Concours of Elegance revealed some legendary vehicle models, that were set on stage in the 2015 event, that include a 1905 Star Gordon Bennett racer to the 2015 Touring Superleggera Berlinetta Lusso.
The Concours itself started in 2012 with the idea to show the world's finest vehicles ath the Windsor Castle. Since the first Concours, it moved to St James's Palace and Hampton Court Palace, before heading to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh for this year's event.
And for 2015 the event demonstrated some really impressive vehicles. Let's start with the elders. The 1905 Star shows one of the earliest models on display, that was originally created to represent Britain at the Gordon Bennett Cup. The vehicle comes with a 10-liter engine and a top speed of 100 km/h (62 mph), which was a really impressive achievement for engineers from that era.
Further, the 1939 Delahaye Type 165 Figoni et Laschi comes to remind, that it was one of the most impressive vehicles back in the 1930s. In fact, it is still impressive and today, isn't it? It was first displayed at 1939 World's Fair in NY and only six of these 12-cylinder models were created and the model, showed at the 2015 Concours of Elegance is the most beautiful of all six vehicles.
The next beauty is the 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 NART Spider. In fact, this is the one of only ten ever produced. It was designed to kickstart the 275 GTB/4 sales in America and it became one of the most sought-after Ferrari models.
The Concours continues with the 1979 BMW M1 and the 1995 Ferrari F40 LM, before showing the youngest model at the show this year, the 2015 Touring Superleggera Berlinetta Lusso, which is a Ferrari F12 influenced hand-crafted coupe with a production of only five vehicles. Impressive, isn't it?
The Concours really shows some wonderful and truly beautiful vehicles, that bring pleasure of just watching them. We hope, that everyone, who is interested in such cars have the chance to be an owner of such beauties!
