Gallery: The cars of the Concours of Elegance

Last weekend, Hampton Court Palace was the host for the annual Concours of Elegance. AOL Cars headed to the preview event on Friday.

Nearly 13,000 people descended on the palace to see some of the best modern and classic cars in existence. Up to 1,000 cars attended the show over the course of the three days, with a Lancia Astura Aerodinamico Castagna being awarded best in show.

Sixty cars competed in the concours, with both modern and classics featuring in the competition. The cars ranged from a 1953 Ferrari 250 MM to a 2017 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato, and even included a film car from the 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

There was also an incredible display of five Jaguar D-Types, which featured in the Le Mans 24 Hour race in 1957.

On the modern supercar front, there was also a 'Harry's Garage' display, with cars put together by Evo Magazine founder Harry Metcalfe. The display featured a Koenigsegg Agera RS Naraya, a black Ferrari Enzo and a Jaguar C-X75, made famous by its appearance in the James Bond film Spectre.
