehicles in the annual Veteran Car Concours d’Elegance on Regent Street (ahead of the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run which takes place the following morning). These veteran motors will be joined by collections of evocative classic and desirable contemporary cars bridging time within automotive history as the Motor Show celebrates the past and showcases the future.
With eyes on both the present and future, Go Ultra Low will be on hand to share information on plug-in cars that are cleaner, quieter and lots of fun to drive. Curious to try out this new technology? Several of its manufacturers will be offering test drives in their latest state-of-the-art plug-in models so you can really get to grips with the cars.
