The Concours of Elegance returns to Windsor Castle from 2-4 September, as some of the world’s most incredible cars take residence in the Quadrangle for a celebration of automotive elegance, style and passion.
With the gracious permission of Her Majesty The Queen, Windsor Castle will play host to sixty of the rarest and most exclusive cars ever produced, and today, with just 15 days to go until the event opens, Concours of Elegance has rounded up 15 very special automotive highlights.
From iconic pre-1914 automobiles to special sports cars of the 21st century, each of the Concours of Elegance cars has a story to tell. The Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Zagato Spyder on display, for example, is one of the most successful racing cars of all time, having won Le Mans four times in a row and the Mille Miglia three times in succession.
Also on display at Windsor is the Ferrari Testarossa Spider Valeo, which is a truly one-of-a-kind classic. It’s the only factory-built Testarossa convertible ever made, having been specially produced for Gianni Agnelli exactly 30 years ago.
The most recent car in the Concours of Elegance comes from coachbuilders Touring Superleggera, with the one-of-seven Disco Volante Spyder. Based on the Alfa Romeo 8C Spider, but with a specially crafted aluminium and carbon composite body inspired by the 1952 Alfa Romeo C52 Disco Volante.
