The Concours of Elegance celebrated its most memorable running yet, with record numbers of guests enjoying the finest line-up of vehicles seen in the UK across three days of glorious sunshine at Hampton Court Palace.
The event welcomed nearly 1,000 cars in total, charting the full evolution of luxury and innovation in automotive from the pioneers right through to the modern day. The Bell Sport & Classic stand presented the stunning 330 LMB Project, the gloriously green (Verde Chiaro) Ferrari 330 GTC body that is one of our latest restoration projects and looked simply perfect on the lawns and the potent 1975 Kremer Porsche RSR.
The ‘Best in Show’ award, voted by the owners of the cars on display, went to a unique art deco Voisin C-27 Aérosport. Designed and built in 1934 by one of the greatest geniuses of the 20th Century, Gabriel Voisin, the C-27 Aérosport exhibits many traits of Voisin’s aviation background. The provocative car was created for the 1934 Paris Motor Show but didn’t quite hit the mark in terms of sales. After the expo, two roadsters were built on shortened Aérodyne chassis – which became known as the C27, and its glorious Art Deco styling captivated the heart, a collaborate between Voisin and André Noël-Noël Telmont, an architect who had met Voisin during their education.
