The organisers of the prestigious Salon Privé have concocted another automotive event of epic proportions that will make practically any car enthusiast weak at the knees. Hosted at the illustrious Blenheim Palace, on Sunday 3 September, more than 350 cars will convene to participate in competitions and the epitome of automotive spectacle.
The focal point of the show will be the Pirelli Prestige & Performance Competition, exhibiting 80 of the world’s most prominent and famed supercars and hypercars built as of 1976. An interesting combination of legendary classics and modern marvels will thereby compete at the same event, providing enough diversity and eminence for almost anyone to appreciate. Amongst the eight pre-selected categories are ‘Hypercars from the Lawn’, ‘Super Roadsters’, ‘30th Anniversary of the Ferrari F40’, and ‘Porsche 911 Targa’. The winners of their respective classes will give a parade in the late afternoon, environed by the breath-taking Oxfordshire World Heritage Site.
The entirety of the show will feature a wide array of manufacturers, such as Lamborghini, McLaren, Aston Martin, Maserati, Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Koenigsegg, Pagani, Noble, Rimac, and Zenvo. Though one manufacturer will be the pinnacle, in physical presence and automotive history: Ferarri. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Ferrari Owners’ Club and the 70th anniversary of Ferrari itself, 150 prancing horses are expected to represent the Italian brand during the show.
Andrew Bagley, Co-Founder of Blenheim Palace Classic & Supercar Show had the following to say about the event: “This truly is a must-attend event for every car lover and enthusiast; it is an unmissable opportunity to see the most extravagant and spectacular hypercars, supercars and classic cars on the planet, all at the most affordable price imaginable”.
Indeed, we can only agree with Mr. Bagley: at only £15.30 for an adult ticket, the event is a no-brainer for any car enthusiast in the vicinity.
