Salon Prive DisplayThis is the third year of the Salon Privé – London’s most exclusive and largest motor show. At the event there will be close to 120 classic and modern supercars that will be up for display on the lawns at the Hurlingham Club. These will include some supercars that have just recently been released which include the Maserati GranTurismo S, Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe, Bugatti Veyron Hermes, Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, and the Antas.

In addition, there are plenty of marques new to this year’s Salon Privé, such as Porsche, Jaguar, GBR, Breckland Technology, Keating Supercars Ltd., Avro Motor Cars Ltd. (with the Avro 720 Mirage), Overfinch and Tesla – which is arriving from the US with one car for display and one for test-driving.

Turning to the classics, the spectacular array offers such delights as Steve McQueen’s Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, making its UK debut, as is James Coburn’s Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder, the car recently acquired by Chris Evans for a record $11.9 million. Then there’s the Ferrari 250 GTO, Jaguar D-type, Isdera Imperator 108i (the last built), Lancia Stratos (the original 1970 Turin show car), Aston Martin DBR1 and Pagani Zonda Roadster. See below, for a full list of entries in the Concours d’Elégance.

Complementing the motor cars will be a display of luxury brands and products which this year includes motor boats from Riva and the Dutch company, Silvestris – the latter launching its new 23-foot Sports Cabriolet at the event.
