Congratulations to the winners of the Churchill Cup

(for Most Exceptional Design) and Best in Class in the Low-Slung Sports class award at the 2021 Salon Prive with their 1972 De Tomaso Mangusta. The Salon Prive is the Uk’s most exclusive Motor Show and to win not 1 but 2 awards without even dropping a single point is exeptional. Chief Judge of the Churchill Cup judging panel and legendary racer, Derek Bell shared, “Our mission was to look at the aesthetics of a car from a designer’s point of view. We looked at every car here, and it was incredibly difficult. We eventually selected our top three and then held a vote. The Mangusta had a simple elegance about it, and when it drove up onto the stage, we knew that we’d made the right choice.” “It has such beauty and real impact, and it’s a very pure design. There’s a totality to it – the whole picture ties together perfectly,” added Former Aston Martin and Jaguar designer Ian Callum. The Mangusta also got the Low-Slung Sports class award. We know for sure that this stunning car will not have overheated on the way to or from the event – wink, wink!
