Heveningham Hall Concours d’Elegance winners in photosby Web Editor on 12th July 2017
The second Heveningham Hall Concours d’Elegance brought some fine metal to Suffolk last weekend.
Fifty cars covered the plush greens of the manor house with a century of motoring design, all vying for category honours in the concours. Ian Callum, former TWR designer and current director of design at Jaguar, J Mays, former group vice president of global design and chief creative officer at Ford Motor Company, and Dakar competitor Max Hunt comprised the impressive judging panel.
The pre-war category was led by a twin-supercharged 1935 Frazer Nash, beating a Frazer Nash TT replica and 1931 Alfa Romeo 8C, while Ford beat Ferrari yet again in the post war category – a 1965 Ford GT40 saw off a 1961 Ferrari 250 SWB Competizione and earlier 250 Cabriolet. A special category was reserved for more recent supercars, including a Mercedes CLK GTR Roadster, Porsche 959, McLaren P1 GTR and a brace of Bugattis, but it was the original supercar that reigned victorious: a 1971 Lamborghini Miura. Second went to a Ferrari LaFerrari, 43 years its junior.
