World’s most desirable cars descend on Wilton

| 7 Aug 2012

Wilton House’s 5 August annual celebration of classics and supercars had its usual impressive mix of prized metal.

Lord Pembroke’s Bugatti Veyron was the machine grabbing the most attention, aided and abetted by a Gulf paint job courtesy of the Pop Bang Colour artist, Ian Cook.

Classics were numerous, too, and none were prettier than a Ferrari 275GTS.

Supercars such as the Alfa  8C, Ferrari Testarossa, Lamborghini Diablo and Jaguar XJ220 shared the Lord’s drive with older favourites including the Ferrari Dino, Chevrolet Corvette and a clutch of (probably not) Cobras.

Modern supercars were also out in force with Maranello’s latest offerings – such as the 458, FF and Enzo – mingling with Pagani Zondas, Lamborghini Murcielagos, Porsches, Aston Martins and big-engined AMG Mercs.

A "longtail" McLaren F1 provided glamour of a more track-focused nature.
