  • Yesterday I went down to Blenheim Palace for the Salon Prive Supercar Show, a new event for me although the Salon Prive itself was celebrating its 10th year.

    It was an event that elicited a number of emotions, some good, some bad (the bad being that photographer etiquette was awful, and someone dropping their camera onto the bonnet of a Bugatti to name but two).

    However, for me, it was a chance to see some cars you just don't get to see unless you live around or frequent Kensington High Street - Bugatti's, Pagani's, Laborghini's etc. Some of the cars highlighted the close relationship between money and bad taste (foot high gold lettering down the side of your Aventador anyone?) but it was also an opportunity to see a few boyhood poster cars in the flesh - the Silver Bugatti EB110 Supersport prototype being one of them.

    I'll post a few photos from the event over the coming weeks as I pick my way through what I took - I've got a feeling the clone tool will be making itself known again due to the crowds of people. Even turning up and getting in an hour before the gates opened and leaving as the gates closed didn't give opportunity to get many photos of the cars without people pouring over these cars like school boys.

    Thanks to Matt, the owner of this beautiful Veyron, for parking the car where he did, rather than in amongst all the others at the end of the day. Eventually the crowds left and my patience was rewarded with a shot sans-people.
