About Concorde

The Aérospatiale/BAC Concorde is a Franco-British turbojet-powered supersonic airliner that was operated from 1976 until 2003 by Air France and British Airways. The Concorde had a maximum speed over twice the speed of sound, at Mach 2.04 (1,354 mph or 2,180 km/h). 

The Concorde is one of only two supersonic jetliner models to operate commercially (the other is the Soviet-built Tupolev Tu-144, which operated in the late 1970s).

The Rolls-Royce Olympus 593 engine that allowed the Concorde to break the sound barrier is based on the engines employed in the RAF's Avro Vulcan strategic bomber. The Vulcan bomber plays a vital part in the James Bond movie Thunderball when it is hijacked by SPECTRE.

Aston Martin Bristol has a special connection to the Concorde as the first UK-built Concorde took to the skies for the very first time from Filton airfield on 9 April 1969, right next door to Aston Martin Bristol. And today, AM Bristol's state-of-the-art workshop looks out over the old runway, which is now home to Aerospace Bristol, Concorde’s final resting place (visit the website aerospacebristol.org for more about this location).

The 5 UK cars had the jet tailpipes and 3 of them had the titanium exhaust upgrade to mimic the vistral engine acoustics of Concorde. G-BOAC has both. The 5 overseas cars sadly missed out on these fittings due to Brexit deadlines. 

The engine plaque has been signed by the original Chief Concorde Engineer Mr John Briston.

Concordes (3 Prototypes G-BSST, G-AXDN & G-BBDG and 7 commercial aircraft G-BOAA, G-BOAB, G-BOAC, G-BOAD, G-BOAE, G-BOAF and G-BOAG), and the car on offer has "G-BOAC" as its designation.

The G-BOAC was the second Concorde to be delivered and is considered to be the flagship of the fleet as it carries the registration BOAC, which happen to be the initials of British Overseas Airways Corporation, the airline that merged with BEA (British European Airways) to form British Airways.
