Stunning Alfa concept car takes top spot at Salon Prive concours

Published 04 September 2017

A 1960s Alfa Romeo was voted best in show at last week’s Concours d’Elégance. The US-based 1960 6C 3000 CM Pininfarina Superflow IV had never been shown in the UK before and won over the judges at the prestigious Blenheim Palace event on Thursday, 31 August.

Now in its 12th year, Salon Privé continues to attract some of the most important collector cars in the world, including a one-of-37 ‘covered headlamp’ 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spider. Restored in the UK during 2012, this SWB-variant California Spider was a best in show runner-up and won its class.

Other winners of Italian descent include the last-ever UK-delivered, right-hand-drive 1973 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 ‘Daytona’ Spider, one of 122 that originally left the Maranello factory in that specification. Remaining with its current owner for over 30 years, it took home the people’s choice award.

Joining the Ferrari was a 1967 Lamborghini Miura P400. Having returned from Italy and Lamborghini’s in-house restoration team, Polo Storico, in July, it took home top honours in the evolution of the supercar pin-ups class.
