Dick Lovett Sporting were delighted to attend one of the UK's most prestigious automotive events, Salon Privé.
Salon Privé celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2015 at a magnificent new location, Blenheim Palace.
Building on the achievements of a remarkable decade, which included establishing its Concours d'Elégance as one of the top 3 most prestigious classic car events in the world, the move to Blenheim Palace delivered a destination venue perfectly aligned to the allure and reputation of Salon Privé.
Dick Lovett Sporting were in attendance on all three days with two of our most beautiful cars, a Ferrari 275 GTB with unique history, and a Porsche Carrera GT. Both of our cars were selected by the Salon Privé judges to take the highly coveted parade tour around the stunning grounds of Blenheim Palace. More information of each of the cars can be found below.
Our friendly specialist team were on hand throughout the event hosting our select guests, as well as being on hand to chat to visitors to the event. We’d like to thank all guest that attended with us and we hope you enjoyed the fabulous experience.
The Ferrari 275 was designed by Carrozzeria Scaglietti as a two-seat front-engined GT Ferrari, produced between 1964 and 1968.
Our car was produced in late 1964 and is a two-cam, three Weber carburettor, steel body model. This particular car was the first of only 46 right hand drive cars produced and featured at the 1964 London Motor Show. The car comes complete with an extensive history of previous owners and various stages of mechanical prep work carried out over the years. Ferrari Classiche Certification has been submitted.
First unveiled at the Paris Motor Show 2000, the Porsche Carrera GT
took the hypercar world by storm when production officially began in
At the heart of the Carrera GT lies a monstrous 5.7-litre V-10 engine, the first V10 produced by Porsche. Performance is incredible, with 605 horsepower and 435 foot-pounds of torque. The Carrera GT powers from 0–60 mph in 3.6 seconds and onto a top speed of 205 mph. Registered in 2006, this particular example has covered just over 6,000 miles and has had three owners since.
