For two days in May Savile Row in central London is closed off to traffic and transformed into a celebration of style; tailoring, craftmanship and, of course, great cars.

This week around 40 significant cars from all eras were brought together in an outstanding display that incorporated classic design and modern technology. From the majestic 1907 Mercedes Spider to the global debut of Ian Callum’s electric ‘Skye’ multi-terrain vehicle, plus motorcycles, there was something to appeal to any of the thousands of visitors that turned out in the sometimes inclement weather. In addition, there were a series of interesting seminars and talks plus automotive-themed displays and demonstrations by the street’s resident tailoring businesses.

The ex. Michael Andretti McLaren F1 pictured above was voted best of show by the judging panel with the runner up being the fabulous Lagonda LG6 Rapide owned by the family of the late Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – see below. The people’s choice award went to the ex-work’s 1956 Ferrari 500TR driven in period by Franco Cortese.

Keep an eye out for the dates of next year’s event – it is well worth a visit.
