EMM London Private Office goes topless for the 2024 London Concours

Rumour has it, Summer may arrive next week, so to celebrate this rarest of British occasions, EMM London has decided to celebrate by going topless, showcasing two spectacular open-top roadsters from Ferrari and Aston Martin.

 

The historic and picturesque gardens of the Honourable Artillery Company will once again play host to this exceptional automotive showcase. This year's London Concours promises to be a captivating luxury extravaganza, attracting enthusiasts, car collectors, and aficionados from around the world.

 

Against a backdrop of architectural splendor and lush greenery, the London Concours creates a mesmerizing atmosphere that seamlessly blends the past, present, and future of the automotive world. A carefully curated selection of over 80 exceptional vehicles will grace the manicured lawns, each representing the epitome of automotive craftsmanship and innovation.

EMM London Private Office is proud to present two unmistakebly, strikingly defining Hypercar roadsters of our time, both ground-breaking in looks and technological development. Thanks go to both owners for allowing us to show these amazing cars over the three day of Concours.

Ferrari Monza SP2

First up the Ferrari Monza SP2, one of the most iconic future classic Ferraris built, inspired by Ferrari's rich heritage of racers. As part of the uber-exclusive Icona range these car were offered to only the very top of the loyal Ferrari client list. With just 499 examples built world-wide, and an unoffical 41 cars sold in the UK, just seeing one of these cars could be considered something of a miracle, so we are thrilled to have one on our stand (32) at London Concours this year.

 

The SP (Special Project) is no exaggeration; these cars are special. From almost any angle the inspiration of the racers that once entered into gruelling races such as the Mille Miglia or Tour de France are perfectly clear. Ferrari collector icons such as the 750 & 860 Monza, 250 TR and 166MM were all part of the inspiration that designer Flavio Manzoni gorged himself on when designing the stunning SP1 and SP2.

 

All 499 cars are powered by the 799bhp 6.5 litre Ferrari V12 engine, which delivers its biggest punch at an astonishing 8,500rpm. At the time of launch in 2019, this was the most powerful factory V12 ever produced by Ferrari, until the birth of the 812 Competizione in 2022 delivering 820bhp.

 

The chassis is very loosely based on the 812, but thanks to carbon fibre composite body panels using the same production techniques as the Ferrari F1 team, the Monza weighs in at just 1500/1520kg SP1/SP2 offering blisteringly fast performance.

Aston Martin Valkyrie Spider

Then, there’s the Aston Martin Valkyrie Spider which was first thrust upon the motoring world in August 2021 at Pebble Beach, CA. This car combines an F1 inspired aerodynamic and technology package, making it the most extreme Aston Martin ever produced in a collaboration with Red Bull Racing Advanced Tech.

 

The Newey designed track-oriented car’s production is limited to just 85 world-wide units and is according to Aston Martin, as close as you’ll get to driving an F1 car on the road. We are fortunate to be able to present this car at London Concours next week. Like, the Monza, it can be considered extremely fortunate to see one in the flesh.

 

While the Aston Martin Valkyrie’s unique 1000 bhp 6.5l Cosworth V12 and 160bhp electric motor powertrain remains unchanged from the Coupe, the Valkyrie Spider has received revisions to its carbon fibre structure, plus precise recalibration of both the active aerodynamic and active chassis systems. All with an eye to maintaining optimal Valkyrie performance when driven in a topless condition.

 

Capable of speeds exceeding 350kmh (217 mph to us Brits) it is undoubtedly the fastest and most extreme road-legal Aston Martin ever built, offering LMP1 levels of performance. Power to weight stands in at 1,126bhp, and delivers acceleration to 62mph in just 2.6 seconds, which is about the traction limit for road legal tyres.

 

Both of these incredibly rare and beautiful cars can be viewed on the EMM London Private office stand, number 32.

The Legendary V12 Award

For 2024, EMM London is proud to be sponsoring the award for The Legendary V12 class, which includes some incredible cars all boasting 12 cylinders, firing in a manner of directions. From the Berlinetta Boxer flat 12 from Ferrari’s 512 BB, named after the direction of a boxer’s glove during a punch, to the 27 Litre Rolls-Royce Merlin powered machine known as The Beast, they all have the undeniable sound and characteristic of a wonderful V12. With fewer manufacturers offering a V12 today, and rumours of Ferrari discontinuing their award winning F140, could the latest HD version we will see in the 12 Cilindri possibly be the last from them? We sincerely hope not, as Ferrari without a V12 is like a fish without water. But for now it’s time to celebrate the V12s of past, present, and we hope the future in 10 carefully selected examples.

 

The awards will be presented at 17:00 on the opening day, Tuesday 4th June.
