By Paul Joseph

UK luxury car dealership Hexagon are celebrating its 50th anniversary by opening a new purpose-built showroom dedicated to classic cars in north London

For many years one of the largest BMW dealerships in the country, Hexagon has decided to step back from new car sales to focus entirely on classic car sales, launching a new venture called Hexagon Modern Classics, which specialises in the best sub-£100,000 BMW and Porsche cars available to the market.

Hexagon Classics has built an international reputation for the sale of high-end classic cars, specialising in quality examples of Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche and Jaguar models sold out of its exclusive Kensington Mews premises in Central London.

Paul Michaels, founder and Chairman of Hexagon, says: “I have decided that this year, my 50th in the business, is the perfect time for me to return to my roots and get my business to focus entirely on sourcing and selling classic cars.

“We’ve enjoyed several decades of new car sales and have built an enviable reputation as a BMW dealer, but classic cars are where my heart truly lies and now feels exactly the right time for us to re-focus all of our energy into growing Hexagon Classics and our new Modern Classics venture.”

Hexagon Modern Classics has a particular specialisation in all air-cooled Porsches up to and including the 993 series cars and M-series BMWs ranging from the E30 through to E46 and M5 derivatives. A new premises close to Hexagon’s established East Finchley site, has recently been entirely refurbished and will be the new home of Modern Classics.

Mr Michaels continued: “We are so excited to be expanding and building on our classic car sales businesses. Our new home will be a welcoming and exciting place for collectors and enthusiasts to visit.

“Modern Classics will only offer the best cars on the market, and we fully intend to be market leaders in the supply of great BMW anf Porsche cars, focusing on those models which offer a great entry to the market, great driving dynamics and with genuine investment potential.”

Hexagon also has a long racing history with cars such as D-Type Jaguars and Formula 5000. In 1972 Hexagon Racing ventured into Formula One with driver John Watson, and various sports car series with drivers such as Richard Atwood, Bob Evans and Derek Bell.
