OUR PICK OF THE SIX NA­TIONS CAT­WALK CLAS­SICS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Event Report -

Ex­CeL vis­i­tors were asked to vote in a con­test to find the best na­tion of car­mak­ers, with 60 cars from six dif­fer­ent coun­tries be­ing pa­raded on the Grand Av­enue. This is our

pick of the clas­sics that took part. JA­PAN 1990 HONDA NSX Honda’s NSX strut­ted its stuff along the cat­walk,

leav­ing even the most ar­dent of clas­sic fan im­pressed by its sleek lines. The late Ayr­ton Senna loved them, too, but you al­ready knew that. This ex­am­ple be­longs to Honda UK and was a pre

pro­duc­tion model used for de­vel­op­ment.

ITALY 1965 FER­RARI 275 GTS

This achingly beau­ti­ful Fer­rari 275 GTS V12 con­vert­ible came cour­tesy of mar­que spe­cial­ist Joe Macari. Worth a cool £1.6 mil­lion, it’s a rare sight on UK roads, prob­a­bly be­cause Fer­rari only made 200 of them. This ex­am­ple was orig­i­nally sup­plied

to the US and is in phe­nom­e­nal con­di­tion. USA 1965 SHELBY MUS­TANG If any car’s go­ing to wave the Stars and Stripes con­vinc­ingly enough to win then surely it’s got to be a Shelby Mus­tang. It was joined by a 1942 Willys Jeep, a 1959 Cadil­lac Coupé Se­ries 62 and a 1910 Ford Model T, but it was this Wim­ble­don

White mus­cle car that im­pressed.
