The London Motor Show Day 1 was a huge success

BACK AND BETTER: The London Motor Show

THE OPENING day of The London Motor Show 2017 proved a huge success on Thursday, May 4, as thousands of automotive enthusiasts descended on Battersea Evolution for the start of the motoring extravaganza.

MG kicked off the show in style by launching its all-new XS compact SUV, which is set to rival the Nissan Juke when it goes on sale in late 2017. The car lined up alongside the MG3 supermini and MG GS at the show and commanded plenty of attention.

British coachbuilder David Brown Automotive then handed a world debut to its latest creation – the Mini Remastered – with a stunning reveal in the Luxury Pavilion for which hundreds of enthusiasts gathered. The highly exclusive Mini Remastered is based on a classic Mini and is reborn into a city car for modern living – making it the perfect match for London life.

Crowds then gathered at Sutton to see a new bespoke Mustang CS800, which adds a whipple supercharger, a bigger intercooler, new injectors, a larger throttle body and an entirely new exhaust to take it to over 800hp. Sutton’s new Range Rover Sport also gave visitors plenty to shout about, with the unique styling kit turning plenty of heads

Liberty Walk was one of the most eagerly anticipated attendees at The London Motor Show before the doors were opened on Thursday, and the tuner more than lived up to its billing by pulling the wraps off a bespoke McLaren 650S.

Plus, Ancaster Group served up a superb display in the last reveal of the day, as the all-new Nissan Micra was unveiled for the first time in the UK. The hatchback is a hugely important model for Nissan, and Ancaster’s model drew plenty of attention from the Battersea crowds.
