The upmarket vehicles, worth in excess of £20m, included a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition - one of only five worldwide and the only one in Europe - a Mercedes AMG 300SL built for the Sultan of Brunei, and British tycoon Paul Bailey's supercar 'Holy Trinity' - LaFerrari, 918 Spyder and P1.
The invitation-only event, organised by supercar owners club Supercar Driver, was held at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome and Proving Ground on Sunday (March 29) to mark the start of the motoring season.
Event organiser Adam Thorby, owner of Supercar Driver, said: "The turnout from members was staggering considering the forecast which was heavy rain all day.
"You would be lucky to see any one of those cars out in the height of summer, let alone the full group in less than ideal conditions.
"It is testament to our members who had committed to the event and have bought their cars to use them, whatever the weather."
While these high-performance cars would normally stay firmly inside the garage in such treacherous weather conditions, the owners were happy to turn out despite the rain to raise nearly £5,000 for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospital.
The Sheffield-based charity - who Supercar Driver have been supporting since their first event, raising more than £20,000 in the process - offers care and support to children with shortened life expectancy.
Other cars on display at the meet included a stunning blue Pagani Zonda S Roadster, a Ford GT 720 Mirage - one of just three such cars in existence - and a rare 70s Ferrari Daytona, as well as a BAC Mono driven by Le Mans Champion Oliver Webb.
Adam added: "The photoshoot on the runway was evidence of typical British weather, however it didn't put off these brave souls who were patient while we arranged the cars and jets.
"We are delighted with how the event has been received and I'm already underway planning the 2016 event - watch this space."
