The unique Ferrari 166MM/212 Export ‘Uovo’, pictured above, is set to star at Hampton Court Palace's Concours of Elegance (31 August-2 September).

A car that's seldom seen in public, it was designed for Count Giannino Marzotto as the ultimate sports racing car of its day.

The aerodynamically efficient, lightweight design benefits from techniques learned by its designer, Franco Reggiani in his aeronautical training, and is around 150kg lighter than similar contemporary Ferraris – it even has a a reflection-free windscreen made of crystal.

This bespoke build also has a competition history and some race victories to its name, including one at the 1951 Giro della Toscana.

This is the final Ferrari 500 TRC produced – and the marque's last four-cylinder car

Another Prancing Horse with racing history is also coming to London – indeed, it scored class wins at the 12 Hours of Sebring and 24 Hours of Le Mans, both in 1957.

This Ferrari 500 TRC by Scaglietti is the last of its kind built and the last-ever four-cylinder Ferrari, named after the FIA 'C' racing regulations it was built to comply with.

That's not all. A one-of-14 365 California Spyder, a 1962 250GT SWB Berlinetta Scaglietti and a 275GTB Long Nose will be in attendance, too.

Coinciding with the Dino's 50th anniversary, an early L-series 246GT is also joining the Concours of Elegance line-up. 

Finally, the Ferrari GTO – a one-of-six 288GTO Prototype from 1983 of which three remain – will be at Hampton Court Palace, while a 2018 GTC4 Lusso ‘Tailor Made’ will bring the manufacturer's story up to date.
