In just under three weeks The London Motor Show at Battersea Park will be in full swing, and the motor show is delighted to announce that confused.com have become the titled sponsor for 2017. Last year's event attracted over 25,000 car enthusiasts, selling out on the Saturday and the Sunday.
As you would expect, confused.com will feature throughout the motor show, with various activities, stands and promotions. and will also be included in the official opening with her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent.
London Motor Show 2017 features over 130 brand-new cars; this includes famed brands such as Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Nissan, Vauxhall, Morgan, Ferrari, and as well as manufacturers, expect to see a wide range of tuning companies including Yiannimize, famed throughout Instagram for show stopping Cars Wraps and modifications, Liberty Walk New York's finest who specialise in awesome automobiles - expect to see their modified McLaren sporting its extensively wide arches, modified kit finished in a vibrant eye-catching colour, and two other surprise cars from their collection, and of course, Kahn - famed for his tuning parts and custom wheels.
However it's not just new cars and tuners, in addition, you will see many historic vehicles, some of which are the best loved British, American and Japanese Marques. Also watch out for something special by David Brown Automotive - they will be launching their remastered Mini, making their public debut at the confused.com London Motor Show. This exclusive Mini, has been completely remastered, based on a classic Mini, perfectly matching London life reborn into a city car for modern living. The car is powered by 74 bhp, 1.3L engine or 12 75 if you prefer, with a four-speed gearbox and sporting the classic Mini chassis and panels of yesteryear. However, unlike the 60's, this particular Mini comes with an inbuilt infotainment system, as well as satellite navigation and even Apple Car Play, and a host of modern connectivity. It also comes with Android Auto, four speakers, USB connectivity, and charging as well as a funky stylish pushbutton start, and of course, don't forget the remote central locking and keyless entry. Makes us wonder whether they will remaster other vehicles, such as the Mk1 Golf, the Talbot Alpine, or even the Austin Maxi.
David Brown Automotive will also have on show its revolutionary speed back GT. This is a bespoke vehicle, which has a 5L twin scroll supercharged engine which delivers 510 bhp - not unsurprising for a V8 - however, the nought to 60 is a staggering 4.6 seconds and with that V-8 powering you-you be able to reach a155 miles an hour...
David Brown is known for using a combination of state-of-the-art tech engineering, and traditional coach building to make the perfect vehicle. Each car is made at their HQ in Silverstone, and every vehicle has a handcrafted interior, which is limited edition and is completely bespoke and commissioned for the customer.
