St James’s Concours of Elegance 2013: “All 60 vehicles are winners”

That’s how the programme describes the priceless rarities gracing the lawns of Marlborough House. And how could there be a ‘winner’ in a concours entry that included a Ferrari GTO, a ‘Blower’ Bentley, the Roberto Rossellini Ferrari 375 MM and so many Pebble Beach-level, pre-War one-offs?

Oh, and let’s not forget the red-with-white-stripes 1970 Porsche 917, the very car that gave Porsche its first overall victory at Le Mans. Or the pair of limited-edition Ferraris inspired by demand in the USA for a convertible – with race-track performance: the blue 1961 250 GT California Spider and the silver 1967 275 GTB/4 N.A.R.T. Spyder.

Enough of the listing. Browse through our gallery of photos and admire the coachbuilder’s art, marvelling at the organising committee’s skill at enticing so many wonderful cars to London, just 12 months after its first event at Windsor Palace.
