More than 130 new cars descend on English capital for London Motor Show 2017

Published 28 April 2017

The London Motor Show returns to Battersea from 4-7 May 2017, with 130+ new cars and a host of world debuts for some exciting new models.

Taking place at the Battersea Evolution exhibition arena, which is next door to the iconic power station, the London Motor Show 2017 will open its doors to the public on Thursday 4 May from 2pm and be open 10am - 6pm for the rest of the weekend.

More than 130 cars will be on display and the classic A110 name will return to London, with the launch of Alpine’s new mid-engine two-seater sports car. Powered by a turbocharged 1.8-litre engine, the 250PS sports car weighs just 1080kg and is capable of covering 0-62mph in under five seconds. 

The Aventador S will also be on display. It's effectively a more powerful and focused version of the Aventador, with a whopping 730PS – 40PS more than the original model. Elsewhere, Kahn Design will showcase its coach-built Vengeance Volante, which is based on the Aston Martin DB9, while David Brown Automotive’s latest creation – the Mini Remastered – will also make its world debut.

A number of classics will be at the show, including the aero-engined 1933 Napier-Railton Special. The 24-litre racer secured 42 world and international records between 1933 and 1937, with its Brooklands Outer Circuit lap record of 143.44mph in 1935 among the most famous. 

In addition to the cars, visitors will also get the chance to learn about the latest technology through exhibits from companies showcasing developments related to safety, electric vehicles, fuel alternatives and even driverless cars.
