The Salon Prive 2016 will be staged on the impressive grounds of Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, England from 1-3 September. The 11th annual event will feature a mixture of classic cars, fashion and supercars.
Salon Prive’s three-day format returns in 2016, commencing with the Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elegance Judging Day on Thursday 1st September. The celebrations continue with the Boodles Ladies’ Day on Friday 2nd September along with the Salon Prive Sale, before the Salon Prive Supercar Show finale on Saturday 3rd September.
The Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elegance and Pirelli Prestige and Performance Competition recognise achievements in the art of the automobile. Last year’s winners included the 1953 land speed record Jaguar XK120 ‘Jabbeke’ and the 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari. (See 2015 photo gallery).
This year’s event will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic Lamborghini Miura, the car recognised as the origin of the modern supercar. Guests can also get up close to the latest concept cars, hypercars and enjoy car parades throughout the day.
Couture lovers are well catered for with, in addition to Boodles Ladies’ Day, the stand-alone Luxury Shopping Village and the EFG Art and Memorabilia Fair. All Salon Prive guests can relax throughout the three days with Pommery Champagne, Lobster Luncheon and English Afternoon Tea.
With over 5,000 guests attending the new public Pirelli Prestige and Performance Competition alone during last year’s Supercar Show, Salon Prive announced the competition’s return for the second year running. The modern-day twist on a Concours competition will see over 80 supercars, manufactured from 1976 to present day, on display in the Great Court for judging, parades and awards ceremonies.
