The Salon Prive Concours d’Elegance 2014 was held 3–5 September at the 200-acre Syon Park in London. More than 4,000 people enjoyed the selection of 100 cars and bikes on display at the 9th annual event, held over three days in West London.
The three-day Salon Prive 2014 includes the Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elegance on Wednesday, Boodles Ladies’ Day and the Salon Prive Sale and the Royal College of Art ‘Concours of the Future’ design exhibition on Thursday, the British Supercar Show on Friday and the EFG Art and Memorabilia Fair every day.
The 2014 edition of Salon Prive started with a Tour led by Derek Bell MBE that departed from the Royal Automotive Club at Woodcote Park, and then onto the surroundings of Wilton House – the historic Wiltshire home of The Earl of Pembroke. After lunch the more than 60 car cavalcade of classics and supercars made the journey back to Syon Park, home to Salon Prive.
The Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elegance saw a host of vehicles competing for the Best in Show award. Chief Judge for the day was none other than racing legend and 5-times Le Mans winner Derek Bell MBE and from one British legend to another it was the 1954 Jaguar D-Type owned by Peter Neumark which went on to win the top prize. The People’s Choice award was presented to the 1953 Delahaye Type 235 MS Coupe by Chapron.
The British Supercar Lawn was highlighted by the one-off Ferrari F12 TRS, three LaFerraris, a Pagani Huayra, Mclaren P1 and a Bugatti Veyron, amongst others.
Similar to the 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 events, Senior Photographer Tim Scott also documented the Salon Prive Concours 2014 with the following images from Syon House, the London home of the 12th Duke of Northumberland.
