It’s true to say that it’s quite difficult keeping up with all aspects of vintage motoring and original supercar news in today’s classic car world. Every year there are fantastic events and shows to see, huge auctions that take place and of course cars that are getting another year older.
So next year the lazier and perhaps luckier enthusiasts amongst us are in for a treat as a prime time TV series capturing the passion, glamour, history and individuals involved in the world of classic cars will start this January. We welcome – The Classic Car Show.
Hosted by international supermodel and racing driver, yes this combination in life does exist, Jodie Kidd and well known UK classic car journalist, Quentin Willson, the show is currently being filmed and we couldn’t be more excited.
What’s in store With the obvious fact that the world’s most prestigious and glamorous cars will be closely looked at and admired, the show also has A-List contributions from the likes of Bruno Senna, David Coulthard and Sir Stirling Moss. The show will also feature many everyday classics during the course of the series, giving an all-round perspective on the classic car world.
Things you can look forward to watching include: Quentin Willson driving Keith Richards’ Ferrari 246 GT Dino on the French Riviera, a 1964 Brabham BT11 at the Monaco Historique and Jodie Kidd in a Jaguar XK120 at the Mille Miglia.
What drove the creation of the series is the growth and global intrigue in classic cars that is becoming ever more apparent in the UK, really emphasising the classic car market as a hobby that rivals the likes of fine wine and art.
David Coulthard, former Formula 1 driver and BBC TV F1 presenter, added: “The Classic Car Show nails the passion we all feel for historic cars, whether they’re battle-scarred racers or polished and preened show cars. It tells the stories of the men and women behind them too – it’s must-see TV”.
