With the most prestigious judging panel in the Chubb Insurance Concours’ history and a superb line up of classes covering everything from 100 years of Aston Martin and 50 years of Porsche and Lamborghini to Streamlining, Berlinetta, Pininfaria and two motorcycle categories, the flood of entries for 2013 has been capped at 95 vehicles.
In an exceptional year of entries from across the 11 classes, some highlight models include a one-of-a-kind Lancia Flaminia 3C 2.8 Speciale (The Art of Design: Pininfarina class), a truly original and never restored Ferrari 500 Mondial (Post-war competition greats), a one- off example of an original eight-cylinder touring Bugatti T38 (Graceful Pre-War Motoring class) and an SS Airline Coupé (The Beauty of Streamlining class) – thought to be the only example of its kind.
Two motorcycle classes feature in this year’s Concours, ‘One-offs and Oddball Motorcycles’ and ‘Sporting Motorcycles from the 1920s to the 1970s’, which features an extremely rare Ducati 750ss – a ‘round case’ supersport and to this day the only Ducati to be hand-assembled in the factory race shop.
