To celebrate 110 years of Vauxhall, the Heritage Centre is holding its annual open day on 18 August 2013.


Visitors will be able to view Vauxhall’s private collection of over 60 historical vehicles. The collection includes cars from the current range and unique concept models, as well as models from every decade dating back to 1903.


Notable cars include the 1903 5 HP - the second-oldest Vauxhall in existence, the recently restored Firenza Droop Snoot, the Astra MK1 GTE and the legendary Lotus Carlton. There will also be the chance to see two of the legendary 30-98 models, Britain’s first 100mph car, which celebrates its centenary this year.


All cars are kept roadworthy and in pristine condition by the Vauxhall Heritage Team.


The annual open day runs from 10am to 4pm and is a great day out for car enthusiasts. Plus, with entertainment, activities and refreshments, it’s fun for all the family as well.


The Heritage Centre is situated in the grounds of Vauxhall’s head offices in Luton, located on Park Street. General admission is free and free parking is also provided.
