Motoring icons take pride of place with Bridge of Weir Leather

By Giles Blair

SCOTTISH luxury automotive interior experts Bridge of Weir Leather celebrated the best in motoring design and showcased a stunning selection of vehicles at last weekend’s Concours of Elegance.

The Renfrewshire-based firm’s enclosure at Hampton Court Palace in London hosted the McLaren Speedtail, Range Rover SV Autobiography Ultimate Edition and Aston Martin DBX.

And the Jaguar C-type Continuation and an electric version of the Land Rover Series IIA by Everrati – each featuring the company’s products – both made their public debuts at the upmarket motoring event.

The new Lotus Emira, which also sports the firm’s sustainably made leather, was present to wow visitors, too.

The Bridge of Weir Design Award to a standout car at the concours went to a unique 1953 Delahaye 135MS CL Speciale Faget Varnet, with judges thoroughly impressed by a 2018 restoration.

Company director Jamie Davidson said: “We were delighted to honour exceptional automotive design at the concours and the Delahaye was a very worthy winner.

“Over the years, Bridge of Weir has supplied fine automotive leather to some of the world’s most iconic cars and it has been a privilege to display so many wonderful examples at our enclosure.
