PETROLHEADS are in for a treat next month when two stunning machines from Ford and Peugeot make their first public appearance in the UK.

The free event, which has been organised by Coventry University, will take place on University Square on Saturday June 9 and t

the range of modern and classic cars set to feature grows ever more impressive.

The new Ford Evos Concept and Peugeot 208 look set to steal the limelight, but there are also a host of Coventry-built classics on show too, including a rare 1938 Alvis Speed 25, as well modern cars designed by graduates of Coventry University’s world-renowned industrial design courses.

And a motor festival in Coventry would not be complete without a line-up of Jaguar cars and an exhibit of a range of models from the current XF to the historic E-Type will guarantee to catch the eye.

"We’ve now got over 70 classic and modern cars on display in University Square for Coventry Car Day, which we believe to be the widest range of cars seen in the city for half a century,” said Andrew Noakes, organiser of Coventry Car Day.

"There’ll be something for everyone, whether you’re a fan of classics, current production cars, concepts or race cars – and we’re throwing in a few surprises as well."

The former chief of Jaguar and Ford, Sir Nick Scheele, is set to deliver the prestigious annual Bugatti Lecture against the backdrop of the city’s car extravaganza.

And members of the public are also being invited to take part in a 'QuestionTime' Q&A session with a host of automotive industry luminaries chaired by Autocar magazine editor-in-chief Steve Cropley.
