Legendy Motor Show to celebrate Czechoslovak anniversary

A new location will allow for an expanded program with 1,000 exhibits and more events

The fifth edition of Legendy Motor Show will be exceptional not only for its thematic focus, but also for its new location — Výstaviště in Prague's Holešovice district. It will be held June 8–10, 2018. The three-day program will be expanded to offer more to visitors of all ages.

The motto for this year's show is: “Elegance. Style. Passion. Inspiration.”

Last year, Legendy welcomed over 40,000 visitors, which confirmed the level of local interest in motor shows. Organizers saw the need for a new space if the event was going to grow and provide visitors with more comfort.

“We were faced with a decision on how to improve and enrich our celebration for the jubilee. After carefully considering the whole situation and being aware of the importance of the event in the year when we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of Czechoslovakia, we decided to move Legendy into the increasingly modernized area of the Výstaviště fairgrounds in Holešovice,” Legendy Motor Show director Lubor Kos said. Automobiles played a big role in Czech history during the 20th century, and still are a driving force for the economy. The celebration of 100 years of Czechoslovakia will be marked by 100 unique exhibits that will create a historical cross-section of the individual decades of the century.

“I can confirm at this point that our event will be presented to the public in the entire area, that is in individual pavilions and also in all adjacent parks. We also are partly motivated by the fact that the Psychiatric Hospital in Bohnice plans to revitalize in the near future, and the program would not be possible for the next few years. Still, we remain partners with the Bohnice Psychiatric Hospital,” Kos said. 

Legendy will have over 1,000 exhibits in total. The exhibition will also be extended by one day, opening on a Friday. This change will allow for a large number of visitors to be spread out over a longer time so people have more chance to see all the exhibits.

The organizers also plan to expand the accompanying program during the event with a freestyle motocross show, children's program and other activities. Designers, artists and technology lovers can also come to lectures.

The presentation parades of racing cars and important veteran cars on a special track will take place as well. There will also be entertainment in the off-road section. Those interested in new cars will be able to evaluate and compare the new models of 30 major automakers in the world.

New cars will include Ferrari FXX-K, Ford Gt, Pagani Huayra, Mercedes AMG Project One, Mercedes AMG G 63, Lexus LC, Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo and Lamborghini Urus.

Stars of motorsports will also attend. These include FMX rider Petr “Pilník” Pilát, champion driver Jan Černý, rally pilot Roman Kresta and Peugeot WRC driver Štěpán Vojtěch.

There will be a pavilion for elegant cars of the past as well as for visions of the future.

The traditional partners of the Legendy automobile festival will be 25 automobile clubs, whose members often have unique exhibits.
