Our top ten Ferrari’s from the 2014 Concours of Elegance

concours-of-elegance-logo-darkWhat an event the 2014 Concours of Elegance was.  The organisers and car owners deserve a big round of applause for the wonderful event they put on.  With an abundance of beautiful and exquisite cars at there, we thought we’d look back at the top 10 Ferrari’s (in our opinion of course).  Take a look and we’d love to hear if you’d have ranked differently.

Mini and Touring Superleggera Concept

Mini and Touring Superleggera, the tradition-steeped design and coach building house based in Milan, brought this MINI Superleggera™ Vision to the UK for the first time at the highly exclusive Salon Privé and I tell you what, it was some vision.  It is a lovely piece of design, if only they could make it.  This design concept is just that, it’s not a driver, what a shame!  What do you make of it?
