From 5 to 8 of August, our team were at Blenheim Palace for this year’s Salon Privé. The event is a luxurious garden party-style exhibition of the finest collection of supercars, hypercars and classic cars.
This year, team members from Porsche Centre Silverstone were invited to exhibit key models from the Porsche range. The display included a 911 Carrera 4S, a Panamera 4S and a 718 Cayman GTS. Along with the display models, Porsche also provided a rare 911 Speedster to take part in the Supercar Parade and Salon Privé Live – a drive out from Blenheim Palace to Woodstock where cars were showcased along with a live music performance.
Porsche Centre Silverstone’s Sarah Garston-Lewis was the Speedster’s resident driver for most of the weekend, including the Future Classics Class on the Thursday afternoon. Following the event, Sarah commented: “It was an absolute pleasure to represent the brand and to be given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to drive such an iconic car. I’ll never forget the experience!”
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
