My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Bringing the splendor of Sant’Agata Bolognese to Oxfordshire, Lamborghini celebrates past and present at this year’s Salon Privé, with activities including concours entries, a debut and supercar test-drives.
With cars to admire, marvel at, and even test drive, there’s something for all Lamborghini fans, and Salon Privé is delighted to announce the full Lamborghini event plan for its amazing event from the 1st to 3rd September.
Salon Privé and Lamborghini PoloStorico, the marque’s heritage division, will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Lamborghini Miura, universally regarded as the first-ever supercar. With its own class in the prestigious Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance, 50 Years of the Lamborghini Miura will see over ten of the world’s best examples entered into the Miura-only category, with two examples making their way from the USA in order to compete.
As part of the celebrations, the PoloStorico division will display the iconic one-of-one Lamborghini Miura Roadster, which will take pride of place on the lawns of Blenheim Palace.
Also on display as part of the 50 Years of the Lamborghini Miura class celebrations is the original Miura SV shown at Geneva Motor Show in 1971. It will be showcased at Salon Privé following its recent comprehensive restoration by Lamborghini PoloStorico. The unique pre-production model was originally built with parts of the Miura S, but incorporated pioneering features that would be seen on later SVs.
Not to be outdone, the Pirelli-backed Prestige & Performance Competition on Saturday 3rd has its own Diablo-only class, The Diablo Tribute, where a 2000 6.0 VT Final Edition will battle it out in the modern-day concours against nine other entrants, including chassis number 001 SVR, the first of just 31 racing versions produced, a limited-edition SE30 30th anniversary model and also a VT Roadster.
Throughout the event, Lamborghini’s official Birmingham dealership will manage guests’ test drives in the rear-wheel drive Lamborghini Huracán and its four-wheel drive equivalent, as well as the Spyder version. The 15-mile test-drive opportunity is part of Salon Privé’s ‘see it, test it, drive it’ experience. Salon Privé is the only event of its type that allows its guests to drive cars on the public road in the UK.
For media wishing to attend this year’s event, media accreditation is now open and press can apply via theonline booking form by providing their credentials and preferred attendance date. Media invites are limited, so interested parties are advised to apply as soon as possible.
