Saturday 3rd June 2017 saw the third Nottingham Car Café meet of the year. After the success of the first two Nottingham meets - despite the unpleasant weather trying it best to ruin the occasion, June's event was finally welcomed with glorious sunshine.
The weather certainly bought the numbers in with 107 cars lined up already by 8:30, with 168 attending the meet in total - with an eclectic array of stunning cars. Unsurprisingly, convertibles were out in force. A bright Porsche 911 (991) Turbo S certainly stood out with its bright yellow paintwork amongst an elegant Bentley Azure - housing a colossal 6.75-litre V8 engine. A number of renowned Mercedes SLK roadsters were also represented in strong numbers along with a selection of fine Mk1 Lotus Elise's, an elegant Aston Martin V8 Vantage and bold convertible V8 Mustang.
With the meet in full swing and all the owners enjoying the variation of cars on offer, shortly after 9am the crowds were drawn towards the entrance to the car park as one of the rarest cars in existence made quite an arrival. One of only five made - the mind-blowing, 1200bhp, 258mph Bugatti Veyron Super Sport WRE had people's jaws hitting the floor.
WRE stands for 'World Record Edition' as this particular Bugatti Veyron is an example of the fastest production car in the world, which has had to be physically limited to its 258mph top speed - it can actually go faster without the limiter. With a black exposed carbon body complemented with orange detailing, this world record Veyron certainly stood out. With a circa £2million price tag, this particular Bugatti Veyron certainly made an epic addition to the Car Café meet. If that wasn't enough, it was accompanied by perhaps the most famous Bond car ever - the glorious Aston Martin DB5.
Again, unbelievably rare and instantly recognisable due to the strong connection with the James Bond franchise and the glorious symphony made by its 4.0-litre DOHC Straight Six engine, this classic Aston Martin DB5 also had the Car Café crowd in awe, too. Although cliché, it's fair to say, this incredible pairing of cars certainly stole the show!
Elsewhere, enthusiast cars of all car culture joined in the meet with iconic Fast Fords, various versions of the Nissan Skyline GT-R and a striking F80 BMW M3 - finished in white, compliments by BMW M colour detailing - the June meet was perhaps the most significant yet.
Car Café and Stratstone would like to acknowledge all those who attended the June meet and cannot wait for future events.
