More than 100 unique and striking cars in the world were presented at the fourth running of the London Concours that was held on the 19-20th August. The event was staged in the spectacular surroundings of the Honourable Artillery Company Gardens in London.

The main concours event classes included ‘Speed of Sand’ –dedicated to the world of hot rods – ‘Convertible: The Golden Era’, ‘The Pursuit of Speed’ and ‘Lancia Legends’.

Best of Show honors for the London Concours were awarded to a 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS Spider.

In November 1967, this 330 GTS Spider was displayed at the Torino Motor Show. It was then presented at various venues before it was eventually sold in 1969 to Jamie Wyeth in Pennsylvania, US.

The Ferrari then transferred ownership in the mid-1970s to Carl Cantera of Wilmington, Delaware, a client of Ferrari dealer FAF Motors in Tucker, Georgia. It was shown by Mr Cantera successfully for over two decades during which the body of the 330 GTS Spider was restored to concours level.
