Salon Privé 2012, Syon Park (London, UK)
part I : Supercars and concept cars

First visit of Salon Privé at Syon Park, in the West of London for the 7th edition of this select event. The weather was perfect and the level of exhibited cars was really astonishing, with the classy Syon Castle in background.
Salon Privé is an event that can be divided in two parts, an exhibition of actual cars / concept cars (part I), and a meeting of collectible classic cars, with a concours of Elegance (part II, next update). In this first part, Salon Privé is the occasion for new birth sport cars factories to show their creations (Rimac, Renovatio, Trident...), to the well known brands to expose the last declinations (Aston Martin V12 Vantage Volante, Vanquish II, Ferrari California 30 or Mercedes SLS Roadster) and to the luxury dealers to prospect for potential clients (J. Macari, F. Dale, Landmark...). Two exhibitions held the limelight : a Gulf sponsored racing cars retrospective, with a large part of these cars already seen during Rétromobile 2011, but more photogenic outdoor, and a special tribute to the italian coachbuilder Touring, with the last styling studies (Gumpert Tornante, Maserati A8GCS, Alfa Romeo Disco Volante 2012) and a nice selection of Touring designed sport cars of the sixties (but you will have to wait for the next update!).
