Running from the 15th to the 18th February, the third annual, four-day motoring event, will be a spectacular showcase of automotive nostalgia – bringing together the very best manufacturers, car clubs, dealers and products.

More than 800 vintage vehicles will be on display, along with an abundance of crowd pleasing features – so there will be plenty to soak up, as classic car lovers get lost in a sea of polish and petrol.

Some of the highlights include:  


A Tribute To Infamous Classics

DCI Gene Hunt himself, actor Philip Glenister, will be curating a selection that pays tribute to  vintage getaway cars made famous on the big screen, or that were used in infamous real-life robberies.

The celebration will include a wealth of charismatic classics, from The Italian Job’s Mini Cooper S, to the Jaguar MKII 3.4, dubbed the perfect getaway car after numerous appearances in film and television.

The Grand Avenue Gallery

The LCCS will once again include the Grand Avenue display for 2018 – which will showcase a collection of 60 special classics.     

The vintage cars on display will be steeped in mystery, fame and history, due to their quality, performance, and unique designs. More and more of these special vehicles will be added to the gallery as the event continues, and the sight of these rare machines is sure to ignite plenty of interest.

An Iconic Award

Englishman and remarkable racer, Nigel Mansell CBE, will be receiving the show’s annual Icon Award this year.

A showcase of his cars will celebrate Mansell’s magnificent motor racing career, 25 years on since he won the FIA Formula One World Championship title. The iconic man himself will also be there to meet many lifelong fans, sign autographs and share memories of his achievements.
