The Octane Collection was at Salon Privé London in its inaugural 2022 year and the organisers are delighted to welcome the passionate Horsham dealer back for 2024. The Octane Collection specialises in the very best low-mileage, low-owner and much-treasured cars – something it admits is not always easy to do with such a limited supply of treasured automobiles. It has just revealed that its entry for 2024 will be a stunning gold 1974 BMW E9 3.0 CSL.

I can’t wait to see the full array of classic exotica our loyal dealer partners will be bringing to Royal Hospital Chelsea this year,” said Salon Privé London director David Bagley. “Our Concours de Vente is unique in the world of classic car events as it brings together the experience of a concours with the opportunity to actually purchase the entries themselves. For anyone looking to buy or sell a classic car in the capital, this is the place to be.”

About Royal Hospital Chelsea

The Royal Hospital Chelsea, London SW3 4SR, was established over 300 years ago during the reign of King Charles II, whose vision for a home for veteran soldiers was brought to life by Sir Christopher Wren. King Charles II’s understanding that the country owes a debt of gratitude to its old soldiers informs the spirit of the Royal Hospital today.

The residents of the Royal Hospital, known the world over as Chelsea Pensioners, are all retired soldiers of the British Army. To this day, the Royal Hospital provides care and comradeship to veterans in recognition of their loyal service to the nation.

Located in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea in the heart of West London, the Hospital is highly accessible by road, rail and tube from throughout the capital and beyond.

Already established as a prestigious city venue through long-term associations with the likes of RHS Chelsea Flower Show and Masterpiece Art Fair, the Royal Hospital Chelsea was a natural choice for Salon Privé London and a suitable counterpart to the August venue, Blenheim Palace.
