Salon Privé 2011 - Classic and Super Car Showcase

Chubb Personal Insurance in the United Kingdom once again has sponsored the prestigious Salon Privé, the United Kingdom’s most exclusive classic car event.

Salon Privé, a classic and luxury car show, went off splendidly well from June 22-24, on the lawns of Syon House, the London ancestral home of the Duke of Northumberland.

During the event, Chubb was proud to showcase a 1953 C-Type Jaguar previously owned by racing legend Sir Stirling Moss.

The United Kingdom’s leading supercar and classic car event showcased some of the world's most valuable vintage autos and supercars, in total worth at least £100 million (close to $160 million). Leading brands, Aston Martin, Rolls Royce, Bugatti and Spyker, exhibited their latest models. Some 6,000 guests attended the three-day event, which Chubb now has sponsored for three consecutive years.

Chubb is the official and sole sponsor of Salon Privé’s Concours D’Elégance—the classic car competition, judged by the world’s leading classic car experts—at which Chubb’s Simon Mobey presented this year’s trophies. Chubb also hosted a lunch for the 100 owners of the exhibited classic cars.

In addition to the Jaguar, Chubb displayed five spectacular classic and super cars belonging to clients. The rare 1958 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa “Pontoon Fender,” was reputed to be the most valuable car at the event. Also displayed were a 1955 Porsche Speedster, a 1995 Ferrari F50, a 1955 Ferrari Monza “Ice Racer” and the 1939 Aston Atom.

Mobey reports that activities at the event generated a lot of interest among guests. Chubb had coordinated with other event sponsors to offer prize give-aways which included a “track day” with Jaguar, test driving its top-of-the-line cars. Also, Riva Boats also offered a weekend getaway to Italy, test driving one of its latest boats on an Italian lake.

Chubb Personal Insurance and Chubb Collector Car now turn their sights to the Pebble Beach Concours and events which begin the week of August 14th and conclude on the famous fairway on the 21st!
