Salon Privé dedicates its final day to Ferrari’s 70th anniversary
Concours Masters will present a ‘Tribute to 70 Years of Ferrari’, showcasing 70 stunning cars from Maranello
Salon Privé has announced that this year's show will dedicate its final day to Ferrari’s 70th anniversary, by showcasing 70 stunning cars on the lawn of Blenheim Palace.
Over the course of Saturday 2nd September, guests will be treated to a timeline of 70 special models from the Maranello-based marque.
The entry list for Concours Masters includes the UK’s oldest-surviving 1949 Ferrari Tipo 166 Inter Coupe Touring, which has competed and finished no less than four Mille Miglias in its lifetime. This particular example, the eighth road car ever made by the marque, is the fourth Tipo 166 Inter with a Touring body of a total of 11 produced.
The extremely rare Ferrari 166 Inter Coupe Touring will also be joined by a very rare UK-supplied 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta, ‘book-ending’ 70 years of incredible automobiles from the world’s most iconic sports car creator.
Following on from the long-standing Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance, Concours Masters will make Salon Privé the first event in the world to host two Concours during the same event.
“Considering Enzo Ferrari gave me my first professional drive, Formula 1 race, and first Le Mans, I’m obviously very excited to celebrate 70 Years of Ferrari with the Salon Privé team,” said Chief Judge and five-times Le Mans winner, Derek Bell.
“I’ve been judging cars at Salon Privé for ten years now and the move to the new home of Blenheim Palace is without doubt one of the most significant enhancements in its time. However, the new Concours Masters represents another milestone turning-point for Salon Privé and I’m very excited to be heading up the judging team.”
