Best Gulf Modern Classics
Sponsored by FT How to Spend It
The Gulf is widely respected as the place where design and innovation is combined with personal taste to give modern cars a distinct and coach-built look, harking back to the glory days of the 20s and 30s.
For entry into the Modern Bespoke section, one car is permitted per owner and all cars must be privately owned. We will have 15 superb and iconic examples.
On Friday 8th December, the official judging for the Best Gulf Modern Classics will be conducted between 12:00-16:00, with the awards ceremony itself at 17.00.
It is requested that the owner or representative is on hand to answer questions about the car during the judging phase. There are three categories – best interior, best exterior and best overall.

The history of the car and difference is our inspiration. From the early beginnings, to the coach built era of the 20s and 30s, to the amazing diversity of modern times (50s-90s) the beauty of the car is celebrated world wide and it is fitting that the Gulf has its own event.
We will have 18 cars in the classic and collector line up. Your car will be placed on the lawn of Burj Al Arab in a fantastic location. It will be representative of the burgeoning Gulf passion for the car as a work of art.

The Modern Bespokes and the Classics will be judged by a group of six people with a Chairman of each group. They will be at Burj Al Arab from 13.00 each day and may want to talk to you about the car. A steward will give you plenty of warning if this is the case.
