The first weekend of September was a busy one for us at DK Engineering. We prepared six cars for two concours in the UK. Salon Prive saw the debut of the just-completed, ex-Ron Fry, Ferrari 250LM. After inspecting, approving and acquiring the car for its current custodian in 2015, we have completed one of our in house, world famous restorations.
Lasting 2.5 years, consumed by the restoration, we have extensively researched, ensuring the car is historically accurate, with countless hours of work going into the bare metal restoration. #6105 left the show with one of the two most coveted awards "People's Choice" as well as the Duke's Choice Trophy.
Also in the Concours, DK restored and prepared #80742, the MonteShell F40 GT/LM restored by us in just five months and completed earlier this year ahead of several competitive outings, most notably including Silverstone Classic 2018.
Other cars prepared included David Cottingham's personal 365 GTC, the most original works MGA twin-cam, the ex-David Bailey 275GTB/4 and an original, unrestored 275 GTB.
DK also had a stand at the show, with five and a half cars. The highlight of the stand proved to be the totally unique, Ferrari 212 Export 'Barchetta', sympathetically restored by Ferrari in 2013 where it achieved its Classiche status.
The half car on the stand was the ex-Design Museum: Ferrari Under The Skin; 250 GT LWB rolling chassis which garnered significant attention over the course of the event!
Further Sales cars included, a 2,500 kms F40, Bugatti Veyron, 365 GTC and a 550 Barchetta.
As ever we delighted to attend this prestigious invitation event and further pleased to be bringing home more significant silverware to add to the trophy cabinet.
