Rare supercars & Classic Cars Plus Interview with curator of Nizam’s cars and finder of Sheikh Zayed’s 1965 Rolls-Royce
Attended ‘Supercar Day’ at the amazing 2022 London Concours yesterday held as usual at the Honourable Artillery Company near Old Street in Central London. The Drivers Union, Supercar Owner’s Club, was there in full attendance. Plus some extraordinary new and classic cars.
Up to 100 unique and rare vintage and classic cars featured
Pakistan’s first online antique cars museum has been launched at an exclusive private event at the Quaid e Azam House Museum in Karachi, former home of Pakistan’s founder, M. A. Jinnah. Among a spectacular display of classic cars, Shoaib Qureshy, founder of the virtual museum, Antique Cars Pakistan, explained that it was “Pakistan’s first online museum intended to showcase the very best antique cars in the country”.
Are you filthy rich and villainous? Then read on. Otherwise, pfft, just go look at the ‘regular’ Ghost. You’re not quite elite enough to contemplate this lady in black.
About that though, the all-new second generation Rolls-Royce Ghost was launched last year, and in a major departure, unlike its predecessor, was based not on the BMW 7-Series, but instead shared its platform with in-house siblings, the flagship Phantom and the Cullinan luxury SUV. Admittedly, like those other Rolls-Royce motor cars, its power unit is from BMW (which owns Rolls-Royce), though it’s no less than a V12 engine with a 6.75-litre cubic capacity.
Check out my chat with dear friend Mathias Doutreleau who is Founder and Chairman of the Concours d’Elegance Suisse and has created automotive events around the world including the Middle East, Far East and The Quail in California. We talk about his classic ex-Royal Range Rover and he recalls his father’s humungous station wagon they used to cruise around France in and the extremely rare and unique classic Rolls-Royce that still lives in the family. Passionate, insightful and inspirational, if you care for classic cars and automotive events, this is podcast is a must!
