If you are a classic car enthusiast then you may wish to get along to the London Concours event that is due to take place on the 7/8th June 2018 in the gardens of the Honourable Artillery Company. The show is putting on display in excess of 80 vehicles that are renowned for their speed. You are likely to see some delightful vehicles a number of them we list below but you can visit the londonconcours.co.uk website for details on many other vehicles.
When it comes to speed one of the manufacturers you tend to think of in this bracket are Ferraris. There are a number of classic Ferraris due to be on display including a Ferrari 250 GT SWB that is powered by a V12 engine ensuring rapid acceleration from 0 to 60mph. A Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona looks the part and is capable of reaching a top speed of around 174 mph. How about a more recently built car – a Ferrari F50 powered by a 4.7 litre V12 engine capable of rocketing from 0 to 60 mph in under 4 seconds as it cruises to a top speed of 202 mph.
Going back in time you could cast your eyes over the “Beast of Turin” that is a Fiat S76 with a 28.5 litre engine producing 300 bhp that, in 1911, managed to get to a speed of 116 mph – an incredible achievement for a car built in the early 20th century.
This particular vehicle has spent 10 years being restored. You can also see the likes of a 1935 Lagonda M35R and a 1924 Bentley 4.5 litre.
