As announced last year, there is another new classic car show coming to a TV near you very soon. The first episode of The Classic Car Show will air at 7pm, Thursday 5th February on Channel 5.

A new peak-time TV series, The Classic Car Show captures the passion, glamour and remarkable stories of the multi-billion pound global classic car industry. It is hosted by one of Britain’s most renowned classic car journalist and ex-Top Gear presenter, Quentin Willson and supermodel and petrolhead, Jodie Kidd.

Over a series of 13 one-hour episodes, The Classic Car Show will delve into the phenomenon of the classic car - a remarkable world in which 50-year-old Ferraris can sell for more than $50m.

The Classic Car Show will put the spotlight on the most prestigious historic cars with A-list contributions from the likes of Steve Coogan and Jennifer Saunders, to model David Gandy, rap superstar Tinie Tempah, race ace Bruno Senna and racing legend Sir Stirling Moss.

Feature stories from around the globe will include the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang in California, Jodie Kidd in a Jaguar XK120 at the Mille Miglia rally in Italy and resident racer Bruno Senna putting 10 classics through their paces on the track at the legendary Brooklands circuit.

As well as stars in cars with seven-figure price tags, The Classic Car Show will show you how to feel like a million dollars for under £5,000. Alex Riley, fresh from his Celebrity Mastermind win, channels his inner Simon Templar with a feature on the Jaguar XJS from The Saint. Face of 4Music, Will Best, will show that motorsport isn’t just for the well-heeled, when he tries low-cost high-fun classic car sprints. Factor in Quentin Willson picking the classics to buy now before their values go stratospheric and you’ve got compelling family viewing.
