Organizers of Britain’s Salon Prive provided a preview of their 10th anniversary event by displaying 10 cars at Blenheim Palace, the concours’ new site.
“The impressive display of hand-picked cars clearly set the tone for what can be expected in September, when we also welcome world-renowned luxury and lifestyle brands and the artists also on display,” said Salon Prive co-founder David Bagley.
“It was wonderful to see so many amazing cars here today,” the 12th Duke of Marlborough said of the preview at his family’s property, which was the birthplace of Winston Churchill. “My family and I are very much looking forward to welcoming Salon Privé to Blenheim Palace in September for its tenth anniversary celebrations, and hopefully, for many years to come.”
The Salon Prive was built around a traditional concours d’elegance, but this fall will introduce a new “Speed & Style” competition for contemporary supercars, and thus the presence at the preview of a McLaren P1, Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder and Koenigsegg One-1 as well as a Bentley Speed Six (Old Number Three), a Porsche 904GTS, Lamborghini Countach 5000S, Bugatti EB110 Super Sport and 308 FTB and 330GTC Ferraris.
Scheduled for September 3-5, Salon Prive also includes a Tour d’Elegance, Ladies’ Day activities, an art and memorabilia fair and a Silverstone auction.
