The summer music festival season is hotting up. Whether it’s classical music under the stars, an 80’s revival concert, a folk festival or something a bit more modern, there are countless concerts to choose from.

The only question is what car to drive to the venue. If you’re stuck for inspiration, then here’s some musical pointers from ClassicLine.


The Allegro was built from 1973 to 1982 with more than 600,000 models rolling off the production line.

Although the vast majority were sold in the UK it is perhaps little less known is that it was also built in Italy by Innocenti and called the Innocenti Regent.

As for the musical term, an allegro means to play fast, quickly and bright.


Spanning five generations, the Prelude was in production from 1978 to 2001.

However, Honda loves a musical car with the Accord, Quintet, Concerto, Jazz and Ballade also in its portfolio!

By the way, a prelude is an introductory piece of music, such as an orchestral opening to an opera.


Still going strong, the Forte comes from one of South Korea’s largest car makers (although the Forte is actually known as the K3 in its home country plus other names in a few different countries).

Musically it means to perform a piece of music loudly.


The Maestro was produced over two stints, firstly by British Leyland from 1982 to 1987 and then by Rover Group from 1988 to 1994.

When launched it was well received, no doubt due to some pioneering features including body-coloured plastic bumpers!

As we all know, in music terms it means someone who is very skilled at playing or conducting.

Now the music lesson has finished, ClassicLine would love to know your favourite musical cars.
