In a garden party-like atmosphere visitors to this three-day extravaganza will get to see both classic and modern cars. Amongst the highlights will be vehicles owned by the musician Jay Kay and businessman Lord Bamford and a stunning 1958 Ferrari 250 GT California Spider LWB.

 

On Thursday, Silverstone Auctions will conduct an auction of cars and motorcycles at the event. Whilst the star lot is said to be the Stradale Collection of 14 grouped road-going cars, The Steeple Times has already featured three other stunning vehicles that will be sold. For those that missed them, the first is the first ever Range Rover; the second is a Bentley from the Brunei royal household and the third is a Rolls-Royce that inspired the design of the current Wraith.

 

Salon Privé 2014 begins on Wednesday 3rd September and concludes on Friday 5th September. Tickets start at £90 for an afternoon ticket and rise to £294 for an all day, full hospitality package. They can be bought by clicking here.
