Default The best Supercar Show in the world?

Hi everyone, I'm back in the UK for a couple of weeks for work, but timed it so that I could attend my favourite UK show on Sunday - the Wilton House Supercar Sunday.

All the cars there (bar a couple of press vehicles) are privately owned by people in the UK and all the money raised at the event goes to charity.

This year the standard was amazing, we had many 1m+ cars such as the Koenigsegg Agera & CCXR Edition, Pagani Zonda F Roadster Final Edition, 2x Bugatti Veyron, Aston Martin One-77 and my favourite car of the show - a 1960 Ferrari 250 SWB currently for sale at 2.5m.

I hope you enjoy the pictures. More to come after post is approved.

Wowieeee.... What pics, dude! Love all of 'em, please keep them coming! My fav so far is the Yelllow Carrera GT and the Zonda! That bare naked carbon fibre is just pure bliss.

Looking forward to see more pics and I will be adding more comments!

I loved that the 250 SWB was getting almost no attention. It was sat, alone on the grass and it was by far the most expensive car there. People just don't appreciate classics when the new metal is there.

I certainly like the Zondas, Koenigseggs etc, but I desire the 250...

What a treat mate. Every one of them is awesome. You seem to have also caught them driving around. Thanks for sharing all.

It's just brilliant to see the classics kept in such immaculate conditions, why wouldn't they demand such huge price tags? My vote would go to the Miura! Can we have more pics of the Miura please!

@Beefmeister: what is the typical value of a pristine SWB (with the right history) these days? I understand that the 250 GTO fetched GBP15M (!!) in 2008, but what about the SWB?

Wow. Now that was some turnout. And good for you to plan your work timing in such a way. I just loved the 599 GTO and the Veyron.

My Oh My! That's one heck of a turn-in. I'm findin' it so hard to pick a favorite.

The license plates on the red 599 GTO is quite misleading though, especially if owned by a man

The Aventador is a Demo car.

That very car us currently for sale in the UK for 2,500,000. Seems like a bargain to me!

Im seriously loving that orange Mosler out of the modern cars, but my favourite will remain an F40! Overall though, no question about it, the 250 SWB is the most desirable, droolworthy machine there!

Thanks Beefmeister for those wonderful photos. I too liked the 250 SWB but for me it is the Aston Martin One-77 that takes the cake.

Awesome pics though. Upload more if you have.
