The stunning celebration of World-Class Classic cars returned to historical venue Hampton Court Palace and as the organiser predicted it was “the biggest and best yet” in 6 years.

Here you can have a taste of what this year’s Concours of Elegance offered to its visitors, car club guests and car owners. A range of historic vehicles from the 19th century (1896) through to the present day, many of which have never been seen before in the UK. Highlights of the Concours include the first ever Bentley to race at Le Mans, a 3 Litre, and the ‘Baillon Barn Find’ Maserati A6G 2000, which is making its UK debut.

I visited the Concours of Elegance 2017 show on Sunday to celebrate one of Britain’s most famous car manufacturers – Bentley. All the guests of that day  among the other fascinating historical cars were able to peruse 90 of Crewe’s finest models of the most iconic Bentleys throughout history, from Blowers to Mulsannes.

As the Concours of Elegance Patron, HRH Prince Michael of Kent GCVO, said: ” I very much hope you enjoy your time with us”, and YES… we certainly did.
