During the long summer months, London often sees a rise in the number of supercars parked up amongst its streets as many overseas motorists opt to spend some time in the growing capital.
The fifth Supercar Showdown is one of the best shows in the UK to see a number of high-performance vehicles.
A colleague of mine once said that cars are for driving, not wrapping in cotton wool only to be discovered decades later in a barn with just 100 miles on the clock. I agree; a moving car takes on a whole new persona to one standing still – the lines of the car, often so meticulously designed with the aid of a wind tunnel, really come into their own when you see a car fly past you on a motorway or at a track day event.
So it was interesting to see The Telegraph picking up on something I had noticed gaining popularity as an idea for some time; the crazy idea (surely?) that classic cars are an investment.
The doors have now officially closed on Autosport International for another year, and it’s safe to say that this year’s show kicked off in style!
The likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini and other supercar marques will be coming down to Beaulieu on Bank Holiday Monday (August 5th) for a showdown.
