High-end fashion will to a populat motoring event with a visit from a "Gucci Edition" 1973 AMC Hornet V8 – one of only two thought to be in existence in Britain.

The designer sedan station wagon is the proud possession of a classics’ enthusiast from Norton, Stockton and contains the signature Gucci upholstery and the original headlining material, complete with the famed Italian fashion house’s double G embroidery.

It is a rare vehicle, with Gucci having partnered up with AMC to offer a unique designer edition, only available on the Sportabout body style. Though the five-door Hornet was one of AMC’s most popular models, the pragmatic little wagon hardly seemed a likely candidate for the glamour treatment, but that’s exactly what happened, and the Teesside enthusiast now owns a piece of American motoring history.

It will be joined by more than 500 classic cars, commercial vehicles, motorbikes, and camper vans, at the show, which is free to enter for exhibitors, though donations are welcomed.
