Four Ferraris in the winners’ circle at the Uniques concours

Florence, 4 September. Ferrari was the most successful marque at the Unique Special Ones concours d’elegance held at the prestigious Four Seasons Hotel in Florence from the 2nd to the 4th of September. Now in its second year, the concours is unusual in that its concours criteria see separate judging for aspects of design and for originality and restoration. This novel combination saw Ferraris take no fewer than four of the 10 Best in Class awards as well as the overall Best in Show.

The four magnificent Ferraris were Bernard Carl’s 1962 Fantuzzi-bodied Ferrari 268 SP, which took honours in the Sports and Racing Cars class, Kenneth Roath’s 1955 250 Europa GT Coupé (restored by Ferrari Classiche in 2009), which took the Gran Turismo Coupés class, Peter McCoy’s 1951 212 Export Coupé, which took the Post-War Italian Style class, and David Sydorick’s 1956 Zagato-bodied 250 GT Berlinetta. The latter, one of just three individually-styled long-wheelbase cars with the double-bubble roof, also took Best of Show.
