It has taken me a while to get this post done, as life is busy, I have several videos to upload to out YouTube channel, but now I have got around to the review on the the recent and wonderful London Concours 2023, that was again held at the beautiful and historic Honourable Artillery Company estate in London. I attended on the 6th June which was the VIP, Press & owners day, and what a day.
You can see here our favourite pictures from the wonderful London Concours 2023. All of our photos are here on our Facebook Album here.

Personally I like watching videos more than reading, so if that’s you as well, do make sure that you are subscribed to our YouTube Channel.
I really do love this event. At this year‘s event the concours classes that they had were:

The London Concours event, like its other show the Concours of Elegance always has an abundance of beautiful classic cars, supercars and hypercars. Amazingly there are always cars on display or several cars on display that I’ve never seen before, which is always a delight and why I love this show. I also love the grounds that the event takes place, the Honourable Artillery Company estate in London is beautiful.
Here are my favourite cars from each concours class. What did you think? If you attended the show, did you prefer another car to my choice?
Make green great again
Just thought this shade of green was the best green on show of all the cars, and what a beautiful shape.
What a beautiful car. Just so cool. Love it.
Evolution of Aero
If I had to choose one car and one car only to own, drive, then, it would have to be the Ferrari F40.
Again the car would I most like to own and drive, it have to be the 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB.
I’d never seen one of these cars before. Not surprising, as this was the first time the WSM had been seen in public since the 1970s.
Built to race for the road
All the cars were not on show on the day that I attended. However, a clear winner for me is a 1992, Porsche 959 Komfort. For me, it is one of my most iconic and desired cars.
60 years of Lamborghini
So hard to choose a winner here with three of my favourite Lamborghinis of all time on display. We had to 1968 Lamborghini 400 GT 2 +2 (above), a 1997 Lamborghini Diablo SV and a 1968 Lamborghini Miura. For me, the car that I would want most, money no object of course, would be the 1968 Lamborghini Miura (below). In this green, it is an absolute beauty.
Again, a very tricky decision when there was the 1985 Ferrari Testarossa Targa (yellow), which is one-of-a-kind, the 1959 Chevrolet Corvette C1, the 1971 Montiverdi 375L High Speed Fissore, and a 1957 BMW 507. For me it was a very close call, but the 1957 BMW 507 just nudged above the Montiverdi 375L High Speed Fissore.
Car of the show was not one of my choices, but that probably highlights why I’m not a judge, was the 1991 Schuppan 962 CR P1 (below).
The London Concours was a thoroughly enjoyable show as it has been every year that I have attended. It was also really good to award five of our readers, a pair of tickets each to attend the show, as they won a pair of tickets by entering our competition.
