WITH no finer backdrop than the magnificent Great Court of Blenheim Palace, this year’s spectacular Pirelli Prestige & Performance Competition is set to thrill supercar fans as they mingle with some of the greatest supercars of the last 40 years.
Acting as a centrepiece to the Salon Privé Supercar Show on Saturday September 3, the full line-up of entrants and judges has now been announced, with eight classes featuring in excess of 25 premium automotive brands. They include Aston Martin, Ferrari, Jaguar, McLaren, Mercedes-Benz and Pagani, as well as Lamborghini and Porsche, both of whom have special celebration classes.
Following its sensational debut in 2015 the Pirelli Prestige & Performance Competition, which is open to the public, will offer guests access to some of the most famous and significant supercars.
The modern-day twist on a Concours d’Elégance will see 10 of Sant’Agata’s finest line up in the Tribute to the Lamborghini Diablo category, which includes a 2000 6.0 VT Final Edition, a limited-edition SE30 and chassis number 001 SVR.
Competition supercar fans are also well catered for, with two Lancia 037s, two Ferrari 308 GTBs, an Audi Sport Quattro S1 E2 and 410bhp MG Metro 6R4 in The Best of Group B Rallying class.
Lining up alongside them in the Rival Supercars from the 80s & 90s category is a McLaren F1, Jaguar XJ 220, Lamborghini Countach and an Aston Martin V8 Vantage.
