Motor Shows

Spotted in the Show

Over the years I’ve enjoyed going to various Motor Shows – be they in Geneva with machines like the Porsche 918 being launched or the RDS Classic Car Show in Dublin featuring older and specialist motors from the various sands of time.  Seeing the new machinery presented and understanding where it is taking us in motoring technology, or examining the classics that were responsible for some little element of motoring history, these shows are always enjoyable and are really something I miss now that Covid-19 has prevented us attending these events.

To keep the Motor Show spirit alive for a little longer, I thought I’d present my Spotted in the Show series.  On this page I’ll show you cars that I’ve seen at various shows I attended over the years.

So, let’s prepare to browse the stands and see what is being displayed.  Click into each car and imagine you are on the stand looking at the car in front of you, reading up its history and features and trying to figure out how to afford it!  Two sections below on offer – Classics and Modern, both presenting the motors I’ve enjoyed on a stand somewhere!
