London’s Savile Row – famous for its high-end tailoring – hosts a showcase of the rare and exotic retro car next week.
second Savile Row Square The promise is bigger than the 2022 event, with more cars and more supporting partners.
Events will take place on Wednesday 24th May 2023 and Thursday 25th May 2023 with kickoff at 10am and events still open – streets closed to normal traffic – open until 8pm on both days. Concours on Savile Row is free to attend, no tickets required.
Classical or electronic?
As the number of cars increases, Savile Row’s Concours will stretch the entire street, seeing cars paired with specific tailors. By 2023, the exhibition will also expand around the corner, into the area outside the Royal Academy of Arts in Burlington Gardens.
Vehicles on display this year will run the gamut from the 1957 Ferrari 250 GT Spyder Competizione to the all-new Aston Martin DBX707 SUV.
New brands participating include Callum Design with its restomod Vanquish 25, and RML with its short-wheelbase Ferrari-based hypercar. Electric vehicles will also be on display, including Lunaz’s Bentley S2 Continental and Everrati’s Superformance GT40.
Alfa Romeo is using the event to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Quadrifoglio badge, while Audi will showcase past and present Quattro all-wheel-drive models.
red carpet debut
The Czinger 21C supercar (above) and the McLaren Artura, which debuted in the UK last year, proved just how important the Savile Row race is.
On the first night of the event, EFG Private Bank and the Royal College of Art will host a Gala Dinner at the Collections Gallery. The Academy will also hold a roundtable discussion on the theme of “Beyond a car hobby, an investment-grade collector’s car that becomes a rolling work of art.”
Craft displays, live music and pop-up refreshment booths round off the event. The forecast looks good right now too…
