IRELAND’S biggest and best car show will return to Terenure College on Sunday, July 7.

With up to 1,400 cars on display, children’s amusements, a wide choice of food and music from Tom Cole Jnr, the Irish Classic & Vintage Motor Show promises to be a great day out for all the family.

This year is the 60th birthday of the Mini and Inspector Morse’s favourite Mark II Jaguar.

In 2005, the burgundy Mark II Jaguar used on the hit TV series sold for more than £100,000.

The 1960 car, made famous by the late John Thaw as the crossword, opera and real ale-loving Oxford detective, was snapped up by a UK-based businessman.

As well as these iconic classics, there will be something for everyone, from 100-year-old Model Ts to the latest cars from Mercedes and Porsche.

Highlights will include Ireland’s largest ever gathering of Aston Martins from the classic DB4 and DB5, beloved of James Bond, to the current DBS and DB11 models.

The iconic Aston Martin DB5, released in 1963, is a luxury grand tourer made by British luxury sports cars manufacturer Aston Martin. It was a slight upgrade from the DB4 which preceded it.

The DB5 is most famous for being the third, but most recognised, James Bond car.

The vehicle first appeared in the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger and went on to appear in Thunderball, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale, Skyfall and Spectre.

In addition, the vehicle has appeared in the video-games 007 Racing, Agent Under Fire, From Russia With Love, Blood Stone and in the DLC Best of Bond.

A different type of Bond motor will be on a display with a series of economical three-wheeled microcars doing the rounds, alongside rarities from Peel, Goggomobil and Messerschmitt.

Hybrid technology will be represented by the awesome 200mph Jaguar C-X75 supercar.

Designed, engineered and built in Britain, a total of just 250 are being made. Fifty of them are set to be racing versions.

Production cars cost between £700,000 and £900,000, making it a smidge cheaper than a Bugatti Veyron or Aston Martin One-77.

The show will run from 10am to 5pm on Sunday, July 7 and tickets are available online on or at the gate with free parking available in the college

Follow the signs and marshals’ instructions to enter and exit the car parks via Fortfield Road and Templeogue Road.

This year the event will support the Dublin Samaritans who can be reached on 116123.

There will be classic motors of all shapes and sizes at the show.
