Concours d'elegance Hampton Court 2014Category: Classic Marques
With the Concours of Elegance now established as an annual event, the UK has an international concours to be justifiably proud of—world-class to match the very best. In just two years, 120 of the world’s rarest collector cars have been enticed and assembled on rarely accessed Royal lawns. Windsor Castle in 2012, St James’s in 2013.
The quality of the event speaks for itself. Such is the rarity and significance of the cars that have been transported from around the globe, it’s testament to how important the Concours of Elegance is regarded by the world’s premier collectors.
This year, we visited the award-winning Concours of Elegance at the 17th Century Royal Palace at Hampton Court – Henry VIII’s favourite royal residence. Here in front of the spectacular east side of the Palace in the Grand Fountain gardens amongst the 300 year old yew trees, our third majestic festival of rare historic cars will take place.
