1995 McLaren F1 GTR at Concours of Elegance 2020

Here’s a cool video of the 1995 McLaren F1 GTR, no. 07R, that finished 5th at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1995. Believe it or not it’s now registered to be driven on public roads.

Here’s a cool video of the 1995 McLaren F1 GTR, no. 07R, that finished 5th at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1995. Believe it or not it’s now registered to be driven on public roads. Here we hear more about this historic car from the Concours of Elegance presenters and driver.

Following the F1’s initial launch as a road car in 1995, race teams -including those owned by Ray Bellm and Thomas Bscher – managed to convince Mclaren to build racing variants of the model to compete in the BPR Global GT Series. This mighty race car was named the F1 GTR, and two further versions were developed in 1996 and 1997.

The FI GTR was a custom-built competition machine featuring a modified engine-management system that increased power output. However, with racing regulations dictating the use of air restrictors, power from the BMW
6.0-litre V12 was reduced to 592bhp at 7500rpm. Changes were also made to the suspension, aerodynamics, interior body panels (with the addition of air vents to the nose and sides, plus a massive, adjustable wing). The F1 GTR created so much downforce that it was claimed the car could drive upside down along a tunnel at 100mph.

The F1 GTR became most famous for its success in the 1995 Le Mans 24 Hours, where it ranked 1st, 3rd, 4th and 13th, beating off stiff competition from purpose-built prototypes and more established manufacturers. This result meant that McLaren was, and remains, the only manufacturer to have claimed the unofficial Triple Crown of Motorsport – victory at the Le Mans 24 Hours, Monaco Grand Prix and Indianapolis 500.

Mark Blundell, who finished fourth at Le Mans, said of the Fl GTR that “it was never designed to be a race car, so in many respects it wasn’t the best-balanced car in the world”. He was, however, complementary of the engine: “The saving grace of the car was the BMW V12. It was incredibly impressive in that you could be in sixth gear at 2000rpm and the thing would just pull like a train.And in the wet that is great,as you can run a higher gear and it cuts out some of that traction issue.”

In total, only nine Fl GTRs were built for the 1995 season, and this example, chassis 07R, crossed the finish line in 5th place at Le Mans. It was originally built for the Giroix Racing Team, which campaigned the McLaren Fl GTR in the BPR in 1995 and finished 13th in the team championship.

Interestingly, some of the F1 GTRs were converted to street use after they were no longer eligible in international racing series, 07R is now registered to be driven on a public highway, which means the air restrictors have been removed and mufflers added. Passenger seats have also been fitted and the suspension has been adjusted in order to provide additional ground clearance.

The 1969 Porsche 917 at the Concours of Elegance 2020

Here’s a cool video of the 1969 Porsche 917 that won car of the show at the 2020 Concours of Elegance.

Here’s a cool video of the 1969 Porsche 917 that won car of the show at the 2020 Concours of Elegance.

In 1970, Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood drove the 917 KH (short-tail) with start number 23 and in the world-famous red-white Salzburg design to the first of (so far) 19 overall wins for Porsche at the Le Mans 24 Hours. The 917 was Porsche‘s first time in the league of immensely powerful, large capacity racing cars. Its 580bhp 4.5-litre 12-cylinder engine set new standards and is still legendary today.

Changes in the regulations meant that prototypes were allowed a maximum engine size of 3.0 litres, and for sports cars 5.0 litres were allowed – but a series of at least 25 had to be built. The 1969 race season allowed the 917 to become fully race proven, with the result that the car entered 1970 with its reliability assured and improved aerodynamics to rectify its previously wayward behaviour at high speed.

For the 1970 Le Mans 24 Hours the factory did not enter the cars directly, but via its partners, John Wyer Automotive and Porsche Salzburg. In a rain-soaked race, amid fierce competition from Ferrari, the 917s fought a close-won victory. This car, a Salzburg entry in the team’s red and white livery, started with a disadvantage – driver Richard Attwood had opted for the smaller of the two engines available by 1970, the 4.5-litre instead of the 5.0-litre, and had chosen the 917 KH ‘short-tail’ version, rather than the faster 917 LH long-tail. This was because the long-tail he’d driven at Le Mans in 1969 had been extremely unstable-but by 1970 the long-tail design had been made far more stable.

