WHICH COUNTRY REALLY MAKES THE WORLD’S FINEST CARS?

It’s one of those great pub debates: ‘Which is the world’s greatest car building nation?’ Thankfully it’s a long-running conundrum visitors to the forthcoming London Classic Car Show (18-21 February) will settle once and for all.
• Will French flair conquer Japanese innovation?
• Vorsprung durch Technik vs British Racing Green
• Superfast Italian supercars or mighty American muscle cars?  
• The Classic Six Nations Cup will provide the definitive answer 
 
To put an end to all the interminable arguments, a special contest is being staged on the event’s central Grand Avenue – an indoor runway stretching the full length of the show at ExCeL where many of the world’s finest cars are fired up and driven.
 
Ten truly iconic and evocative cars have been selected to represent each of the American, British, French, German, Italian and Japanese automotive industries. These flag-wavers will then battle it out for ultimate Classic Six Nations Cup glory.
 
The teams will first be in action for a glittering Opening Ceremony during Thursday evening’s star-studded opening night Preview, after which there will be a very special public debate. Six respected classic car experts will put forward the case for each of the six countries represented on The Grand Avenue. Already confirmed are two well known motoring journalists and television presenters: Tom Ford and Jonny Smith.
 
Head-to-head heats then will follow on Friday and Saturday with show-goers voting for their favourite nation. After all those votes are counted, Sunday will stage fifth and third place play-offs before the afternoon’s Classic Six Nations Cup Grand Final. The winner of that concluding match will be crowned as the world’s greatest car building country, thus settling all the arguments.    
 
“It’s going to be a truly fascinating match-up,” agrees Bas Bungish, Event Director. “We have hand-picked some wonderful cars to represent the six nations including amazing Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Bentleys, Bugattis, Delahayes and Porsches as well as some less glamourous, but perhaps more significant, cars such as the VW Golf GTI, Mini Cooper S, Citroen 2CV and original Fiat 500. I’m now really intrigued to discover which country will come out on top. Will Vorsprung durch Technik overcome British Racing Green? Will French flair triumph over Japanese innovation? Will Italian prancing horses outrun American muscle? Luckily, we haven’t got long to find out.”
