Concours Of Elegance @ St James's And Marlborough House

st james posterVintage car lovers will get a unique opportunity to see 60 of the world's rarest and most beautiful historic cars at the royal palaces of St James's and Marlborough House at September's Concours of Elegance.

The cars are held in private collections but the owners have been invited by HRH Prince Michael of Kent, following last year's inaugural concours held in Windsor Castle. Cars taking part in the Concours this year include the 1955 Ferrari 250 GT, 1940 Aston Martin type c  and the 1928 Bugatti type 35b. See a full list of the cars attending.

To celebrate Lamborghini's 50th birthday, there will also be 50 of Sant'Agata's finest, including a 400GT Interim, a LM002 'Rambo Lambo', a Countach and newly-restored Miura. Motorbike enthusiasts won't miss out either, with a collection of pre-war BMW motorcycles including the rare 1929 R63 OHV sport and  a 1937 R17 OHV, one of 484 manufactured and BMW's fastest bike until 1952.

Visitors will also get the opportunity to wander around the grounds of Marlborough House which are usually not open to the public. VIP tickets are available which will allow visitors to meet the owners (including Prince Michael of Kent) of the cars on show.

Public tickets for Friday 6 and Saturday 7 September are priced at £35. See the event website on how to buy tickets.
