Glimpses from 2013 Regent Street Motor Show
November 2nd saw traffic in central London slowdown for the annual Regent Street Motor Show. With the West End shopping street from Piccadilly to Oxford Circuses closed, people has turned to the free-to-view motor on hand that had 300 cars from past, present and future eras on display.
“It was fantastic to see so many people enjoying such a wonderful display of amazing cars in the fabulous setting of Regent Street,” said Ben Cussons, Chairman of the Royal Automobile Club Motoring Committee. “Staged on the eve of the Veteran Car Run, this truly unique motor show really had something for everyone from early coal fuelled steam vehicles right up to the cars that will be roaming our city centres in the decades to come. With the sun shining for most of the day and so much to enjoy and experience, it was no surprise to see the whole street absolutely packed with a mix of serious car enthusiasts and clearly curious shoppers. It’s been a huge success and a great start to what’s always a fabulous and historic automotive weekend in London.”
“The Regent Street Motor Show, displaying cars from the past, present and future, provides a great draw for visitors who can not only take great pleasure from the splendid displays but also appreciate The Crown Estate’s recent investment in Regent Street which has transformed it into the best shopping street in the West End,” added Annie Walker, Director of the Regent Street Association.
