Motorexpo comes to London
The free-to-enter Motorexpo comes to London from 11 – 17 June, with 250 cars on display.
There will be a number of cars that have not been seen in the UK before, such as the Jaguar XF Sportbrake and the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. Other new models include the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and the second-generation Kia Cee'd family hatchback.The Canary Wharf location means that there will be a massive number of luxury and supercars on show – presumably the city boys can just pop down and buy a new Lambo on their lunchbreak – "Would you like a new Gallardo with your BLT, sir?"
As well as Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Bentley and Ferrari will be represented – highlights will include the Aston Martin Rapide and amazing four-seat, four-wheel-drive Ferrari FF. Now the FF really would be ideal for a city gent to get to his Alpine ski chalet in style - see our video here.
Talking of four-wheel-drive, Land Rover will be bringing their heritage collection, including one of the first Land Rovers, just to remind everyone that they were building off-roaders when BMW were still making bubble-cars and an Audi was just a small saloon made by Auto Union – a kind of German Cortina.
There will also be an auction of classic cars, including a £1million-plus Lamborghini Reventon, one of just 12 lightweight E-Type Jaguars and other models from Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche and Pagani.
Many of the new cars on show can be driven around the Canary Wharf estate, but you might need quite a convincing business card for some of the more expensive models.
