2013 Salon Prive: Supercars, hypercars, classics to set ablaze London's garden party
Salon Prive 2013 will take place from September 4-6, featuring hundreds of supercars, hypercars, concepts and classics. This year marks the eighth annual running of the event, which organisers say will be the largest yet.
The event will have its grand opening with the 2013 Chubb Insurance Tour d'Elégance along with the Audemars Piguet Super Car Show.
The 48-km tour will commence from the Royal Automobile Club Woodcote Park in Epsom on September 3 with a stunning collection of 50 cars, worth over £22 million (Rs 224 crore). The cars will travel from the Concours to Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge, whereupon every machine will do a lap of the circuit.
Spyker B6 Venator
The cavalcade will then move to Brooklands Museum, before making the last leg of their journey to Salon Privé at Syon Park.
In addition, the show features dozens of supercars, including over 10 car debuts including the Spyker B6 Venator making its European debut.

The two-door mid-engined convertible is due to go on sale in 2014, and will be powered by a V6 engine producing more than 375PS. It is a sister car to the Venator coupe seen at the Geneva motor show this year. Production versions of both cars are set to cost around £95,000 (Rs 96.71 lakh).
