Car list confirmed for Windsor 2016

Hispano Suiza Dubonnet Xenia

Sixty of the world’s rarest cars will gather in the exclusive Quadrangle at Windsor Castle this September – the full list of which has just been revealed by the Concours of Elegance’s Steering Committee of motoring experts.  A 1900 Daimler 6hp owned by Her Majesty The Queen represents one of the earliest cars in attendance, first bought by King Edward VII as the first Royal motorcar.

A car like no other is the 1938 Hispano Suiza Dubonnet Xenia, an art-deco masterpiece designed by Jacques Saoutchik complete with unusual parallel sliding doors and an aviation-themed interior. From 1958 is another coachbuilt rarity, the Ferrari 250 GT Pininfarina Series I Cabriolet – one of just 40 built.

Sometimes the stories behind the cars are what makes them great, including the 1966 Mini Radford Mini de Ville GT in the Concours. Bought by Beatle, George Harrison, the car was painted with a psychedelic livery for the film Magical Mystery Tour. Also in the Main Concours is a 1986 Ferrari Testarossa Spider Valeo – the only factory-built convertible Testarossa in existence. It was especially built for Gianni Agnelli when he took over Fiat S.p.A in the ‘80s.

The Concours of Elegance traditionally tells the story of the automobile from start to finish, and the very latest car in this year’s Main Concours is the one-of-seven Touring Supeleggera Disco Volante Spyder. Based on the rare Alfa Romeo 8C Spider, the Disco Volante is hand-crafted from aluminium and carbon fibre.
