The 2016 Salon Privé is now open with hundreds of exotic sports, super and classic cars on show at Oxfordshire's picturesque Blenheim Palace.

This year's show brings another eclectic mix of cars, with everything from the first European customer Koenigsegg Agera RS, to the classicly shaped Bristol Bullet and futuristic Rimac Concept_One electric hypercar in attendance.

Autocar is on hand at Blenheim Palace to bring you closer to the three-day-long show. You can see some of our show highlights in the gallery above.

The Salon Privé Sale 2016

An unregistered Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster will head a list of 68 cars due to go under the hammer at this weekend’s auction at the Salon Privé.

The open-top V12 supercar has just 37 miles on the clock and is expected to fetch up to £520,000 at the Saturday auction, making it top candidate for biggest sale at the Silverstone Auctions event.

Also on offer will be selection of modern classics, including a 1987 Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth. The 224bhp three-door has covered 50,943 miles through its four owners and it’s predicted to sell for between £45,000 and £55,000.

Alongside this, experts think a 1989 ‘flat-nose’ 930 Porsche 911 Turbo SE could sell for as much as £160,000, while a 1990 Mercedes 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II could go for £220,000.

The 68 cars will go under the hammer during the closing day of Salon Privé.

Our Verdict

Lamborghini Aventador Superveloce

Make no mistake, this lighter, harder Superveloce is finally the car the Aventador was always meant to be
