THE ITALIAN SPIDERS
Buoyed by the success of their 2021 class, the Italian Berlinettas will return in 2022 with a collection of the most beautiful soft-top Italian sports cars ever created. Here, you’ll find names like Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo and Bizzarrini.
GREAT BRITISH HISTORY
They shaped the global automotive industry into what it is today. In this class, the British pioneers and innovators are celebrated.
GREAT MARQUES: MERCEDES-BENZ
Mercedes-Benz. This historic brand have made some of the most beautiful, fastest and era-defining vehicles. There will be a special line-up charting this brand’s journey from world-first to global powerhouse.
FINS & CHROME
No one does stop-and-stare styling like American cars of the ’50s and ’60s. Bedazzled with chrome bumpers, chrome hubcaps and chrome… everything, these behemoths hark back to an era of big displacement cruising.
COACHBUILT & CONCEPTS
The ultimate in rarity and exclusivity, this class is focused on the unique projects – either by design or by circumstance – that captivate the automotive world. It’s an eclectic gathering of one-off concept cars, unique Ferrari customer commissions and prototype proof-of-concepts that never made it into production.
The London Concours each year shines a light on one individual’s car collection; revealing the personal stories and immense passion behind it. In previous years we’ve welcomed an eclectic collection of Americana from Julian Balme and the ‘80s-heavy supercars of Harry Metcalfe. What car collection will it be this year…
ODE TO DUCATI
This year at London Concours, our four-wheeled icons will be joined by some of their two-wheeled brethren from one of the most evocative brands in the world. This line-up of Ducatis charts the most desirable sporting bikes of the last 50 years, from legends like the 750SS right up to the 2014 Ducati 1199 Superleggera.
The ‘90s were a golden era for Japanese cars, with the rally heroics of Mitsubishi and Subaru bolstered by the ability for millions to virtually race Japanese performance icons in the early iterations of gran turismo. This class celebrates the best of them, as well as those that came before and after.
