The well-established Salon Privé has announced a brand-new concours for this year, coming to London’s Royal Hospital Chelsea on 21-23 April – and tickets are available now.

Called Salon Privé London, it will see classic and new cars alike come together at an event that hopes to combine glamour with a relaxed and vibrant garden-party atmosphere.

Manufacturers will be on site to unveil new models to the world for the first time, but the classics will take centre stage in a new initiative, the Concours de Vente.

This is a concours with a difference, because the 60 classic cars contesting the top gong are also vying for another prize – a new owner.

That’s because they will all be for sale, so you could find yourself going home with more than you anticipate.

This new-for-2022 event is in addition to the existing Salon Privé, which returns to Blenheim Palace for its 17th edition on 31 August-4 September, with a special celebration of Ferrari’s 75th anniversary.
