With the planned lifting of all lockdown restrictions scheduled for mid June, the London Classic Car Show, June 25th – 27th is ideally placed to make your first 2021 automotive indulgence. Having been launched in 2015 at the Excel it moved to Olympia for 2020. This peripatetic event will this year be held in the grounds of the 16th century Thames side venue of Syon Park. Although just 14 Km (9 miles in old money) its park and garden offer a very rural riverside ambience. Possibly why it was chosen as one of the locations for the recent Netflix production of Bridgerton.
This years event theme is ‘The Evolution of Design’ and will feature automotive innovations covering 135 years. Duncan Pittaway, famed owner/restorer/racer/collector of exotic vehicles, the monstrous Fiat S76 is one of his, will bring and run his 1893 Salvesen Steam Car. Which according to him is the only one that can simultaneously toast waffles and brew tea. Something the most modern cars can’t do, even with an App.
This will be one of the earliest vehicles and with a time line covering over a century and a quarter that will reach up to the latest supercars there will be a diversity rarely seen or experienced at other events. Including a tribute to 60 years of the Jaguar E-Type and the centenary of the Bugatti Bresica.
