New auction partner – Historics Auctioneers – announced for Olympia celebration
Exciting live sale featuring up to 100 fine classic and collectors cars
Major new attraction as anticipation accelerates for capital’s premier classic car event
Tickets now on sale with limited Premium Experience packages available
A buzzing live auction of much-loved automotive icons from yesteryear will add yet another exciting new dimension to next year’s eagerly-anticipated The London Classic Car Show (24-26 February).
After a two-year enforced break, the capital’s premier event for discerning classic car enthusiasts returns to Olympia in true style, kicking-off the 2023 season with a glittering array of must-see attractions.
Providing visitors inspired by all of the eye-catching special displays with a wonderful opportunity to join the thriving classic car movement, the show will also see a collection of 100 fine and varied classic and collector’s cars coming under the Historics hammer on Saturday 25th February.
As The London Classic Car Show’s newly-appointed Official Auction Partner, Historics Auctioneers will oversee an intriguingly eclectic sale, carefully curated to appeal to the breadth of those attending.
“We are delighted to have concluded this significant agreement with The London Classic Car Show,” said Mark Perkins, CEO of the Buckinghamshire-based auctioneer. “Having established and grown to become the South of England’s premier classic car auction specialists, it’s a natural extension to now bring Historics’ unique auction flavour to London and to the legion of enthusiasts in the capital and beyond.”
Olympia has been steeped in motoring history for more than a century and the addition of a live auction on Saturday will add extra energy and interest to what is on offer, as well as further enhancing the visitor experience with a gathering of 100 alluring classics on show.
“It’s great to be back at Olympia and to welcome Historics Auctioneers as our new Official Auction Partner,” enthused Martin Clarke, Content Director of the event.
“A live auction never fails to create an electric atmosphere and I’m sure all those coming to London will be spellbound as the bidding starts – even more so if they are tempted to raise an arm! Either way, we are delighted that Historics Auctioneers will be part of our fantastic show and providing us all with even more amazing cars from former golden eras to savour.”
With capacity limited to 100 entries, Historics Auctioneers is now inviting early consignment to The London Classic Car Show Sale on 01753 639170, or email email@example.com. For further information, and to pre-register to bid, see www.historics.co.uk
Other confirmed highlights shining under Olympia’s magnificent, Victorian barrel-vaulted roof include stellar ‘Generations’ displays showcasing the remarkable evolution of legendary models such as the evergreen Porsche 911 and timeless Chevrolet Corvette.
Further dazzling displays will put spotlights on ‘Young Turks’ and ‘Endangered Species’ – the former focusing on future inflation-beating classics, the latter on cars like the Austin Metro that were once ubiquitous and are now nearing extinction. Who knows, examples of these may be coming under the Historics’ hammer, too.
Offering exceptional value, adult admission to the Show in advance is priced at just £25 (plus booking fees). A limited number of exclusive Premium Experience tickets are also available for those seeking to enjoy The London Classic Car Show in style.
