Coming to the Honourable Artillery Company lawn from 8-9 June will be a Ferrari 458 Speciale, 458 Speciale A, 599 GTO and a 599 SA Aperta, built to full GTO specification. Each of these limited run Ferraris would be special enough on its own, but Romans International’s cars are fitted with a few extra special features.
Each car, for example, is finished in Rosso Corsa F1 2007 paint, and comes with extremely low mileage on the odometer. Rosso Corsa F1 2007 is a colour borrowed from Ferrari’s Formula One cars of the 2007 season, in which Ferrari took the Constructors’ Championship and Drivers’ Championship titles.
Visitors looking closely will also be able to spot the signatures of the Ferrari Special Division team, who personally signed the carbon fibre engine bay in the 458 Speciale. It’s these little touches that mark out these Ferraris – real rarities in their own right – as a truly unique collection.
Paul Jaconelli, Romans International founder, said: “We always have a host of the world’s most incredible cars in our showroom, but this collection of Ferraris is very special to me. The signatures on the cars and the paintwork steeped in history have a real sense of passion about them, and that’s something that we always try to follow as a business. I’m just pleased we’re able to share some of our passion with the visitors to the City Concours this June.”
Romans International’s Ferraris are just a small part of the overall display of cars at City Concours, which features more than 110 carefully curated models. One special display reveals the evolution of the supercar through more than 20 vehicles on display, ranging from the Jaguar XKSS to the Pagani Zonda F and Maserati MC12 Corsa.
Andrew Evans, City Concours Director, said: “For Romans International to bring with them this collection of exquisite Ferraris is a real privilege for the City Concours. To stand out among the incredible selection of cars our Steering Committee has picked for the main event is tough but these cars, in their matching shade of evocative red, will certainly do the trick.”
The collection of cars on display isn’t the event’s only attraction, with a number of luxury brands showcasing their goods and a host of quality hospitality options. Auction house RM Sotheby’s will be hosting an exclusive breakfast at the City Concours and champagne house Taittinger will have its very own champagne tent.
The City Concours will be held from 8-9 June at the Honourable Artillery Company grounds, near to the Barbican and Bank.
