Salon Privé Hospitality

Thursday 30th August – Saturday 1st September 2018

The Salon Privé is one of the longest running and most established luxury automotive events in the world, located in a stunning setting, the lawns right in front of Blenheim Palace.

Salon Privé remains the only event to focus solely on the prestige sector with privately owned classic cars from collections from all over the world. This together with luxury brands, hypercars and supercar manufactures such as Aston Martin, Bentley, Bugatti, Ferrari and Lamborghini, to name but a few, creates an extravagant and quintessentially English garden party and social day out. Blenheim Palace, (regarded as ‘Britain’s Greatest Palace’) steeped in history and famed as the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, provides an exquisite backdrop for this luxury show.

Salon Privé is a three day event where cars from all classes & eras are on display for guests to view at their leisure. The world’s best cars then take to the parade route directly in front of Blenheim Palace to show off their elegance and mechanical beauty.

Each of the three days of Salon Privé provides something different. Thursday is Concour d’Elégance Day which ranks as one of the world’s most prestigious Concours in the world alongside Amelia Island, Pebble Beach and Villa d’Este. On this day the classic cars take the spotlight with all being paraded and judged by a panel of experts.

Friday is Ladies’ Day where fashion, style and socialising is the order of the day. The Salon Privé is the only event in the world which features two Concours within the same event with Concour Masters’ Day on Saturday. Here you can indulge in the celebration of an iconic sports car manufacturer - Porsche.

Salon Privé will be celebrating 70 years of Porsche and will be displaying models from the 1930’s all the way up to the present day.
