The entry grid is a “who’s who” of the international social scene, where celebrities rub shoulders with Sheikhs, entrepreneurs, oil tycoons, and dot com billionaires, but if the line up of stars doesn’t get your attention then the cars are certain to get you revved up.

The incredible line up includes multi million dollar Bugatti Veyrons, McLarens, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Rolls Royces, Bentleys, Aston Martins, Jaguars, and Porsches, along with several vintage, wacky and interesting vehicles from the last 6 decades of motoring.
