One of the main focuses in this section will be with Vauxhall. The British car company will ensure its award-winning models will take pride of place here to truly celebrate the British automotive industry. TVR, the British sports car maker will also be there celebrating its British heritage.
‘Tesla Shooting Brake’
The London Motor Show 2018 will be the first place to see Tesla-based Qwest Shooting Brake. The vehicle is a design based on the Tesla Model S but built by Qwest, a carbon fibre specialist. The Shooting Brake is well worth glimpsing with its ability to hit 0-60mph in just 2.8 seconds.
While the Shooting Brake is a larger design, with 7.4 extra cubic feet, thanks to the carbon fibre build, it is 12kg lighter.
All this and much more can be experienced at the London Motor Show, the perfect weekend for motoring enthusiasts.
