Veteran cars Regent St show in London

If you happen to be in London on the weekend of 6 November, it'll be worth your while to go to the famous Regent Street, where more than 100 veteran cars will be available to view, in advance of the next day's Bonham's Veteran Car Run to Brighton.

The veterans will take part in a Concours d’Elegance, a major highlight of the free-to-view Regent Street Motor Show, an annual event staged in one of the world's most prestigious shopping and lifestyle destinations situated right at the heart of the nation’s capital city.

Exhibiting in front of a panel of expert judges, the veterans will all be more than 112 years old, with the youngest built in 1904 and the oldest in 1898. While most are petrol-powered, the Concours entry also includes an American-built Cleveland electric car from 1900.

They will be competing for a number of awards including the Concours d’Equipe for the best turned-out team in period costume and the overall Concours d’Elegance.
