Vauxhall is opening its Heritage Centre to the public on Sunday, August 18 as it celebrates its 110th birthday, giving everyone the chance to see its private collection of historic vehicles for free.
With cars from the current range alongside those dating back to 1903, Vauxhall Heritage Centre’s annual open day is always a great day out for the car enthusiast and, with entertainment, activities and refreshments throughout the day, great for the family as well.
On display is the company’s private collection of more than 60 significant cars, including production models from every decade as well as a selection of unique concept cars. Notable cars among the collection include the 1903 5 HP, the second-oldest Vauxhall in existence, the recently restored Firenza Droop Snoot, Astra Mk1 GTE and the Lotus Carlton, the first super-saloon. There will also be the chance to see not one, but two of the legendary 30-98 models, Britain’s first 100mph car, which celebrates its centenary this year. All of the exhibits are roadworthy.
