The London Classic Car Show 2015: in pictures

We attended the opening of London's first major classic car show and here's our gallery of the highlights

Despite being home to thousands of classic car owners, enthusiasts and collectors, London didn't have an event celebrating the world of classic cars. That has changed now, with the first London Classic Car Show opening its doors this weekend at the Excel Centre in the London's Docklands.

The huge show halls at Excel mean that as well as being inside, away from the worst of the January weather, the show ofers the chance to see the cars actually running and driving. A fake road set up through the middle of the show floor was the centre of attention as the cars were driven through.

Seeing the cars in motion is a big draw for the event, but it's obviously no Goodwood Festival of Speed - the cars can hardly break the 5mph mark. Still, cars are all about movement anf the London Classic Car Show has it.

The event aslo features exhibits from some car-mad celebrities. James May brought together a group of groundbreaking cars, chef James Martin set-up a car-themed cafe and Red Bull F1 designer Adrian Newey put together a collection of cars that have been important to him over the years.

Click through our gallery to see some of our favourite cars that we spotted on the opening night of this brand new event. The show is open from 8-11 January at London's Excel Centre.
