Set to become the UK’s most celebrated Concours, the event will feature 60 of the finest and most historic motor cars from around the world. Open to the public on the 8th and 9th of September to advance ticket holders only, the Concours will also feature a display of “Royal” cars, along with a “Classic and Modern” display by leading motor manufacturers, including Jaguar, Land Rover, McLaren, and Bentley. Over the weekend, visitors can also enjoy a variety of displays in the grounds from different owners clubs and associations, such as The Royal Automobile Club and the Aston Martin Owners Club.
Although this inaugural event will not feature an automobile auction, RM will be in support throughout the weekend and will host an owner’s barbeque on the evening of Saturday 8th September at the five-star Coworth Park Hotel. RM will also display two early entries for its eagerly anticipated October 31st London sale at Coworth Park over the entire three days of the event.
Peter Wallman, Car Specialist, RM Europe says, “We are absolutely delighted to announce our partnership with the Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance. This new event is a wonderful celebration of the world’s finest automobiles and for it to take place in such exclusive surroundings in this, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year, is simply fantastic. It is a perfect fit alongside the other select and extremely high profile motoring events around the world with which RM has an association and we are proud to be involved and help raise funds for important charitable causes.”
In addition to acting as the official collector car auction house partner of the event, RM will also have a presence on the Concours field with three entries on display having been restored by RM’s award-winning restoration division in Canada, RM Auto Restoration. Among the magnificent entries on show will be an exquisite 1931 Daimler Double-Six 50 Corsica Drophead Coupe, a stunning 1933 Duesenberg Model SJ Beverly Berline by Murphy, and a breathtaking 1933 Delage D8S de Villars Roadster.
