This week the Salon Prive supercar show and Concours d’Elégance takes place in London, running from September 3 to 5 at Syon House. A jamboree of stridently-coloured trousers, tiny delicious things on silver platters, gigantic watches on tanned wrists, and truly amazing cars.
If you’re near our fine capital, we highly recommend popping in for a look around. Those trousers are something else. But if you can’t make it, here are just ten things you’ll have missed…
Ferrari 212 Inter Coupe
Our favourite car in Salon Prive’s ‘dramatic coachwork’ category is this Ferrari. Interestingly, the 212 received attention from a number of coachbuilders in the early 1950s, and there are numerous incarnations of the sports car, some of them far prettier than others. Designed by Vignale, this is one of the more graceful versions.
