The London Concours 2020 - Report & Gallery
To mark the UK’s first major automotive event to take place since February, The Apex looks back at this past week's London Concours at the historic Honourable Artillery Company Headquarters in the City. With social distancing in place, reduced audience capacity and almost as much hand sanitiser as champagne, the 'new norm' didn't hold back a great 4th running of the event.
With over 100 cars on display and classes ranging from the ‘Speed of Sand’, dedicated to the world of hot rods, to 'Lancia Legends', which featured four Lancia 037 competition cars, there was plenty to whet one's automotive appetite. Outside of the concours classes, highlights included a celebration of the Ferrari Dino, with 10 different examples are on display, each finished in a different shade, from Grigio Titanio to Viola Metallizzato, as well as the personal car collection of famed automotive designer Ian Callum CBE, who we interviewed a few weeks ago.
