Dublin hosts National Classic Car Show

Up to 150 classic cars will be on display

Car aficionados - and historians - are descending on Dublin for the National Classic Car Show.

It will run at the Simmonscourt Pavilion in the RDS from Saturday until Monday.

Up to 150 classic cars will be on display from both the leading Irish classic car clubs and private collectors.

Vehicles from the 19th century - such as the 1896 Benz Patent Motor Car and the 1898 Benz Velo - will stand along size a display of pre-war models such as 1937 Bugatti Type 57, the Jaguar SS100, the Derby Bentley or the Austin 7 Special.

More modern models such as the 1972 Ferrari Dino, 1960 AC Cobra 427/sc or the 1951 Jaguar XK120 FHC will also be there.

'Most spectacular display'

As many as 50 individual stands will feature hundreds of vintage and classic cars at what is being billed as 'the most spectacular display ever seen' under one roof in Ireland.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to talk to expert car restorers, find tools and accessories, memorabilia, art and collectables.

Organisers have also announced that visitors to the show will have the opportunity to see one of the rarest cars ever manufactured in Ireland - the Shamrock.
