London Concours 2023 Tickets on Sale
Tickets are now on sale to the London Concours 2023, the capital’s leading automotive summer garden party. With a new line-up of special features and a completely revamped hospitality offering, the London Concours refines its formula of spectacular cars, a beautiful historic venue and exquisite City-based entertainment more than ever before.
The cars remain the centrepiece of the event, curated this year into a line-up including a number of cars designed to go racing, but built for the road. In the worlds of rallying, endurance racing or touring cars it’s often a rule that a manufacturer must produce a certain number of roadgoing versions of a car before it is allowed to race, and it’s these extraordinary cars that make up the ‘Built to Race. For the Road’ class.
Elsewhere the London Concours looks at the ‘Evolution of Aero’ from elegant streamliners of the 1930s through to ground effect road cars and downforce-laden supercars with enormous rear spoilers and front splitters. It’s a visual representation of how aerodynamics became a key component of modern performance car design. In ‘Bespoke Automotive’, the one-off creations of manufacturer or specialist coachbuilding firms shine, transforming well-known models into unique or rare works of automotive art.
‘Grand Tourisme’ is a celebration of the very best of French GT and sports cars while ‘Golden Age Coupes’ celebrates the most beautiful, timeless sports car designs of the ‘50s and ‘60s. In a slight change of pace we take in ‘The Cars that Built Land Rover’ and ’60 Years of Lamborghini’ in a celebration that takes in the greatest V12-powered Lamborghinis, from the 350GT right through to the Aventador.
Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th will be highlighted by a special feature, unique to that day of the show only. On Wednesday, the London Concours pays tribute to the Porsche 911 RS, a performance benchmark for more than 50 years. From the early 2.7 RS right through to the turbocharged intensity of GT2 RS, over 50 examples will enter the Honourable Artillery Company for this special display. And on Thursday, it’s Supercar Day, with 50 of the latest performance cars joining the normal London Concours features.
Outside of the automotive displays, London Concours is launching a new ‘Club Concours’ hospitality experience. Delivered with the help of hospitality partner Searcys, one of the oldest catering businesses in the world, the ‘Club Concours’ is a vibrant hub of activity with meticulously prepared food and drink at its heart. Guests are welcomed with a champagne reception, can enjoy an ‘al fresco’ lunch at their leisure and see out the day with an Afternoon Cream Tea. Drinks partners, from Veuve Clicquot to local craft beer producers, will be providing refreshments throughout.
The ‘Club Concours’ schedule of music, automotive-themed talks and pop-up theatre gives this exclusive enclosure a personality all of its own, becoming the perfect base from which to explore the extraordinary collection of automotive icons.
Tickets to the London Concours 2023 can be purchased here, priced from £35.
