Gathered on the lawns of the Royal Honourable Artillery Company, near to the Barbican, are more than 80 outstanding vehicles – all hand-picked by event organisers and cars that you’re unlikely to have seen in the flesh before.
Called City Concours, the event is open for two days only – today and tomorrow (June 8 and 9) – and is a chance to get up close and personal with a range of Ferraris, Aston Martins and Jaguars that wowed on the road, track and in historic collections.
