Richard Joyce, managing director of The Alvis Car Company, said: ‘Our Continuation Cars are as close to the originals as we can get. We have had to make some modifications to ensure they comply with current Individual Vehicle Approval regulations but essentially the idea is to give owners the same supercar driving experience that owners had when the cars were new. And when you bear in mind that the 4.3 Tourer had a 0-60mph time of 11.3 seconds back in 1938, there’s no denying these were the supercars of their day.’
Alvis is just one of the many historic marques that will be featured at the show. Ferrari will also have a strong contingent at the ExCeL-based show. These road cars – with a collective estimated value of £120 million – is being curated with the help of London-based performance car expert Joe Macari.
But that’s not all. The London Classic Car Show – now in its third year – also incorporates a second show, Historic Motorsport International (HMI), which is devoted to historic racing and rallying. This, along with countless motor sport specialists, championship organisers, competition car dealers and race teams and special displays, makes for a very comprehensive show.
