MILLIONS of pounds worth of classic and supercars will grace the lawns of Wilton House, near Salisbury, this summer with the two-day event set to showcase some of the world’s greatest cars.

Wilton Classic & Supercar on June 6 & 7 has already attracted a prestigious range of cars and motorbikes which organiser Lord Pembroke said includes almost every Bugatti ever made.

There will also be the first public viewing of an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Zagato Prototype which was discovered recently in the USA after 50 years and the Bloodhound Project car ahead of its world record attempt later this year.

Supercars lined up to appear include a McLaren P1, La Ferrari, Porsche 918 Spyder, 0ne-77 Aston Martin, a Veyron Pur Sang and a Veyron Super Sport WRC.

The Saturday is dedicated to classic cars with the Sunday focusing on supercars and both days offering visitors hundreds of cars to admire, a live restoration project, interactive stands, live music and a host of food and trade stands.

Event ambassador Tiff Needell will host the daily parade interview sessions and talk to visitors about motoring-related topics.

“This is a great event in the motoring calendar and I’m thrilled to be involved this year,’’ said Tiff. “It’s a great excuse to spend two days surrounded by some amazing cars and bikes from rare old classics through to the very latest supercar technology.’’

There will also be prizes for the best cars on display and the launch of a brand new category the Concours d’Histoire which will recognise great stories behind some of the cars at the show.

More than 500 cars and bikes are expected to be on display over the two-day event.
