The iconic grounds of Blenheim Palace will be brimming over with 130 classic and contemporary supercars on Sunday 6th May as Supercars At The Palace roars into action. This hotly-anticipated event is the warm-up act for the 2nd edition of Blenheim Palace Classic & Supercar to be staged on 2nd September. Car lovers can expect to see globally-renowned marques and boutique manufacturers in four distinct categories.
Each Display Will Comprise 30 Cars:
1.) “Best of British” arena - including four McLaren 720S hypercars and ten Aston Martins ranging from a 1968 DB6 Volante to the latest Vantage V12 AMR.
2.) Italian exotica will also feature prominently with “Forza Italia” featuring a raft of Maranello classics, from a 1970 Ferrari 365GTC/4 to the latest 2018 488 Spider, with Sant’Agata also represented via such rarities as a 1977 Lamborghini Silhouette.
3.) Germany will also be making its presence felt, with the “Porsche Performance” class celebrating 70 years of this much-loved sportscar marque. The timeline of icons ranging from the beautiful 356 to the latest awe-inspiring 991.2 GT3 is not to be missed.
4.) Audi and BMW, meanwhile, will star in “Best of the Rest” thanks to such thoroughbreds as the V10 Plus and i8 respectively. They will be joined by muscle-bound American performance cars including the Ford GT 720 Mirage and the Mustang GT500.
