Salon Privé has released stunning B-roll footage of its Preview day recently held at spectacular Blenheim Palace for use by international media.

Celebrating its tenth anniversary, ten spectacular cars were on display, representing key elements of the event including the Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance, regarded as one of the top three most prominent classic car events in the world, and the newly introduced ‘Speed & Style’ supercar competition.

The Hypercar Collection was represented by the current ‘top 3’ – the McLaren P1, Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder, and alongside, sat the world’s first ‘mega-car’, the Koenigsegg One-1 – with the baroque Blenheim Palace creating the perfect backdrop.

Alongside the hypercars, the line-up of dazzling cars included a Bentley Speed Six (Old Number Three), Lamborghini Countach 5000s, Bugatti EB110 Super Sport, Ferrari 308 GTB, Ferrari 330GTC and Porsche 904GTS.
