The Concours is everything an internationally acclaimed event should be – a display of exclusive and exceptional historic cars and motorcycles.These classics have an important part to play in history, they each have their own story to tell and allow us to go back in time to see the spectacular automobile designs created by these masterful engineers. Represented at this year's Event are Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Porsche Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, Norton, Yamaha, Triumph amongst other superb and legendary marques. Entry is by invitation only.
A high calibre jury, chaired by Derek Bell, former British Grand Prix racing driver, will judge the participating vehicles. Awards will be presented for Class Winner, Class Runner-up, Class 3rd place and 8 Special Prizes awarded for the likes of Best Interior, Best Design as well as the much coveted People's Choice and of course the grand finale prize, Best of Show.
Guests are treated to a staggering display of vintage Super and Luxury Cars, all beautifully and openly displayed on the lawns of this privately-owned state house, Syon Park. The rarity and exclusivity of many of these historic vehicles further endorses the organisers' claim to it being the principal and most significant Concours d'Elégance in the UK.
With its high profile guests and mixture of live performances and innovative activities, Salon Privé has secured its place as an event of great magnitude on the English Social Calendar.
