The countdown has begun for Stonor Supercar Sunday, which opens on the 4th July. Set in the magnificent grounds of historic Stonor Park close to Henley-on-Thames in rural Oxfordshire, the spectacular event will feature 400 of the world’s fastest and most expensive cars, with an incredible combined value of more than £100m.
With so many priceless automotive idols from past and present eras on show, this years event has been made even bigger, with Stonor House providing the perfect backdrop.
Guests can look forward to five specially curated showcases, which will be on display on the lush green lawns directly in front of Stonor’s exquisite red brick façade. In addition these will be complemented by hundreds of the world’s finest and most exclusive exotics all gracing the adjoining Charles Stanley Supercar Paddock.
The famous five curated collections sparkling on Stonor’s hallowed grass embrace magical milestones in supercar history, with 10 legendary Alfa Romeo 8Cs from the 1930s topping the bill.
Adding to the Latin fervour, the precious Alfas will be joined on the lawns by no fewer than 35 brightly coloured Lamborghinis, all gathering to celebrate major anniversaries in the Italian company’s illustrious history. It is 10 years since the introduction of the awesome Aventador and 20 years since the equally-striking Murcielago was unleashed. Most notably of all, it is 50 years since the launch of the final Miura SV and another 50 years since the jaw-dropping Countach was first unveiled.
With the show taking place on the 4th July, another of the five principal displays will pay homage to American Independence Day with an awesome collection of badass V8-engined US muscle cars dating back to the raucous sixties and seventies.
Closer to home, the Jaguar E-type’s 60th birthday will be honoured in a star-studded line-up of invaluable Classic Super Legends – a timeless turn-out which will all also put the spotlight on some fabulous ‘Prancing Horse’ Ferraris including supermodel Dino, Daytona and Testarossa pin-ups.
Completing the Stonor showcases, the fifth curated display will put the spotlight on lady-owned driving deities – it is yet another impressive collection topped by a 1912 Royce Silver Ghost and an original 1963 AC Cobra Le Mans Coupé.
The show’s title partner Bremont will be celebrating its new partnership as Official Timing Partner to Williams Racing, by bringing a Williams FW41 grand prix racer for display on the front lawn, too. The eye-catching FW41 demonstrates the engineering precision essential at the cutting-edge of both motorsport and watchmaking.
“It’s going to be the perfect supercharged day out for every car enthusiast – a petrolhead’s paradise,” confirmed Mark Woolley, Show Director. “It’s hard to imagine a more heavenly way to spend a Sunday in summer than surrounded by so many new and old automotive legends, all beautifully showcased within the fabulous grounds of Stonor Park.”
Gates will open at 11am and the memorable day will be brought to a finale at around 5pm on Sunday evening. As the curtain comes down all the bank-busting supercars will be fired-up for the not-to-be-missed Grand Depart.
