Salon Prive to celebrate Ferrari's 70th year
The last day of this year’s Salon Privé Concours Masters will be dedicated to Ferrari as the Italian brand turns 70
The 70th anniversary of Ferrari will be celebrated at this year’s Salon Privé Concours Masters, which takes place from 31 August to 2 September at Blenheim Palace.
The event’s final day will be dedicated to the marque’s seven-decade history with a tribute show featuring 70 models from across the brand’s history.
The line-up stretches from the oldest surviving model in Britain, a 1949 Ferrari Tipo 166 Inter Coupé Touring, to one of the newest, a 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta. Between them will be iconic models such as a 1956 250 GT Berlinetta TdF, a 1977 308 GTB and a 1990 Ferrari F40. Others can be viewed in our gallery above.
Judging of the Ferrari section of the Salon Privé is expected to be less scrutinous than the regular part of the Concours, because it will focus more on celebrating Ferrari than rewarding owners of the cleanest examples.
Chief judge for the Ferrari event will be five-times Le Mans winner Derek Bell. He said: “Considering Enzo Ferrari gave me my first professional drive, Formula 1 race and Le Mans outing, I’m obviously very excited to celebrate 70 Years of Ferrari with the Salon Privé team.
“I’ve been judging cars at Salon Privé for ten years now and the move to the new home of Blenheim Palace is without doubt one of the most significant enhancements in its time. However, the new Concours Masters represents another milestone turning-point for Salon Privé and I’m very excited to be heading up the judging team.”
