After an 81-year hiatus, London’s Olympia is once again to stage a Motor Show as Grand Auto is confirmed as taking place from 5-8 July 2018 at the Kensington venue.
Described by organiser Brand Events as a next generation motor show, headline features of Grand Auto are to include a rolling car parade, a showcase of iconic cars through the decades, a future technology zone and a programme of lectures exploring themes of change in the automotive industry. There will also be an on-site restaurant serving food curated by Michelin star chefs, and a live screening of the British Grand Prix in the F1 Cafe.
Grand Auto Creative Director Bas Bungish said: “This unique event will feature over 250 of the most desirable cars from the past, present and the future, from the world’s leading motor manufacturers, specialist and classic car dealers. Olympia is an iconic venue with a unique motoring heritage and we are looking forward to creating the next chapter with Grand Auto.”
Manufacturers confirmed to attend include Jaguar, Aston Martin, Bentley, Pagani, KTM, Peugeot and Lamborghini, with more expected to be announced in the coming months. Additional key exhibitors will include Stratstone, Bob Forstner, Brabus and Joe Macari.
