London Classic Car Show 2017 attracted over 37,000 enthusiasts to the show situated at the London Excel Centre. The star attraction was the Ferrari 250 GTO worth some £25 mill brought to the show by Joe Macari Performance Cars in Wandsworth.

The show had a large amount of classic Jaguar e-types and old Porsches but was mainly geared for the high end of the modern classics. Joe Macari had assembled a snap shot of the greatest Ferraris of all time. The stunning Ferrari 250 GTO, legends like Ferrari F40 and the F50, and of course the LaFerrari hypercar. The show featured 3 LaFerraris alone. For an exclusive car it must have been awkward with 3 of the 499 examples available at the show alone. The show had a co-located sister show called Historic Motorsport International with featured old race cars.

The show also had a “catwalk” where classics would parade down

The “catwalk” featured Aston Martins, Ferraris, a Volkswagen GTI Mk1, and Porsche 911 GT3 RS Cup car.

 

 

Aston Martin Owners Club had an Aston Martin Vulcan on display. The $2.3 million limited edition car will only be made in 24 examples and will have 800 BHP from its 7.0 liter engine.

Aston Martin had further brought a Aston Martin DBS barn find.
