We attended the London Classic Car Show on Friday 21st February. The show had moved to London Olympia from its previous home London Excel, and it works. Here are our top 10 cars from the show. I’ve rated them by those I’d most like to have in the mycarheaven car collection.
1956 Maserati 250F
Not only is this my favourite racing car of all time, this actual one is Stirling Moss’s (legend) 1956 Monaco winning car. How cool is that? Beautiful, and I’d so love to sit in it, and even better drive it.
Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato Continuation
Whats not to love? Apart from the price (£5m). In my opinion this is one of the most beautiful cars / art ever made by us human beings. Just exquisite.
The F40 was built to celebrate Ferrari’s 40th anniversary. A very fast berlinetta designed by Pininfarina. A legend. Raw, beautiful and I so want one. Super cool. One of the best Ferrari’s ever in our opinion.
What’s not to love. Iconic. The Enzo made huge waves through the industry when it debuted, and it remains one of Ferrari’s most loved modern models.
The McLaren M14D-01 was on display as a tribute to Bruce McLaren. Love the orange racing colours on the car. The M14D was designed by Gordon Coppuck and Jo Marquart and built for Andrea de Adamich in 1970. Again another racing car I’d love to drive.
1971 Porsche 911 ST Evocation
This was on the Paul Stevens stand. Great work by those chaps. This 1971 Porsche 911 ST Evocation, in Conda Green if you are interested, was exceptional and really caught my eye. Raw and purposeful, just how we like our cars. £119k and it’s yours, if it’s still available. Lovely.
1973 De Tomaso Pantera
What’s not to love about this Pantera? Love this car. In apple green. A very nice car design, nice colour and I bet it sounds awesome. #iwantoneofthose. Very very cool.
1955 Ford Thunderbird
One of our favourites from this years show. It was immaculate. Yours for £50k. That’s a bargain. 4026 miles only on the odometer. I did think a few times, should I buy this? But with a recent deposit put down on another car I don’t think I could have got away with this with the wife. Another time maybe. What a beautiful car. Read more on this car here.
1985 Audi S1 E2 Rally Car.
One of the most iconic models to grace both road and rally – the Audi Quattro. Mental. Just how we like our cars. 0-62mph in 3.1 seconds. Nuts. It was a car I looked at for some while and even when walking away I had to turn around a few times to grab one last look (the sign of a great and beautiful car).
1964 Fiat 500D
If you’ve never owned or driven a Fiat 500 I know, like me, you’ll have a soft spot in your heart for them. The Fiat 500 (original or new incarnation) are very cool cars, period. This Fiat 500 caught my eye, a rare right hand drive version with suicide doors and mint condition, 22, 000 miles and only 1 previous owner from new. How many of them eixst? Not many I bet. Very very cool.
