Our top ten cars from the 2014 Concours of Elegance

The Concours of Elegance is always such a wonderful event.  I so look forward to it now every year, and the cars we see stay with me for a lifetime.  Here are 10 cars that stood out for me, in no particular order.

1931 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Touring ‘Flying Star’

The Flying Star is a legendary show car bodies with special care by Touring of Milan.  Beautifully painted and trimmed in off white, it was built for a young heiress whose father had made his fortune in coal.  The young lady’s intention was to have a beautiful car to enjoy on the road and also enter into Concours events.  This car won the 3rd Concours of Elegance.  So so cool and stunningly beautiful.

1938 Talbot-Lago T150C-SS Figoni Falaschi Coupe

Also known as the teardrop Coupe. So so striking.  We love this car.  This is 1 of only 10 examples of the style 9220 New York built on the short Talbot-Lago T150C-SS chassis, and only 1 of 3 fitted with a sunroof.

1964 Iso Bizzarrini A3C

This is the competition version of the Iso Griffo.  Only 29 were built to much success in the 60s.  We love how this looks and how low it rides.  Super cool.

Only 1 of 10 bodied by Rollston, and can pull 120 mph.  Wow.

1961 Ferrari F12 TRS

A one-off Ferrari F12 Barchetta.  It just goes to show that for the wealthiest customers, even a £239,000 Ferrari coupe isn’t good enough.  An anonymous Ferrari owner commissioned the bespoke model, which is based on the F12 Berlinetta and said to be inspired by the 1957 250 Testa Rossa.
