London Motor Show in gear

The doors of the London Motor Show 2017 opened yesterday at Battersea Evolution.

The four-day automotive extravaganza will host a number of UK debuts, including the Alpine A110, Alpina B4 S Bi-Turbo, the 2017 Nissan Micra, a new McLaren concept from Liberty Walk and the Kahn Design Vengeance Volante. British coachbuilder David Brown Automotive’s latest creation – the Mini Remastered – is also making its world debut at the event.

Over 130 brand new cars are on display from major manufacturers and dealerships, including, Aston Martin, BAC, Bentley, Ferrari, Fiat, Hyundai, Lamborghini, Maserati, Mazda, Nissan, Rolls Royce, Tesla and Vauxhall.

Elsewhere, modern technical advances take pride of place at the show. The Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar is the brainchild of F1 design guru Adrian Newey and will sit on the Aston Martin Mayfair stand, whilst another unique design display from Seymour Powell is available for visitors to engage with. The innovative design firm is displaying its Virtual Reality design tool, which allows for full-scale, real-time creative design based around real engineering data.

Alec Mumford, chairman of The London Motor Show 2017, said, ‘It was great to open our doors for the second London Motor Show. Having walked around the halls, this year’s show is looking even bigger and better, with the first visitors to the show already enjoying the opportunity to get up close with some of the most beautiful and exciting cars in the world. We’re looking forward to welcoming petrolheads of all ages through the doors over the next few days.’

The London Motor Show 2017 will also give show-goers the opportunity to experience and learn more about the latest technology and safety features along with understanding alternative fuels and even driverless cars which will grace the streets of the capital in the near future.
