The Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elegance
The prestigious Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance at Salon Privé has grown into a world-renowned affair, ranking among the top three alongside Pebble Beach and Villa d’Este.

In the morning, all cars and motorbikes are paraded through the landscaped grounds of Blenheim Palace and presented to the judges. The afternoon sees the Class Winners and Special Winners called to the podium to collect their awards, before the day culminates in the presentation of the ultimate prize of the Concours, the Best in Show.
With a range of coveted awards to be won, honouring everything from engineering greatness to stunning exteriors, the Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance is a true celebration of phenomenal vehicles and their heritage, style and elegance.
