City Con­cours stars re­vealed

An im­pres­sive list of at­ten­dees is an­nounced, and there are more to come

Evo - - BRIEFING -

AMOUTHWATERING CAST of cars for a new con­cours event in cen­tral Lon­don is tak­ing shape. Vis­i­tors to the City Con­cours, to be held on 8-9 June on the lawn of the Hon­ourable Ar­tillery Com­pany and in as­so­ci­a­tion with evo’s sis­ter-mag­a­zine Oc­tane, had al­ready been promised a suc­cess­ful Le Mans D-type from 1957 and one of eight Tour­ing Su­per­leg­gera Disco Volante Spy­ders. How­ever, we now know that many more trea­sures from road and track will put in an ap­pear­ance.

As you’d ex­pect, the 1960s will be well rep­re­sented, with a Lam­borgh­ini Miura, a Fer­rari 250 GT Pin­in­fa­rina Coupe and the ul­tra-rare trans-at­lantic mash-up that is the Iso Grifo ( V8 by Chevy, me­chan­i­cals by Biz­zarrini, styling by Gi­u­giaro) among the en­tries. Cars from the fol­low­ing decade are no less im­pres­sive, and a Porsche 911 Car­rera 2.7 RS is set to star along­side a Lan­cia Stratos HF Stradale. So far just one ma­chine has been drafted from the 1980s – a Fer­rari 288 GTO – but more cars from that era will surely fol­low.

One of only 25 Porsche GT1 Straßen­ver­sions – the barely road-le­gal mid-en­gined 911 that al­lowed the com­pany to go after the Mclaren F1 in sportscar rac­ing – will also go on dis­play, joined by Bu­gatti’s EB110 Su­per Sport and a Jaguar XJR-15. A Maserati MC12 Corsa will carry the road-rac­ing theme into this mil­len­nium, where the so-called Holy Trin­ity of hy­brid hy­per­cars awaits along­side Pa­gani’s Zonda F and a Lexus LFA.

Visit for our spe­cial two-for-one ticket of­fer ( just £35 for the pair) and 20 per cent off break­fast and lunch pack­ages.