So, initially, Attwood and co-driver Hans Herrmann lagged behind the rest of the 917s and the Ferrari 512s. However, as rain started to fall in the evening, becoming torrential through the night, the car’s milder specification and the two drivers’ experience shone through-and to their great surprise they found themselves in the lead.

The heavy rain caused misfiring through the night due to water leaking onto the ignition components, but the car kept going. After 24 hours it was still in the lead despite the drivers being exhausted – particularly as Attwood later found out that he had been suffering from the mumps.

This was Porsche’s first-ever overall win at Le Mans’s and another 917 finished second. Since then, Porsche has achieved a record total of 19 overall La Sarthe victories to date, but the first, in car 23, was surely the greatest of all.

1948 Fiat 500B Topolino Cabriolet

Fiat‘s Topolino had a remarkable run, with more than 500,000 made from 1937 to 1955.

Fiat‘s Topolino had a remarkable run, with more than 500,000 made from 1937 to 1955. At the time of its introduction it was one of the smallest cars in the world – a two-passenger coupe with a 569cc four-cylinder engine and four-speed gearbox. Officially called “500,” it soon took the nickname Topolino, literally “little mouse” but soon interpreted as Mickey Mouse, for its mouse ear-like headlamps on its front fenders. A team of 32 Topolinos stormed the Mille Miglia, the fastest one averaging nearly 50 mph. The Topolino’s popularity helped push Fiat production to a new record in 1937, and nearly 84,000 had been made by the time Italy entered World War II.

The car photographed here in a period shade of light grey with red painted wheels and a brown interior, the Topolino’s charm is in its simplicity. Described as an older restoration, the Topolino came to the US in 1985 when it was imported from Italy by then owner Alberto Pedretti. With a history file dating back to that period, the Fiat was maintained during Pedretti’s ownership with an engine and transmission rebuild performed.

Acquired by its previous owner about 15 years ago, and in current ownership for about 5 years, the Topolino is very original, and sports a newer replaced wool headliner, while the trunk has been tidied. An engine refurbishment has been carried out in recent times as well. Upgraded 500C tubeless wheels and a C aluminum oil sump have been fitted, and the Topolino is reported to run and drive well. This Topolino presents as a functional and charming example of one of Italy’s most beloved icons.

Maserati enters the new Era with MC20, the new super sports car that combines performance, sportiness and luxury in the unique Maserati style. MC20 was presented to the world in Modena on 9 September 2020 during the “MMXX: Time to be audacious” event.

The new MC20 (MC for Maserati Corse and 20 for 2020, the year of its world première and the start of the Brand’s new Era) is the Maserati everyone was waiting for. It is a car with incredible aerodynamic efficiency, which conceals a sporty soul, with the new Nettuno engine, a 630 horsepower V6 with torque of 730 Nm that delivers 0-100 km/h acceleration in under 2.9 seconds and a top speed over 202 mph (325 kph). An engine that signals Maserati’s return to producing its own power units after a hiatus of more than 20 years.

So what do you think? Will this car be a sales success or a sales flop? Personally I’m glad to see more Maserati cars being produced, and sporty cars at that. I hope it is a success, but I feel that are the price of £187,230 will be a stumbling block for many, when there are so many great cars available for less. The MC20 arrives in the UK in the second quarter of 2021. Time will tell how it performs.

The London Concours 2020, presented by Montres Breguet, is a luxurious automotive garden party hosted in the heart of the City of London from Wednesday 19th to Thursday 20th August. This hugely exciting automobile extravaganza saw 80 of the worlds most precious cars gather in the gardens of the historic and beautiful Honourable Artillery Company Headquarters.

It was the UK’s first major automotive event to take place since February 2020 and boy had we missed these wonderful car shows.

The judges, led by members of the London Concours Steering Committee, not only awarded an overall winner, but a winner of each class, too.

These were the Concours classes:

“The Pursuit of Speed”

Since the invention of the motor car, the quest to be the fastest has been ever present. This class commends those fine machines that were crowned speed kings of the road through the decades.

