The Concours of Elegance at Hampton Court Palace brings together a selection of 60 of the rarest cars from around the world, many of which will never have been seen before in the UK.

In addition, AMOC has been working hard, and pulling many strings, to arrange separate displays of the some of the finest Aston Martins on the planet.

For the Aston Martin enthusiast, highlights of Concours of Elegance will include:

  • Display by Aston Martin Lagonda, including the new DBS Superleggera and Vantage, DB11 and special edition Rapide AMR;
  • The DB4 60th Anniversary Celebration Display - A stunning display of every DB4 variant: DB4 prototype, DB4 Series 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 plus a DB4 GT, DB4 GT Zagato and DB4 Bertone Jet. The recently launched DB4 GT Continuation will also form part of the display;
  • Display by Aston Martin Heritage specialist, Nicholas Mee;
  • The following vehicles will participate In the main Concours:
         - 1937 Aston Martin 15/98 Tourer
         - 1939 Lagonda V12 Rapide Drophead Coupé
         - 1950 Aston Martin DB2
         - 1954 Aston Martin DB3S Team Car “62EMU”
         - 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Convertible
  • The AMOC display on Saturday will comprise a fantastic array of vehicles of all ages including some rarities including the 2 Litre Sports (“DB1”), Short Chassis Vantage Volante (2 of the 3 manufactured) and DB6 Mk2 Vantage Volante.

If previous years are anything to go by, Concours of Elegance is fast becoming one of the leading concours events in Europe.

10 days to go to Concours of Elegance - 10 DB4s in the AMOC 60th Anniversary Celebratory Display.

Worth noting that this will be the first time ever that every DB4 variant has been displayed together.

Such a pitty i can't make it. Would have loved to take my dad there to motivate him to work on his DB4 series 1 again as he own it for about 17 years but has never driven it.

Very excited about this. Last year was great and this year may surpass that if the weather holds out!

Quick question, is it still possible to join the AMOC display on Saturday? I assume it's rather like a couple of years ago, meet in park and drive into the gardens?
Still burning hydrocarbons just for fun!

Rich,

At the last count there were just a few places left so suggest you apply quickly. Yes, similar format to previous years at Hampton Court.

The sharp-eyed amongst you will spot that I missed out the Series 3. Don't worry, we have one. We just don't have photos at the moment.

Fantastic that Scaramanga and his Dad are coming over from the Netherlands.

Looking forward to meeting you on Friday.

Thanks for bearing with me.

The purists will hate me but once you have driven it (and I now have) you will agree that Car 10, the DB4 GT Continuation, fully deserves its position in the DB4 blood line.

Mark and I hope to meet many of you at Hampton Court over the weekend. Look out for the guy with the permanent grin!

Safely tucked up tonight with some worthy bed fellows!

With thanks to the considerable generosity of their owners, I am delighted to say that the AMOC DB4 60th Anniversary Display appears to have been a success. I hope many of you got to see the display in person.
