"After 6 months of work I declare it finished!" - Gualberto Rocha
The British Motor Museum is to host a brand new exhibition to celebrate one of Britain’s best-selling small cars - entitled “Metro at 40”. For the first time the Museum will be hosting the exhibition online as part of its drive to have more online and accessible insights into their collection. The exhibition, which went live on 9 September, is free to view from their website and gives everyone the chance to celebrate this iconic car’s special birthday.
A one day celebration of the two iconic British small car marques at the British Motor Museum. 2020 marks the 40th anniversary of the Austin Metro and 30th anniversary of the Rover Metro. Due to Covid-19 the BMC & Leyland show will also be taking place on the same day, providing even more cars to see at the show!
As many of you will already know 2020 marks the 40th anniversary of the Metro, which was first launched in October 1980. To celebrate the occasion we've created a brand new range of merchandise, which will be available online and at shows throughout the year. Today we're launching our clothing range, with more to follow - watch this space!