1991 Ferrari F40

1959 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing

1975 Lamborghini Countach LP400 ‘Periscopio’

“Convertibles – The Golden Era”

This class celebrates the golden era of the cabriolet; a period in the fifties and sixties where soft-top design and engineering seemed to have hit a Zenith. The class is comprised of small-engined, nimble cars like the Lotus Elan, cult classics like the Ford Mustang and AC Cobra as well as design icons like the E-Type and Ferrari 250 GT California.

Event Winner: Convertibles: The Golden Era – Ferrari 330 GTS (below)

Our favourite was the: 1960 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster (below)

“Great Marques: Aston Martin”

Beauty, craft and art are three elements that Aston Martin holds itself to. Aston Martin is driven to create the most accomplished automotive art in the world and that’s why James Bond, the world’s greatest secret agent drives one. Having survived two world wars and multiple bankruptcies, the marque has consistently stuck to its three core elements and created some true motoring icons in the process; the DB2, DB5 and limited-edition performance models like the One-77 and Vulcan among them.

2007 Aston Martin Vanquish S

2009 Aston Martin DBS Casino Royale 2+0

Our favourite was the: 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake (below)

“The Era of the Supercar”

The term ‘hypercar’ is a recent one, defining a model built solely for speed. A hypercar must boast the latest technology, materials, innovations and design to deliver an uncompromising approach to performance. This class is a true exploration of the limits of motoring, populated by the likes of relative newcomers Pagani and Koenigsegg, alongside the old guard of Ferrari, Ford, Porsche, Lamborghini, McLaren and more.

Cars featured were:

1991 Ferrari Testarossa

1992 Ferrari 348 Challenge

Our favourite was the: 2018 Ford GT (below)

“Lost Marques”

The automotive world is cut-throat; some manufacturers can find great success in the industry, only to disappear years later following a run of bad luck. The Lost Marques class is a celebration of some of those car-makers now resigned to the pages of history. On display you’ll find the likes of Amphicar, DeLorean, Frazer-Nash, Jensen, Rover, De Tomaso and more.

Event Winner: Lost Marques – 1961 Facel Vega HK500 (below)

Our favourite was the: 1967 Iso Grifo GL 300 Series 1 (below)

“Great Marques: Lamborghini”

Imagine a tractor manufacturer taking on Ferrari…. so begins the story of Lamborghini. At its inception, Ferruccio Lamborghini tasked his engineering team with developing a more powerful, more usable range of Italian sports cars than those produced in Maranello. From that simple mantra, some of the most beautiful performance cars ever have emerged; the Miura, Countach, Diablo and on to more modern performance legends like the Aventador SVJ – all named for fighting bulls. There’s a good reason Lamborghini’s nickname is The Raging Bull…

Cars featured were:

1967 Lamborghini 400 GT

1970 Lamborghini Espada S2

1972 Lamborghini Miura

1977 Lamborghini Silhouette

1988 Lamborghini Countach LP5000 QV

“The Speed of Sand: The 100mph Club”

It’s a celebration of a tinkering mentality. Unlocking performance with hopped-up engines, stripped-down bodies, vintage speed equipment and more. All the while imbuing your car with a look unmistakably your own. To sum up this class in a phrase: “Life begins at 100mph”.

Cars featured were:

1927 Ford Model T Roadster, Flathead V8

1928 Ford Model A Roadster, Small Block Chevy Engine

Our favourite was the: 1934 Ford V8 3 Window Coupe, Blown Flathead V8 (below)

“Lancia Legends”

Lancia may no longer be the brightest spark in the automotive landscape, but it was once known as perhaps the most innovative manufacturer in the world. The Lambda, for example, was the first car to be fitted with a monocoque chassis, while the Aurelia was the first car to be fitted with a full-production V6 engine as well as independent suspension and rear live axles. Then Lancia went on to dominate rallying, and remains to this day the most successful manufacturer statistically speaking with the Stratos, 037 and Delta.

Cars featured were:

1929 Lancia Lambda 8th Series 224 Lungo

1934 Lancia Augusta ‘March Special’

1952 Lancia Aurelia B20 GT; chassis number 1501
