Over one hundred classic and supercars will gather on the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea next month, as part of the Grand Chelsea Rendezvous.

The event, which takes place on 8 September, invites classic and supercar owners to bring their vehicles along for the day and to join in a procession of cars around the capital, taking in London landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park Corner and Sloane Square.

The event aims to raise awareness of the work of the Royal Hospital Chelsea and is organised by the 96 Club. Patrons of the club include Sir Stirling Moss and Derek Bell.

Highlights in previous years have included a chance to see the Bugatti Veyron. Other cars confirmed for the eclectic event include a 1983 Austin Metro 1.3 HLE, a 1954 Austin Healey 100M and one of only 22 De Tomaso Mangustas in the UK.

Our Verdict

Bugatti Veyron
The world doesn't need a car like the Bugatti Veyron, but the fact it exists at all is reason for celebration

The Bugatti Veyron redefines what's possible in a road car, but does it justify its eye-watering price?
