2018 proved to be a particularly good vintage with legendary cars such as a Ferrari F40 LM and an immaculate Lamborghini Miura S — the latter actually belonged to singer Rod Stewart. There were some scarcely seen machines too.
The forward-thinking Bugatti Type 44 Aerodynamique, Bizzarrini 53000 GT America, and the world’s oldest Aston Martin were real treats for enthusiasts. Only amongst such prestigious company could something like a pristine air-cooled 911 look relatively pedestrian.
The Porsche that garnered the most attention was a 356A Carrera Speedster, one of 152 ever made and just one of four right-hand drive models. To mark Porsche's 70th anniversary, a special Masters concours composed of historic models will take place later this weekend. This very 356 has won awards all over the world and aims to add to its trophy cabinet.
Guests also get their opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice winner, a trophy secured by the exceptionally rare Ferrari 250 LM. A 1933 Bugatti Type 55 Roadster won 2018’s Best of Show trophy.
