1911 Beast of Turin beats supercars at London Concours


Out of the 125 cars at the City of London event, including Ferrari 250 SWB and Bugatti Veyron, Best of Show went to the remarkable 1911 Fiat

The 135bhp, 300bhp, 28.5-litre 1911 Fiat S76 ‘Beast of Turin’ land speed record car from 1911 was awarded Best of Show at the second London Concours, held on the cricket pitch of the Honourable Artillery Company in the City of London.

The event has grown significantly, with 125 top-level cars displayed on the cricket pitch of the Honourable Artillery Company in the City of London – compared with 80 cars at last year’s inaugural event.

Once again the variety and quality of cars has shone through, with the more obvious (but popular) supercars such as Lamborghini Miura, Ferrari F40, McLaren F1 and Bugatti Veyron joined by such wonderful rarities as Fiat 8V Supersonic, De Tomaso Mangusta and even a Ferrari 250 GT SWB ‘SEFAC hot rod’ – easily the most valuable of all the cars on display.
