Date set for London's West End motor show

The annual Regent Street Motor Show, held in central London, will take place on Saturday, November 1.

The West End will be closed to traffic for the UK’s largest free-to-view motor show.
 
In 2013, the traffic-free zone was extended to stretch from Piccadilly Circus right up to Oxford Circus for the very first time.

In excess of 400,000 visitors enjoyed a mile of displays which featured 300 cars.
 
“The Regent Street Motor Show is now a firm fixture in London’s calendar of events attracting visitors from around the UK and overseas,” said Annie Walker, director of the Regent Street Association. “The event has developed over the years and visitors now come to expect not only the fantastic display of pre-1905 veteran cars, but an exhibition of vehicles from the past present and future. With the consistent high standard and quality of the event each year, it is no surprise that it attracts thousands motoring enthusiasts and shoppers to Regent Street on the day."  

Timed to coincide with the annual running of the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, the 2014 Regent Street Motor Show – a Royal Automobile Club event – will again include a large number of the amazing pre-1905 cars in the EFG Concours d'Elegance.

This collection of veteran cars will then be heading off early from Hyde Park the following morning as they make its way to the Sussex coast.

The Regent Street Motor Show also provides manufacturers with the opportunity to showcase their latest offerings and future technologies. Last year electric vehicles such as the Renault Twizy and BMW i3 were among the most popular.
