Incredible supercars set for ‘Harry’s Garage’ at Concours of Elegance
Incredible Supercars Set For ‘Harry’s Garage’
At Concours of Elegance
This year’s Concours of Elegance, kicking off at Hampton Court Palace in a week’s time, will be showcasing some of the most amazing supercars of recent memory as part of the ‘Harry’s Garage’ feature. Curated by the founder of YouTube channel of the same name and Evo magazine, Harry Metcalfe, ‘Harry’s Garage’ will bring together models from Pagani, Koenigsegg, Lamborghini and more.
Among the line-up is the totally unique Koenigsegg Agera RS ‘Naraya’ With a body made of blue-tinted carbon fibre and highlighted by genuine 18ct gold leaf, both inside and out. With Koenigsegg’s 1160hp twin-turbo V8 underneath the bonnet, the ‘Naraya’ is one of the most powerful cars on the road.
Two special Paganis will be appearing in ‘Harry’s Garage’, including the Huarya. Powered by an AMG-sourced twin-turbo 6.0-litre V12 with over 700hp, the Huarya is capable of more than 230mph. It also features a number of aerodynamic flaps that raise or lower to help improve braking, cornering or grip, depending on the circumstances.
Alongside the Huarya will be the Pagani Zonda F (for Fangio), of which only 25 were made. A predecessor to the Huarya, the Zonda F was a 600hp mid-engined supercar that can trace its origins back to a close relationship and shared idea between Horacio Pagani and Formula One legend Fangio.
The Jaguar C-X75 was made famous in the latest James Bond film, Spectre, but visitors to Concours of Elegance will have a chance to get up close to this stunning Jaguar in ‘Harry’s Garage’.
A regular on the Harry’s Garage YouTube channel, Concours of Elegance will be hosting a Lamborghini Countach.5000 QV. Complete with a signature from Lamborghini legend Valentino Balboni, the Countach boasts a 5.2-litre V12 engine with four valves in each, giving it the QV or Quattrovalvole name.
