The UK’s finest concours d’elegance event will return to the exquisite surroundings of Henry VIII’s former home from 6-8 September, bringing with it a once-in-a-lifetime gathering of spectacular vehicles.
The Concours of Elegance’s main display of around 60 vehicles will be the focal point of the event, telling the story of the motor car from the 1890s right through to the modern day. Picking out icons and rarities from the world’s most famous car brands, including Lamborghini, Ferrari, Bugatti and Rolls-Royce, the Concours of Elegance is a celebration of craftsmanship, luxury and innovation.
Alongside the main display will be a number of carefully curated features, celebrating some of the finest marques and coachbuilders in the world. A number of 2018’s features will also be returning, including the Royal Automobile Club Trophy – contested by winners of the nation’s best car clubs – and the Future Classics class. Last year’s Future Classics included the unique Rolls-Royce Sweptail, the one-of-seven Aston Martin Vantage V600 and the McLaren Senna chassis #001.
The 2019 event will cement Concours of Elegance’s global reputation for gathering the finest cars in the world in one of the UK’s most stunning settings; the Fountain Gardens of Hampton Court Palace. With the gracious support of Concours of Elegance patron, His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent, no other UK motoring event offers the same prestige or world-class quality of vehicles. Less than a third of the cars on display in the Main Concours will be based in the UK, offering visitors a rare chance to see vehicles traditionally housed in the States or throughout Europe.
Andrew Evans, Concours of Elegance Director, said: “Plans are already well underway to create a Concours of Elegance to surpass all our previous events. Our Steering Committee of motoring experts has identified the cars worthy enough of a hallowed place within the Fountain Gardens, and we’re gearing up for a number of world-firsts in our special features. Add in a host of luxury partners, including our Presenting Partner, A. Lange & Söhne, and I’m certain that we’ve created an event that lives up to the incredibly high standards people expect from one of the world’s leading concours d’elegance events.”
