What is Salon Privé?

“A Concours d’Elégance in the truest sense, Salon Privé is the most luxurious of garden parties set against the backdrop of ‘Britain’s Greatest Palace’, Blenheim Palace. Presenting the finest collection of supercars, hypercars and classic cars, along with a luxury retail village and exquisite cuisine, it is a truly unique experience.”

Amongst the cars on display will be 2 very rare UK delivered 356 4 Cam Carrera’s as well as a right hand drive 1955 Porsche 356 PreA Cabriolet.

Below is a sneak preview of 4 of the Export 56 cars on display at Salon Privé 2017:


No. 1 – 1957 Porsche 356a 1500 GS Carrera Coupe (1 of 10 RHD cars built).

An extremely rare Right Hand Drive, 356A Carrera 1500 GS ‘Sunroof’ Coupe. It is thought that as few as ten or eleven 356A Carrera’s were built to RHD specification, of which barely half are thought to survive today.

No. 2 – 1963 Porsche 356BT6 Carrera 2 Coupe (1 of 12 RHD cars built).

This Carrera 2 was built by Porsche on the 18th of April 1963 and supplied directly to A.F.N. Motors in England. It was sold to a Mr M. Hawley of Highgate in Birmingham on the 7th May 1963.

It is believed that only 12 Carrera 2 coupes were produced in right hand drive.

No. 3 – 1955 Porsche 356 PreA Cabriolet – Original UK delivered car. Restored to original factory specification, pearl grey with chocolate brown leather interior.

This PreA cabriolet has undergone a 3 year restoration and is 1 of only 10 RHD cars supplied to the UK in that model year. We believe only 2 other PreA cabriolets are known to still exist and this car is the only one to retain its original engine and gearbox.

No. 4 – 1971 Porsche 911 2.2S Coupe in Gold Metallic (1 of 44 RHD cars built).

This rare car has undergone a 2 year restoration in our workshops and is believed to be the only UK, RHD 2.2S delivered in this special order colour.
