Classic & Sports Car – 10 Ferrari icons to dazzle at London Concours

From 166 Inter to LaFerrari, this summer’s London Concours is set to celebrate the Prancing Horse in serious style.

Ferrari has been announced as one of the Great Marques at the central London event held at the Honourable Artillery Company HQ on 5-6 June.

This means that there will be a concours class dedicated to the marque, featuring 10 iconic models – and, as the Daytona above shows, it won’t necessarily be a sea of red.

The story will start with the ninth roadgoing Ferrari ever built, a one-of-38 166 Inter and this classic, developed in parallel with the 166MM racer, is certain to turn heads and attract much attention.

The 166 Inter established the front-engined, V12-powered layout that Ferrari remained faithful to for years, as seen in cars including the 275GTB, 365GTB/4 Daytona, 365GTC/4 and 599GTO, all of which visitors can expect to see in the capital in June.

Also confirmed is a Ferrari 288GTO, only 272 of which were built.

The full list, at present, is:

  • Ferrari 166 Inter
  • Ferrari 275GTB
  • Ferrari 365GTB/4 ‘Daytona’
  • Ferrari 365GTC
  • Ferrari 288GTO
  • Ferrari Testarossa
  • Ferrari 512BB
  • Ferrari F40
  • Ferrari 599GTO
  • Ferrari LaFerrari
     

It should be quite a spectacle, then.

“Which brand deserves the title of ‘Great Marque’ more than Ferrari?” said Andrew Evans, London Concours Director.

“Leaving aside its seven decades of top-level motorsport victories, Ferrari has a stable of road-car legends stretching right back to the 1940s. To be so consistently excellent, to have created a brand with such global dominance and to show no signs of slowing down – Ferrari is the very definition of automotive greatness, and we’re delighted to be showcasing some of its best work at the London Concours.”
