The London Concourse, presented by Montres Breguet, closed its doors yesterday after three sold-out days, in a luxurious setting with over 8,000 guests and luxurious cars. Hosted in a five-acre lush green oasis close to the Hon’ble Artillery Company, Bank, the event hosted over 100 fine privately owned vehicles spanning over 100 years of motoring.
The world’s 100 rarest and most collectible cars
The most popular was the last day of this year’s event, ‘Supercar Day’, presented by Amari Lifestyle in association with the Drivers’ Union. On its third day, the show welcomed the exclusive Supercar Owners Club, which brought together 50 of the best cars from its members, gracing the HAC Lawn with 100 of the world’s rarest and most collectible cars. Cars on display include everything from the awesome Lamborghini Diablo SV to its modern successor, the equally wild Aventador SV, the McLaren 675LT to the stripped-out Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale – everything in between.
‘Japanese Jewels’ and ‘The Italian Spider’ included
In total, about 100 cars were on display in eight classes. The main Concourse event classes included ‘Pursuit of Speed’, ‘Great Marks – Mercedes-Benz’, ‘Japanese Jewels’ and ‘The Italian Spider’. From the Ferrari 250 GT California SWB to the Mercedes-Benz 300SL ‘Gullwing’ and Ferrari F50, each class was full of rarities, but as always there could only be one ‘Best in Show’.
R Looks, Sweet Straight-Six and Multi Hi-Tech Features
After much deliberation, the London Concourse’s expert committee of 17 judges established the stunning 1967 Toyota 2000GT as the overall winner, rising to the top of an extraordinary field. Ultra-rare – one of just 351 cars built – the 2000GT was introduced with the help of Yamaha to act as the Halo model for Toyota’s range. With its stunning looks, sweet straight-six and multi hi-tech features – the GT certainly delivered in its acronym. All the judges deeply impressed by this authentic Japanese jewel, which now ranks among the most iconic classics of all.
One of the most stylish motor cars
The coveted Speaker’s Award – given to the car that the president of the London Concours wants to take home from the event – went to one of the most amazing Ferraris – perhaps one of the most stylish motor cars of all – the Ferrari 250 GT California SWB . This near-but-priceless drop top brought a healthy dose of Modanis glamor to the event, looking great at home on HAC’s sun-kissed lawn, all while firmly in its thrall.
Andrew Evans, director of the London Concor said
As the sun sets for the 6th edition of our show, and revelers disperse after the third day of London Concours 2022, we can reflect on another hugely successful show. Supercar Day was once again hugely popular, with 50 of the best supercars adding to an already spectacular array of 100 rare and collectible, privately owned vehicles.
