London Concours

The London Concours is back and there’s a spectacular list of 100 historic and performance cars at London’s HAC from the 8-10 June 2021…

Those attending the forthcoming shouldn’t be disappointed if the list of cars and classics released earlier this week are anything to go by with ‘Great marques’, ‘Italian Berlinettas, ‘Lost Marques’ and ‘Iconic British Designs’ sharing the same turf as the Ferrari 250 GT SWB and Bugatti Chiron.

E-Type birthday celebrations will also feature eleven Jaguar E-Types, including the stunning low drag and lightweight cars as well as a Group 44 race car.

London Concours Highlights

Ferrari F50
Featuring in the ‘200mph class’, the F50 is part of an illustrious list of Ferrari’s flagship cars, including the F40, the Enzo and – most recently – the LaFerrari. The 4.7-litre V12 engine was developed from Ferrari’s Formula One engine of the time, helping the car to reach a top speed of 202mph – and thoroughly earning its place in this elite club.

Ferrari 250 GT SWB
A true example of 1960s elegance, the 250 GT SWB is a stunning mix of gorgeous form and racing function. Powered by the much-revered small-capacity ‘Colombo’ V12 engine, the SWB is as captivating to drive as it is to look at. You’ll find it this year in the ‘Italian Berlinettas’ class along with 10 of the most beautiful Italian exotics ever created.

Aston Martin One-77
The One-77 is one of the rarest Aston Martins ever produced, with just 77 built. Priced when new from just over £1m, the One-77 is powered by a 7.3-litre V12 engine and can hit 220mph. The car is celebrated in 2021 alongside designer Marek Reichman in the Iconic British Designs class.

Jaguar XJR-15
Mechanically based on the Le Mans-winning Jaguar XJR-9, the XJR-15 was produced by JaguarSport a subsidiary of Jaguar and Tom Walkinshaw Racing. Powered by a 450bhp, 5.9-litre mid-rear mounted all-alloy Group C-spec V12 engine, inside a carbon-fibre tub, this XJR-15 is One of only 27 road going examples produced – and will be celebrated alongside its designer Peter Stevens in the Iconic British Designs class.

Porsche 911 2.7 RS
Built as a homologation special, only 500 of the early ‘thin-gauge’ lightweight 2.7 RS models were ever built. The first model to wear the ‘RS’ moniker, the 2.7 represented, for many, the pinnacle of the 911’s career. Sporting wide wheel arches and the iconic duck-tail spoiler, the car’s distinctive profile is immediately recognisable. It will be part of the ‘Great Marques – Porsche’ display.

Porsche 959
Another road-going homologation car, the legendary Porsche 959 was originally designed to compete in the infamous ‘Group B’ rally class. Only 292 cars were ever produced. When it was launched, the 959 was ‘the fastest road-legal car in the world’ serving as a testbed for Porsche for both turbocharged power and all-wheel drive – technologies which have made their way into many modern Porsches. Again, this car will feature in the ‘Great Marques – Porsche’ display.

Lotus Elite ‘Type 14’
Another example of 1960s elegance, an ultra-lightweight two-seater coupé, the Elite or ‘Type 14’ was produced from 1958 to 1963. The car’s most distinctive feature was its fibreglass monocoque construction, which was used for the entire load-bearing structure of the car save a steel sub-frame which supports the engine and front suspension. Only 1,030 Elites were built. There will be one in the ‘Great Marques – Lotus’ display.
