On the 9th of June, the City Concours took to Old Street where the finest motors were displayed amongst the city skyline of London. From super sporty to captivatingly classic, the event had a wide range of cars for the ultra-wealthy to enjoy. Here are Borro’s top picks in case you missed it!
The Jaguar Sport XJR-15
In 1990-92, 53 of these sleek sports cars were produced by Jaguar, each selling for just shy of £800,000. Oh, and they also happen to be the world’s first fully carbon-fibre road car. The specs: a 6 Litre Jaguar V12 engine, capable of 450 horsepower that allows the car to reach 60mph in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 191 mph. Sure, it’s not the fastest car on the road, but we still think its worthy of our attention.
2006 Maserati MC12
There are 50 of these magnificent Maserati’s out there, each of which were pre-sold for just over half a million pounds. The sharp nose and sleek curves of this car means it has a shorter breaking distance and a top speed of 205mph. This is also aided by its 6 Litre F140 V12 engine, with 620 horsepower – making it a little more powerful than the above Jaguar Sport.
2014 Pagani Huayra
Youthful and yellow – this Pagani Huayra attracted quite a crowd at the Concours. Perhaps it was the striking wing-like doors that caught the attention of visitors, giving it a unique edge over its surrounding motors. And sure, if you’ve got a spare £1 million lying around, why not invest it in this effortlessly elegant hyper car. With a top speed of 224mph and the ability to reach 0-60 in 3 seconds, it’s hard to imagine how the twin-turbo 6 litre V12 engine wouldn’t satisfy a need for speed.
2013 Ferrari 458 Speciale
You didn’t think our list would be complete without a Ferrari, did you? This car is an upgrade from the beloved 458 Italia. For instance, it’s got a much more powerful engine that can produce 597 horsepower that can reach 62 mph in just 3 seconds. You can currently get your hands on one of these for around £235,000.
