Salon Privé Concours d’Elégance Full List Revealed

Salon Privé
Bentley 3-Litre Vanden Plas 'Le Mans'

If you’re heading to Blenheim Palace for this year’s Salon Privé here’s the impressive Concours d’Elégance list in full…

The complete Salon Privé Concours d’Elégance entry list has finally been released and will contain no less than 68 motor cars and 15 motorcycles spanning more than a century.

It’s 60 years since Jaguar introduced its groundbreaking E-type, and this motoring milestone will be celebrated with a class dedicated to the Malcolm Sayer-designed sports car.

Those contesting the Concours d’Elégance include the famous low-drag Lightweight that was raced in period by German duo Peter Lindner and Peter Nöcker. The car was painstakingly rebuilt by marque specialist Classic Motor Cars more than 40 years after its tragic accident during the 1964 Paris 1000km.

There’s no show without the odd Bentley or three and 2021 is no different with a number of significant classics taking centre-stage, including a 3 Litre that was built at the Cricklewood factory specifically for the 1927 Le Mans 24 Hours.

This was in the midst of the ‘Bentley Boy’ domination of the French endurance classic, and although YF 2503 got entangled in the infamous accident that also eliminated one of the other Bentleys, it survived to enjoy a long and illustrious competition career through the 1920 and 1930s.

Joining the Pre-War Sports Class is a 1925 3 Litre – the ninth of only 18 Super Sports models built, and one of only four to retain its original bodywork – and a 1926 4½ Litre that was owned by Woolf Barnato. Three times a Le Mans winner for the marque, Barnato saved Bentley from collapse when he bought the company in 1926.

Other rarities include one of only six Austin-Healey 100s to be converted into a coupé by Belgian coachbuilder D’Ieteren will be part of the Post-War Closed (British) Class, while the Post-War Open Class features a Talbot-Lago T26 Grand Sport that was a star of the concours d’elégance scene in France in the early 1950s, and which features unique Franay cabriolet coachwork.
