Since its inauguration nine years ago, Salon Privé has evolved into a boutique motor show, wowing automotive enthusiasts with its unique mix of classic vehicles and premium supercars from around the world. Following the first day's Concours d’Elegance, collectors have the chance to snap up rare gems by way of the Salon Privé Sale, with the British Supercar Show rounding out the event on the third and final day. Join Gizmag as we cast our eye over the assortment of stunning automobiles on display last week at London's Syon Park.
While Ferrari's were in abundance, it was the F12 TRS that stole the show. Taking out the award for the Most Spectacular Hypercar, the F12 TRS is an open-roofed version of Ferrari's Berlinetta (also on show) and is said to be worth more than US$4 million. The equally impressive Lamborghini Huracán was awarded Most Spectacular Supercar, while a vintage 1955 Jaguar D-Type won Best in Show at the Concours d’Elegance.
