City Concours stars revealed
An impressive list of attendees is announced, and there are more to come
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.
