With more than 2,000 visitors, Beetle Sunshine Tour kicks off on 17 August. The tour is the largest private meeting of lovers of all three generations of Beetle.

Within the Festival of Speed site was the Cartier Style et Luxe concours d’Elegance. Now in its 19th consecutive year, for 2013 50 headline vehicles from the event’s history were chosen for their rarity and beauty. This included JD Classics’ 1955 Lancia Aurelia B24S Spider. 

The Cartier ‘Style et Luxe’ had 12 judges including pioneering motor racing engineer Gordon Murray, Apple design guru Jonathan Ive, singer Simon Le Bon, with his model wife Yasmin, TV presenter Kevin McCloud and renowned designers Marc Newson and Terence Conran, plus many more.

After much scrutiny, the judges announced JD Classics’ Aurelia as ‘Best in Show’ on the final afternoon of the Festival of Speed.

Adding to JD Classics’ static presence was the recently restored Toyota 2000GT on the Toyota Pavilion, the monstrous XJ12 Broadspeed Coupé in the Cathedral Paddock and the James Toseland World Land Speed Record attempt motorcycle, which formed part of the ‘Land Speed Legends’ display.
