Here are the exotic cars from the 2014 Greenwich Concours d’Elegance. There was quite a spectacular display of some very rare supercars and hypercars on display this year, everything from the $1.9 million Pagani Huayra you see above, to a Ferrari Enzo, to the world-speed-record-setting Hennessey Venom GT, to Jim Glickenhaus’ P4/5 Competizione. It was surely a sight to be seen.
The Pagani Huayra really stood out, though. It spent both days of the show tucked away in the corner of Miller Motorcars’ display tent, but it was completely swamped with people the entire time. When it left the field, people literally lost their minds, jumping around in a reckless frenzy to try and snag the perfect shot of it.
Is easy to see why people go completely nuts over the Huayra when after a decade of grueling depravation for American car enthusiasts, it is the first Pagani to finally make it stateside. But the Huayra is also an exceptionally magnificent object, even by seven-figure supercar standards. Every aspect of the car seems so “full,” right down to the finest detail — nothing has been overlooked or under-thought.
I spent 30 minutes pouring over the Huayra on the second day of the show, and then went and looked at the Ferrari Enzo out on the field. This may sound weird, but the Enzo just seemed incomplete by comparison in regard to its details. While I do love the way the Enzo looks, it is much less an object of art than the Huayra.
As for the Hennessey Venom GT, the car present at the show was the exact car that did the recent 270mph run on the NASA runway. The Venom looks like a Lotus Exige that got angry and became The Hulk, which is quite badass.
There were many more awesome supercars in attendance as well, so enjoy the gallery!
