Shopping centre hosts motor show

A four-day motoring and retail event has kicked off at the massive Bluewater shopping centre in Kent.

Motorshow@Bluewater was opened by motoring journalist and broadcaster Quentin Wilson, who will spend the afternoon looking at the latest car models and talking to dealers about the motor industry.

More than 17 different car brands will be on display, with local dealerships offering special one-off deals. Visitors will be among the first in the country to see the new Renault Koleos 4x4 before it is unveiled at the London Motor Show later this year.

Also on display will be the sunflower-yellow Megane Coupe-Cabriolet Giallo, one of only six limited edition models in the UK.

Motorshow@ will be hosting a further three events this year, at The Mall at Cribbs Causeway from July 10 to 13; Ascot Racecourse from July 11 to 12; and the Trafford Centre in Manchester from July 24 to 27.
