H.R. Owen Ferrari is gearing up for a show-stopping appearance at the 2017 Concours of Elegance, armed with some of the most desirable and rarest models in the world.
The UK’s leading luxury dealer group has pulled out all the stops to give Hampton Court Palace visitors something to celebrate and savour from 1-3 September.
The newcomer swaps a naturally aspirated V12 for a twin-turbo 601bhp V8 and favours a rear-wheel-drive setup over the standard Lusso’s all-wheel-drive system. It’s 50kg lighter than its counterpart and capable of sprinting from 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds.
Only a few examples of the GTC4 Lusso T are currently on British shores, and the Concours of Elegance will give visitors the first chance to see the car in the flesh.
Alongside the T, H.R. Owen will be flexing its vintage car muscles by displaying a freshly restored 1967 275 GTB/4. Two years in the making, it’s the first model that the group has restored since being officially appointed Ferrari Classiche dealers.
The 275 GTB/4 is widely regarded as the best looking and best performing V12 Berlinetta from the late 1960s and a dream model for Ferrari aficionados. H.R. Owen’s model has been perfectly restored to its prime and will be a real head-turner on the Hampton Court Palace lawn.
Also on display under the H.R. Owen umbrella will be a 488 GTB and a LaFerrari Aperta owned by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.
Owen Rothwell, H.R. Owen Ferrari Marketing Manager, said: “We’re hugely excited to bring something extra special to this year’s Concours of Elegance. The GTC4 Lusso T is a hugely important model for Ferrari and one that is a very rare sight in the UK, so we’re very much looking forward to the public reaction to its display. Likewise the restored 275 GTB/4, which has spent two years with H.R. Owen being brought to the finest standards. It’s the perfect model to demonstrate exactly why we’re certified Ferrari Classiche dealers and it will certainly turn plenty of heads.”
