foreword Chubb Insurance is delighted to once again support Salon Privé for the sixth year as the Concours d’Elégance sponsor. Salon Privé is, without question, one of the most exclusive occasions in the motoring calendar and, as a leading insurer of the oldest classics to the rarest supercars, it is the perfect event for us to sponsor. We know that all cars are not created equal – and neither are Concours events. Salon Privé is a quintessentially English affair with a stunning setting, glorious vehicles and wonderful hospitality - all offered to you and your guests. Whether you be an avid collector of classics, drive a supercar or just simply admire these beautiful machines, there will be something for everyone at the 2014 Salon Privé. What could be more pleasurable than savouring the elegance of a classic Ferrari, whilst sipping Pommery champagne? Over the past years, we have been delighted that many Chubb clients have entered the Concours competition (several with great success) and we’ll be encouraging more to enter in 2014. As always, the Salon Privé team will ensure that entering a car or bike into the event will be effortless. Salon Privé will give you and your guests an exceptional experience, so we do hope that you’ll join us for a most memorable day. Simon Mobe y European Personal Insurance Manager



welcome Now uttered in the same breath as Villa d’Este and Pebble Beach, The Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance at Salon Privé is the most established, prestigious and significant of all true Concours events in the UK. Every September, our three day spectacular attracts collectors, owners and enthusiasts from all over the world to marvel at the vehicles we are so proud to display. It is a serious competition prompting our entrants to fully prepare and authenticate their historic vehicles in readiness for entry. Only after our selection committee has ratified the history and information provided are vehicles accepted. On the day of judging, a comprehensive points system operates to score vehicles correctly, not only on their elegance and style, but also on their originality, authenticity and heritage. As the judges themselves are all internationally renowned automotive professionals, historians or journalists, their specific knowledge of key marques and experience in judging qualifies them enough; of course, they also bring boundless enthusiasm when adjudicating over the priceless array of rare motor vehicles. With daily classic car parades, impeccable hospitality, an enthusiastic crowd and an overall feeling of elegance, style and authenticity, Salon Privé is far more than a motor show and Concours d’Elégance. We are a wonderful social occasion to strengthen and forge friendships amongst the finest machines on the planet; a garden party to rival the very best.
