A Bugatti EB110 was just one of the incredible cars amongst a collection worth £35 million on the lawns of the Royal Honourable Artillery Company for the City Concours show.
Stratstone was in awe of all the cars at the show, but of course, there must be a top five…
1. Bugatti EB110
Produced in 1991 and considered the ultimate supercar of its day, the Bugatti EB110 is well-known for its incredible 'sledgehammer' spec. Michael Schumacher purchased a yellow EB110 Super Sport in 1994, which gave Bugatti some fantastic publicity, which he kept for almost 10 years until 2003.
The Bugatti's epic power comes via a six-speed gear box and it has a 60-valve, quad-turbo V12, which is fed through 12 individual throttle bodies.
2. Singer Porsche 911
911 was produced by Singer Vehicle Design, a company founded in 2009, that prides itself on preserving the world's most respected, premium, vehicles. The engine in the Singer is a work of art, which was hand built by Cosworth in the US. Based on the classic 3.6-litre flat-six, Cosworth took it and enlarged it to 3.9 litres.
The exterior is pristine, retro and sleek with polished aluminium, lustrous to the eye. On the inside, the materials and detailing of the interior is also exquisite, using the richest, softest aniline leather, hand-polished and embossed.
3. Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing
The Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing was designed as a two-seat coupe with distinctive gull-wing doors, which are hinged at the roof rather than the door. The car was produced as a toned-down version of a Grand Prix car, with the main body made of steel and an aluminium hood, doors and boot lid.
Immediately iconic when introduced at the New York Auto Show in 1954, The 300SL was the first ever direct fuel injected production model. The car is considered as one of the most collectible Mercedes-Benz models, due to low production numbers.
4. BMW M1
The BMW M1 was the first racing car produced by BMW, designed by Giorgetto Guigario, first commissioned by Lamborghini. Once Lamborghini was no longer in the financial position to carry on manufacturing the car, BMW reassumed control. This is one of BMW's rarest models, as only 453 production M1's were built.
5. Aston Martin Vanquish S
The Aston Martin Vanquish S promises more power and sharper handling with the same GT comfort.
Power was increased from 450 in the V12 Vanquish to 520 bhp in the Vanquish S. The appearance has also changed slightly with a different nose shape, raised boot lid, larger integrated spoiler and a small front splitter. The suspension, steering and brakes were also much sportier, thanks to having been incorporated from the 2004 option, the Sports Dynamic pack.
