Once again, the Oxfordshire countryside was recently filled with the V12 punch from some of the world’s rarest and most expensive super cars as Salon Privé roared into life at Blenheim Palace.
The three-day celebration of the finest in automotive excellence brought together a heady mix of collectors, enthusiasts and manufacturers in the glorious surroundings of one of the country’s most spectacular country houses. And to the delight of those lucky enough to own a multi-million pound convertible, the weather didn’t disappoint either!
The Chubb Concours D’Elegance
Now in its ninth year, the Chubb Concours D’Elegance at Salon Privé showcased over 70 classic and rare supercars and motorbikes; many of which are insured by Chubb. The pressure mounted as they lined-up for the esteemed judging panel, headed by five-times Le Mans winner and racing legend, Derek Bell MBE.
Best in Show this year was the absolutely exquisite Alfa Romeo 3000CM ‘Superflow’ (pictured), a one-off vehicle with a highly unusual glass canopy and simply stunning design by Pininfarina.
Elsewhere, the inaugural ‘Chubb Masters’ event celebrated 70 years of motoring excellence with Ferrari. On show were classic and rare Ferraris from the late ‘40s through to the present day with the epic Ferrari LaFerrari.
Monaco brought to life in the Chubb Lounge!
In the Chubb Lounge, we hosted a modern day version of the classic 1966 Monaco F1 Grand Prix with five highly sophisticated race simulators. Guests were invited to test their race craft against a benchmark lap set by Derek Bell MBE as we entertained over 300 broker partners and their clients and prospects in the Chubb Lounge.
Salon Privé certainly deserves its place as one of the most renowned luxury automotive events in the world. Here at Chubb, we are proud of our long-term commitment to the event and once again want to thank our broker partners and their clients for all their support in helping shape this fabulous event.
