Supercar Legends Revealed at London Concours 2018Back

Plans for Britain’s finest automotive party, London Concours 2018, are well underway, and this week the organisers have revealed a small selection of the star cars that will be in show.

London’s premier classic car event will take place at the Honourable Artillery Company from 7-8 June, and will showcase a selection of the fastest and most iconic supercars ever created.

This year’s event will bring together a world-class selection of supercar legends, all in celebration of the event’s central theme, speed.

Premier brands such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren and Aston Martin will all feature on the lawn, but there will also be a focus on rarity as well as performance, with only the exceptional models making it to the prestigious event.

More than 70 unique or exceptional cars of speed will feature at the London Concours, and this week the event organisers have revealed just four of the highlights visitors can enjoy – the Ferrari F50, Aston Martin One-77, McLaren F1 and Lamborghini Miura S.

Below, Trusted Dealers takes a look at four of the most iconic cars featured at the event.

1969 Lamborghini Miura S
Described by some as the world’s first supercar, the Lamborghini Miura debuted in 1966 and remained in production until 1973. With a two-seat layout and a rear mid-engined 4.0-litre V12 mounted just behind the driver, the Miura easily bested the competition and became the fastest car in the world at the time, with a top speed of 170mph. The car was originally created by Lamborghini’s engineering team, which designed the car in its spare time against the wishes of Ferruccio Lamborghini.

1995 McLaren F1
The F1 was first produced in 1992 and became the fastest car in the world for 13 years until 2005, setting a record of 240.1mph. It implemented a number of firsts for a road car, including a chassis made completely of strong, lightweight carbon fibre reinforced polymer making it lighter than many modern sports cars. The F1 seats three people, with the driver sitting centrally, and also features an engine bay lined with gold leaf for heat management. In all, 106 cars were manufactured, and have since become some of the most highly sought after vehicles in the world.

1996 Ferrari F50
The F50 GT is part of an illustrious list of Ferrari’s flagship cars, including the F40, the Enzo and – most recently – the LaFerrari. Built top compete in GT1-class racing, the 4.7-litre V12 engine was developed from Ferrari’s Formula One powertrain of the time, generating around 739 bhp and helping the F50 to a top speed of 202mph, with 0-60mph taking less than four seconds.

2011 Aston Martin One-77
The One-77 is a to-door coupe and one of the rarest Aston Martins ever produced, with just 77 built. Priced when new from just over £1m, the One-77 features an extensive use of carbon fibre, and is powered by a 7.3-litre V12 engine. The combination of a lightweight chassis and 750bhp engine allows for 0-62mph in less than 3.7 seconds and a top speed of over 220mph.

Aside from the main car displays, the London Concours is focused around the worlds of entertainment and luxury products, with pop-up boutiques from top-end watchmakers and arthouses.

Tickets to the London Concours are available from londonconcours.co.uk, with a full day adult admission ticket costing £35, and concessions from £18.
