The Best of British Tour, at Windsor (UK)

The "Best of British" tour is a meeting exclusively dedicated to cars produced in Great Bitain, one of the greatest kingdom for exclusive cars. Many automakers were gathered on the lawns of Windsor Castle : Mc Laren (who took the opportunity to present the spyder version of the MP4-12C), Bristol (402 convertible, 401, 404 and 410), Aston Martin (DB4, DB6, V8 Saloon and Volante, Vanquish and DB9), Jaguar (1,5L, MkV, XK120 convertible and FHC, XK140, Eagle E-Type and the fantastic C-Type chassis number #XKC021), Bentley (4,25L or S3 Continental convertible), Rolls-Royce (Silver Ghost and an interesting Silver Spur Olympian Edition), Lotus, Alvis (with a beautiful Speed25), Frazer Nash, the "made in England" Ford GT40 (chassis 1017).
At last, one of the greatest exhibited car is a special Riley Transformable, built in 1948 by the swiss coachbuilder Walter Koeng, on a 2,5L Riley chassis. The car was a styling prototype shaped in an Art Deco style close to Avion Voisin pattern, with the particularity to be the first car with scooped glass side panels on the roof.
