With final preparations now in full swing, brothers Andrew and David Bagley have a clear message – “Get set for the greatest Salon Privé ever!
“The diversity and origins of manufacturers attending this year is testimony to how important Salon Privé has become. It really is a great privilege for us to host so many important debuts in one year,” they add.
Now in its 14th year, Salon Privé returns to Blenheim Palace from Thursday – Sunday with their most sensational line-up to date. For four days, Blenheim Palace along with neighbouring Woodstock, will reverberate to the sound of V8s & V12s as they parade through the Palace grounds and local countryside.
Presenting the finest collection of supercars, hypercars and classic cars, along with a luxury retail village and exquisite cuisine, it is a truly unique experience, set out over three days.
And thanks to the newly launched Salon Privé Classic & Supercar on Sunday September 8, which incorporates the Lockton Club Trophy, it now has a more affordable public day option for the whole family to enjoy.
In terms of what to look out for: The UK, Italy, Austria, Australia, Dubai, Croatia, Slovenia, France, Germany and Netherlands will all be flying their flags at this year’s event proudly displaying their latest creations and with the event now sold out, confirmed automotive brands are as follows: Alpine, Aston Martin, Ateliers Diva, Austro Daimler, Bentley, Brabham Automotive, Dallara, Ferrari, Jannarelly, Lamborghini, Maserati, McLaren, Pagani, PAL-V, Automobili Pininfarina, Puritalia Automobili, Rimac Automobili, Tushek and W Motors.
This list equates to tens of thousands of normally aspirated, hybrid and fully electric BHP! 0-60mph in the low to mid 2 seconds is not an uncommon statistic on the lawn. But one car – the Rimac C_Two, officially the fastest accelerating car in the world, can manage it in just 1.85 seconds! Top speeds of 200mph plus are commonplace however amongst the majority of these brands with even the SUVs not far off that figure.
Not to be outdone by the debuts, other manufacturers will be showcasing their latest models, with the Alpine A110S, Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante, Bentley GTC V8 and Flying Spur, Ferrari 812 Superfast and Portofino, Lamborghini EVO Spyder and Coupe, Maserati V8 Levante Trofeo, McLaren GT and Porsche 992 Carrera 4S all on the lawn.
