A display of nearly 30 classic Vauxhall motors is now on display at the British Motor Museum for visitors to enjoy.

The collection charts the story of Vauxhall Motors' rise from a niche sporting car manufacturer to one of the UK's best-known automotive brands.

It demonstrates the heritage of Britain's oldest vehicle manufacturer through each decade from the very first 5hp Light Car in 1903.

The display has been organised after it was announced that the Gaydon museum would become home to Vauxhall's 50-vehicle collection.

The exhibition is included as part of a normal museum admission.

Head of collections at the British Motor Museum Stephen Laing said that he was "delighted" that Vauxhall had approached the museum about curating "one of the most significant collections" from a UK car company.

"It fits perfectly with the museum's aim to broaden even further the range of marques that are represented here at Gaydon," he said.

"It adds a new dimension to the stories we tell about the cars and the people in Britain's motor industry. With so much choice, it has already been tough making the first selection of 30 cars to display in the museum."
