From humble origins, Cars and Coffee has grown (and continues to do so) into an international brand, one which has been able to attract some of the rarest and most beautiful cars in the world to its meets across the US, Europe and, soon, the world. So when C&C decided to join forces with Topaz Detailing, a high-end detailing and paint protection company based in North London, we knew it would be worth checking out.
Last month's morning meet was actually the second consecutive year that C&C's flagship UK event was held at Topaz, and it certainly did not disappoint. Attendees were allowed a rare glimpse behind the closed doors of both the Topaz and neighbouring Pagani UK workshops, as well as the mouth-watering display of cars that showed up to enjoy a morning coffee.
Pretty much every car at the event would be noteworthy in isolation, however, so we've narrowed it down to a few highlights worthy of your attention. Ferrari's 2015 F1 car is probably be a good place to start, which has actually featured on PistonHeads before when it popped up outside H R Owen Ferrari in South Kensington casually parked alongside its 2001 predecessor.
Sticking with Ferrari, a pair of LaFerraris were present, one white and one black, as well as an F40, F50, and F12 TdF. Not bad at all. A one-of-three all blue carbon fibre Bugatti Veyron Supersport wearing the number plate 'F1' was also quite the head turner, as well as the outrageously powerful Koenigsegg Agera RSN (one of three Ageras on display).
A final mention, before letting you look through the pictures, should go to the McLaren P1 GT inspired by the F1 GT. This particular car is the first of a series of P1 GTRs converted to road legal longtail form by Lanzante Motorsport, a company whose work we'll be getting a closer look at in the not-too-distant future.
