Among the line-up of Porsches is one of only 20 of the lightweight 356B Super 90 GTs ever built, plus a 1974 911 RS and the hybrid 918 Spyder. The manufacturer’s illustrious motorsport history will be well represented also, with a 910 of World Sportscar Championship fame, an ’87 Group C 962 plus a ’97 911 GT1 Evolution – the homologated road car that spawned the winner of that year’s Le Mans.
A total of seven McLaren grand prix cars will assemble on concours lawn. Courtesy of McLaren and car collector David Clark, on display will be MP4/8 from 1993 plus the West-livered MP4/12 and MP4/14 from ’97 and ’99 respectively.
The MP4/23 from 2008, the year that Lewis Hamilton won his first F1 world title, will be joined by the MP4/27 from ’12 – when the team scored its most recent win to date.
Notables from the rest of the concours entry include a BMW 507, MG Metro 6R4 and ’93 Ferrari F40 LM Michelotto alongside a Ferrari 250 GTO.
Max Hunt, chairman of judges, said: ‘Our third concours has attracted entrants from far and wide, including the United States, and the list of exhibitors is extremely varied.
‘During this, the 70th anniversary year of Porsche, we are also really pleased to have so many of Stuttgart’s finest on display - we can’t wait to see everyone at the event.’
