Salon Privé 2016 | UK Car Show
Salon Privé, the Luxury Supercar Show & Concours d’Elégance, took place from Thursday 1st to Saturday 3rd September 2016 at Blenheim Palace, UK and attracted over 12,000 visitors to the world-renowned event.
“It is without question our greatest event in our short 11-year history and we were delighted with the unanimous response from guests, exhibitors and sponsors alike,” said Andrew Bagley, Managing Director.
With over 200 display cars across the three-day event, spanning 76 different marques, the jaw-dropping 1956 Ferrari 500 Testa Rossa took the Best of Show crown at the prestigious Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance, meanwhile in the modern-day concours the Pagani Zonda 760RS drove away with the overall winning silverware for the Pirelli Prestige & Performance Competition.
“As an avid car enthusiast I was thrilled to host Salon Privé at Blenheim for a second consecutive year,” said His Grace the 12th Duke of Marlborough. “It was an amazing three days here with a spectacular array of cars and motor cycles from veteran, vintage to modern and classics, and it was wonderful to see so many enthusiasts at the event. I am looking forward very much to welcoming Salon Privé back next year and for many years to come, as this event has become one of the highlights of our season.”
Showcased on the South Lawn of the World Heritage Site were a number of exciting UK debuts, including the striking Lamborghini Centenario Coupé, the British-made Bristol BULLET and the global reveal of the Morgan EV3 1909 Edition made in association with Selfridges alongside the exclusive debut of the Koenigsegg Agera RS 'Naraya'.
