Surrounded by ever increasing London City skyscrapers, the five-acre green oasis of the Artillery Gardens staged the London Concours for the seventh year. Using the 18th Century Armoury House as a backdrop, just under 80 cars spread over eight classes featured throughout the three-day event, June 6-8. On day 2, RS Day, 50 Porsche RS gathered to swell the numbers commemorating half a century of this iconic marque, with the final day being devoted to contemporary Supercars attracting 55 of today’s most sought after machines.
Most of the classes attracted post-war entries with there being, surprisingly, only one true exception, a 1935 Rolls-Royce Wraith Sedanca Coupe’ by Gurney Nutting originally owned by George Formby who at the time was Britain’s highest-paid entertainer. The Wraith had been completely restored 10 years ago. With the other three pre-war examples on show not quite as they were first constructed, but nonetheless interesting examples, if you are a purist you may want to skip the next paragraph.
