Blenheim Palace will throw open its gates to give car enthusiasts a rare chance to marvel at more than 1,000 super and hypercars next month.

Sunday 5 September promises fun for all the family when the lawns of the UNESCO World Heritage Site play host to an astonishing collection of vehicles for Salon Privé Classic & Supercar.

The unique event attracts the world’s greatest super and luxury car manufacturers who will be showcasing their latest, fastest and most desirable models.

Director David Bagley said: “Sunday should be very special this year, thanks not only to the supercars and classics on the South Lawn, but also the iconic rally cars that will be in action on the hill. We’re very grateful to Mark Constanduros and Steve Davies of Ralli22 for curating such a spectacular group of cars, and to see rally machinery let loose at Blenheim Palace will be unforgettable.”

For the first time in the event’s history, visitors can see and hear the very latest super and hypercars in action, as they take to the hill for the inaugural Salon Privé Hill Sprint, commentated on by British racing driver and TV personality Tiff Needell.

With special model anniversaries being celebrated, plus food concessions, bars and live entertainment, it’s a day for the whole family to enjoy.

There is also a curated display entitled ‘World Rally Champions’, featuring 30 rarely seen cars driven in period by rallying greats during their illustrious careers.

On the South Lawn the public’s pulses will be racing with the most impressive super and hyper cars, alongside classic specialists and luxury brands.

Luxury brands of all shapes and sizes will surround the lawn and this year also sees the exciting launch of Salon Privé TIME, the luxury watch fair which presents some of the world’s leading watch brands.

On the other side of the palace, the north lawn will come alive with displays from eclectic super and performance clubs covering more than 1,000 cars.

The day will also celebrate 60 years of the iconic Jaguar E-type and with 25 global, European and UK debuts at last year’s event, Salon Privé is the place to be when it comes to new cars. Walk the lawns, meet the manufacturers and even test-drive the latest models on the day.

Tickets for Sunday 5 September can be sourced through the Salon Privé website. The day runs from 9.00am until 5pm.
