Salon Privé announces an all-new and exclusive ‘Hypercar Lawn’ for 2013
This year’s Salon Privé will be its eighth year and takes place from the 4th to 6th of September at West London’s Syon Park and is firmly established as one of the UK’s most prestigious Luxury Super Car Show & Concours d’Elégance.
This year a new addition to the show will be a stunning and unrivalled (in the UK) collection of hypercars.
The first manufacturers to sign up to this new collection with their hyper cars include Pagani, Koenigsegg, McLaren and Exagon Motors.
This lawn, in addition to the Concepts and Prototypes collection and 70 other sports, luxury and super cars on the front lawn, the 100 Concours entries on the back lawn, together with the luxury brands village, RCA design exhibition, and Art and Memorabilia Fair elevate Salon Privé to the premier exclusive automotive show in the British calendar, rivalling the best Concours and Super Car gatherings of the world.
Limited to a maximum of six models per year in the collection, this year’s current Hypercar entries are as follows:
Pagani’s latest and stunning offering weighs in with 720bhp and 740 lb ft of torque from a 6-litre V12 Mercedes AMG-derived engine, powering the Huayra to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds. Its top speed is 230mph and the price is around £850,000.00. Current holder of the title ‘Top Gear Hypercar of the Year’.
Sweden’s finest and a previous production car world land speed record holder, the carbon-fibre Koenigsegg is developed entirely in-house, and comes with a price tag of over £1million. The Agera R boasts a top speed of 26omph, and reaches the first 62 mph in just 3.1 seconds, thanks to its 5-litre twin-turbo charged V8 engine developing 940 horsepower with 810 lb ft of torque.
