Every year the Salon Prive concours d’elegance brings some of the world’s most glamorous cars together at Blenheim Palace for the great, the good and the motoring press to admire. This year we sent Jim McGill along to explore the exotica and come up with some of his favourites ranging from wild modern supercars to restored classics and motorsport homages.
1. Touring Superleggera Aero 3
Inspired by the 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B LM Coupé Berlinetta Aerodinamica this thoroughly modern Ferrari-based machine looks stunning and packs a 740bhp V12 under its long bonnet

2. Zenvo TSR-S
The Zenvo TSR-S is a street-legal race car with active aero. The Danish firm will only build five a year, price at €1.4 million but for that you get a 1,110bhp twin-turbo V8 capable of 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds and 0-124mph in 6.8.

3. Bentley Mulliner Bacalar
Just 12 of these hand-build beauties will be made, and they're all sold already. Still, those lucky 12 will get a stunning open-top two-seater with carbon fibre panels, 5,000-year-old wood veneer and a 650bhp bi-turbo W12
4. 1929 Bentley Blower
Bentley's own example of one of its most famous race cars has just undergone a 12-month restoration to bring it back to its former glory. The 4.5-litre former Le Mans racer put everything else on the Bentley stand in the shade
