Around 100 vehicles were on display this past weekend as the London Concours was staged on the five-acre show field of the Honourable Artillery Company gardens in England.
Best of Show honors for the concours d’elegance were awarded to a 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS Spider that first was unveiled at the Torino Motor Show. After that debut, the car was displayed at various events and in 1969 was sold to painter Jamie Wyeth, who lived in Pennsylvania.
About a year later Wyeth sold the car through a Georgia Ferrari dealership to Carl Cantera of Wilmington, Delaware, and Cantera owned the car for more than two decades, during which he had it restored to concours quality, according to the London Concours report.
Current ownership of the award-winning cars was not reported by concours officials.
Other major award winners at the London event included a Jaguar XK120 FCH (Pursuit of Speed), an Aston Martin DB2/4 (Great Marques: Aston Martin); a Lamborghini Espada (Great Marques: Lamborghini), a Lamborghini Diablo VT (Era of the Supercar), a Facel Vega HK500 (Lost Marques), a Ford V8 Streamliner (Speed of Sand), a Lancia Stratos HF Group IV (Lancia Legends), and a Lamborghini Espada (People’s Choice).
Featured classes included 10 Ferrari Dinos, each in a different color, and former Aston Martin and Jaguar designer Ian Callum was honored as “The Collector.”
