From the Crown Estates Office.

 

Another traffic-free day on Regent Street, London W1 takes place on Saturday 2 November, 2013. This year we will be celebrating 50 years of the Porsche 911 as well as Aston Martin’s 100 year anniversary.

Taking place between 10:00 and 16:00, this year’s Regent Street Motor Show will be the biggest yet with over 300 cars on display in-between Oxford Circus to Piccadilly Circus.

Among the highlights will be special showcases celebrating 50 years of the Porsche 911 and 100 years of the Aston Martin marque. Other manufacturers including BMW and Renault will also be showcasing their latest models. And more than 100 pre-1905 veteran cars, which are being driven to Brighton the next day, will be participating in a special EFG International Concours d’Elegance staged at the north end of Regent Street.

The largest free motor show in the UK, the Regent Street Motor Show showcases 125 years of motoring history ranging from the pioneering automobiles from the Victorian age right up to the very latest supercars.

"The annual Regent Street Motor Show is a truly unique event," said Ben Cussons, Chairman of the Royal Automobile Club Motoring Committee. "It is not only set in one of the world’s most famous shopping streets right in the heart of London’s buzzing West End but, featuring such a comprehensive collection of amazing cars, also provides a truly amazing spectacle. Now with the road closure stretching all the way up to Oxford Circus, there will be even more eye-catching displays for all comers to enjoy come this year’s eagerly-anticipated event."

Annie Walker, Director of the Regent Street Association, said: "The Crown Estate’s recent investment in Regent Street has made it a must visit shopping and dining destination, and The Regent Street Motor Show, displaying cars from the past, present and future, provides a good reason for visitors to come who possibly have no idea how the street has been transformed into the best shopping street in the West End."
