Concours of Elegance – Simon’s highlights

As a Royal Warrant holder we were delighted to take part in this year’s Concours of Elegance at Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh. Holyrood Palace played host to 60 of the world’s rarest and most desirable cars, many of which have never been publicly seen in the UK.

 Simon Cundey, Managing Director of Henry Poole, talks about his highlights below.

 “It was a delight to meet the Patron of the Concours of Elegance, HRH Prince Michael of Kent GCVO, who took the time to visit our stand.

 As you can see from the images below, the Concours of Elegance has the most impressive background of Arthur’s Seat, which I think set the scene.

 One of the highlights of the weekend for me was to get to see the 1962 Ferrari GRO Berlinetta Scaglietti. Only 39 of these cars were built and the GTO is probably the most famous of the 250 series Ferraris. It was also an absolute delight to see the 1961 Aston Martin DB4 Zagato. The British press described this car as ‘The Aston Marvel ‘which I whole heartily agree with.

 I very much look forward to next year’s event which is due to take place at Windsor Castle.”
