Past Winners

1948 Talbot Lago T26 GS Fastback Coupé wins BEST OF SHOW at the 2019 Salon Privé Concours d’Elégance.

This distinctive Talbot-Lago was first shown to the public one year after its completion at the 1949 Paris Salon, the car being bodied by Figoni to a commission by Mr. Fayolle, the first owner also known as the ‘Zipper King’. For this reason, there is a string of horizontal chrome strips above the center headlight, this possibly being the only car in the world with a zipper on the bonnet!

1933 Bugatti Type 55 Roadster received top honours as BEST OF SHOW at the 2018 Salon Privé Concours d’Elégance.

Exquisitely styled by Ettore Bugatti’s eldest son, Jean, around 16 examples of the Type 55 Roadster were made, with just five cars still retaining their original coachwork and mechanicals. This particular Type 55 Jean Bugatti Roadster (Chassis No. 55234) is widely considered to be the most original specimen as it is the only unrestored example, with an genuine sub-50,000 mileage.

Best of Show 2017 went to a very rare and special 1960 Alfa Romeo 6C 3000 CM Pininfarina Superflow IV. Recently shown at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in May, it was an honour and a privilege to display it on the Blenheim Palace lawns, amongst some of the most important collectors in the world.
