Long term Lotus dealer Bell & Covill took pride of place at the 2014 Salon Privé in the grounds of Syon House in West London displaying the current Lotus model range of Elise, Exige S and Evora. With a prime central position in the show, B&C were hugely busy throughout the 3 days of the event with the cars receiving lots of attention and Jamie Matthews, Lotus Sales Manager at Bell & Colvill said:
Salon Prive is a aspiration show for all things cars and Lotus fits beautifully into the surroundings from the performance note and represents far easier attainability for the guests attending.
A show like no other, Salon Privé is a 3 day event featuring an assembly of exotic cars rarely seen together elsewhere with a focus on rare classics and hypercars. With a Concours D’Elegance featuring a 1954 Jaguar D-Type which won ‘Best of Show’, 1939 Bentley 4.25 Litre MX, 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4, 1934 Rolls Royce Phantom II, 1935 SS1 Four Light Saloon, 1955 Maserati 300S and 1962 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato amongst others the quality of cars on show was exceptional. From the more modern era, there was a huge selection of super and hyper cars including the Ferrari F12 TRS (rumoured to cost some £6.5m!), Lamborghini Huracan, Ferrari LaFerrari (in green and belonging to Jay-Kay of Jamiroquai), BMW i8, Ferrari California T, Pagani Huayra, Pagani Zonda, Koenigisegg CCX, Bugatti Veyron and many more.
The event was sponsored by Pommery who supplied 2,000 bottles of champagne and 5,000 lobsters were on the menu for the complimentary lunch. Boddles sponsored the Salon Privé Sale and provided a Patek Philipp watch with it’s proceeds going to charity and cars available included the ‘Stradale Collection‘ (which included an F40 and Miura and much more), a 1931 Bentley Blower, 1971 Ferrari 365 GTS/4, 1960 Ferrari 250 GT Pininfarina Series II Coupe and 1951 Cadillac Limousine which was ex-President Juan Domingo and Eva Peron’s.
