The Schuppen 662 CR P1, a Le Mans racer for the road, with 600 hp will be at The London Concours 2023
The London Concours, presented by Montres Breguet, will return to the city center in less than three weeks with a staggering array of supercars. The must-see show will feature the best range of high performance exotic cars yet including the wildest Skid Pan 662 CR P1, along with other examples spread over a variety of carefully selected sections. Things will be kicked up a notch on Thursday 8 June, the final day of the event, when another 50 machines from the world’s most prestigious manufacturers arrive in the intimate setting of The Hon’ble Artillery Company for a dedicated ‘Supercar Thursday’, presented in association with . Drivers Syndicate.
At the center of the June display will be the ultra-rare 1991 Schuppen 962CR P1, one of the most stunning road cars ever to appear, and one of only 6 in existence. The ambitious project was spearheaded by Australian driver Vern Schuppen, winner of Le Mans in 1983 at the wheel of a Porsche 956. Their creation was based on the carbon fiber chassis of the Porsche 962 racing car, which gave the Schuppan 962 a wing. Empty weight only 1,050 kg. Powered by a 3.3-litre Type 935 twin-turbo six-cylinder, generating 600PS, performance was incredible: 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds and 230mph at full throttle. With a dramatic full-width rear wing, narrow cockpit, and other 962 racer-derived aerodynamic elements used to keep power under control, the Schuppen ranks among the most outrageous cars ever fitted with a 962 number plate. A true runner for the road.
Other exotic machinery on display at the event will include notable bugatti veyron vitesse, As the ultra rare ‘WRC’ (World Record Car) edition. One of eight WRCs produced, the special race car was built in 2013 to celebrate the 1184bhp Veyron Vitesse, which reached 254mph on a test track in Germany, becoming, for a period, the fastest car in the world. Aerodynamics was, of course, the key to such an achievement; Along with the Veyron’s sleek shape and active rear wing, the Vitesse also features a specially developed roof spoiler as well as an intricately designed windshield, which ensures smooth driving with the top open, even That’s even when it exceeds 250 mph!
HAC will also now welcome the prestigious McLaren P1, Flying the flag of Great Britain. When it was launched in 2013, the P1 was unlike anything the world had seen before, delivering violent performance thanks to a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 and powerful electric motor. Aerodynamics were also at the heart of its ethereal, high-tech allure; The P1 can lean dramatically in its most aggressive track mode. With the active rear wing fully extended and working in conjunction with the chopped and vented bodywork, the P1 can generate 600kg of downforce at 160mph, helping it to lap the Nürburgring in less than 7 minutes . That rear wing also featured DRS (Drag Reduction System) like an F1 car, activated via a button on the steering wheel. When it left production in 2015, it produced 903bhp,
The show will feature one of McLaren’s other iconic models: the Scary 675LT, The LT, launched in 2016 and based on the 650S, draws 666bhp and 515lb/ft from the familiar 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8. Thanks to its lightweight build – it was 100kg lighter than the 650S at 1230kg (dry) – the LT wasn’t far behind the P1 in terms of outright speed: 0-60mph in 2.9 seconds, 0-124mph in just 7.0 seconds and 205 mph at full throttle. For many, the terrifyingly powerful and lightweight 675LT is the latest incarnation of the modern McLaren: insanely fast but still surprisingly accessible, with communicative steering and spry, expertly tuned handling. An all-time great supercar that is not to be missed.
The event will also welcome a 21st century coach-built hypercar: the extraordinary POrche Carrera GTZ, The first example was commissioned in 2013, with revered Italian styling house Zagato tasked with creating a curvy full-carbon coupe body for the Carrera GT, which had been in production from 2003 to 2007. Known for his work with Zagato, Aston Martin and Alfa. The Romeo, designed carbon bodywork that was more aerodynamic than the original Carrera GT, featured a gently raked coupé roofline that featured Zagato’s signature double-bubble design motif. Zagato clearly saw no need to change the Carrera GT’s mechanical recipe, retaining the howling, razor-sharp 5.7-liter V10, graceful manual gearshift, and carbon chassis. Zagato models are exceedingly rare; Only 6 of the 1270 Carrera GTs are believed to have been converted to date.
In addition, the fair will also showcase the latest offerings from Porsche ‘992’ GT3 RS, Most extreme 911 ever. It features highly aerodynamic elements including active front and rear wings (with DRS function), which generate 860kg of downforce at 285km/h, three times more than the standard GT3. The 518bhp, 4.0-litre straight-six machine is so extreme it forgoes luggage space altogether – the front boot is filled with motorsport-derived cooling systems. All the details add up to deliver an amazing performance; An all-original RS lap of the dreaded Nürburgring in just 6:49.3.
This is just a taste of what you can expect from the supercar show which will feature over 50 cars in total. Supercars will appear alongside other highly anticipated and select Concours classes including Golden Age Coupes, Built to Race for the Road, Evolution of Aero and Grand Tourisme. More class announcements will be made in the coming weeks as we head towards the seventh edition of this indispensable event.
