Transported into the world of jet-set luxury, last weekend we visited the lifestyle event The Elite London. Packed with VIP experiences like test driving supercars in the test drive paddock, helicopter pleasure flights and flying in a Spitfire. Not to mention test-riding our limited edition foldable scooter SwiftyONE MARINE. Here is the low-down on the three day event!
An outstanding array of cars, luxury sports cars, vintage collectables and top of the range automobiles, the Elite London had them all on show. With free test rides of the Abarth Spider, or testing out a Tesla Model X, it was an experience not to be missed. Notably a made to order Atalanta vintage sports car was a definite head turner. A classic British heritage brand with an impeccable black finish and spoked wheels, what’s not to love?
PLANES and HELICOPTERS
With many visitors to the show arriving by air, the air-strip was full of private planes and helicopters to see. Noted was a multi-coloured helicopter belonging to Jamiroquai’s Jay Kay, brought to the show by Heli-Air.
One item certainly on my wish list was the Materia wooden bike. Made in Latvia using hardwood, and finished to a stunning spec, I took this beauty out for a spin on the runway. Astonishingly light, a Materia bike is a work of beauty and craftsmanship.
SwiftyONE MARINE and SwiftyZERO adult kick-scooter
The SwiftyONE Marine foldable scooter weighs an impressive 7.8kg and happily fits into the hold of a private plane, or stows away on a boat due to its slim profile. Handy for scooting around airports or out of town marinas.
