Beaulieu announces new displays for 2018
The National Motor Museum has revealed a new luxury motoring display for 2018 plus a revised Top Gear exhibition
A new ‘The Luxury of Motoring’ segment has been added to the Beaulieu stately home display for 2018, joining the 250 cars already featured by the National Motor Museum collection.
The new display will feature a centrepiece collection of 28 Lalique glass car mascots, shown together for the first time. Some of the most luxurious cars ever built will feature as the exhibition retells the stories of the cars’ owners, chauffeurs and the designers and mechanics responsible for their build.
Also new-for-2018 is the Chief Engineer Tour which offers behind-the-scenes access to Beaulieu’s workshop, and features accounts from the National Motor Museum’s manager and chief engineer Doug Hill, who started work as an apprentice at Beaulieu 40 years ago.
After its launch with Top Gear presenter Chris Harris, the new-look World of Top Gear reflects the changes to the BBC programme. New exhibits include the Ssangyacht and a revised studio, both of which featured in the most recent series of the show.
Building on a record-breaking car rallies season in 2017, a brand new Simply Audi (April 29) gathering will join an expanded Simply Land Rover (June 24) as the museum celebrates the marque’s 70th anniversary.
The Award-winning International Autojumble, September 1 – 2, and Spring Autojumble, May 19 – 20, will offer stands selling classic and vintage spares, memorabilia and cars for sale.
The two-day Beaulieu Supercar Weekend is set for the August 4 – 5 weekend.
During the school half-term period, Beaulieu will be running childrens' activities around the displays.
Tickets for 2018 events can be bought in advance online.
