Coventry Transport Museum will host a selection of the world’s most unique classic cars in a special ‘Trailblazing Cars of the World’ display as part of the museum’s re-launch celebrations on Saturday 20th June 2015.

Harry Metcalfe (Top), EVO Magazine founder and classic car enthusiast, will be joined by racing driver and television presenter Amanda Stretton (below) to pull together the collection in a unique presentation on a special Car Catwalk to be shown in the City’s Millennium Place.

This special relaunch follows a £9m redevelopment of the whole museum. The project, which will see 12 of the museum’s 14 galleries completely transformed, also includes bringing the museum’s neighbouring 12th Century Old Grammar School back into public use for the first time in decades.

Culture Coventry chief executive Gary Hall says: “We’ve hosted shows and displays on Millennium Place outside the Museum before – but never anything like this! It is going to be a fantastic celebration of some of the most unique cars the world has ever seen – many of which were designed, engineered and built right here in Coventry. And as if that isn’t enough, international superstar supercar stuntman Terry Grant will put on the most unbelievable show right here in the square. It’s a free show, so what’s stopping you?”

The show planned to take place early afternoon with cars ranging from supercars to superminis and everything in between scheduled to join the Car Catwalk.
