Concorso D’Eleganza Villa D’Este is a VIP annual event in Italy that draws millionaires and billionaires to see some of the world’s rarest and most valuable historic cars. The Concorso d’Eleganza, is hosted every year by grand hotel, Villa d’Este on the shores of Lake Como.
Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este is one of the top annual classic events for classic and vintage cars in Italy, Europe.
It takes place in the second half of May, near the Villa d’Este hotel in Cernobbio, on the western shore of Lake Como.
Visitors can see about fifty cars, built between the 1920s and the 1970s. Also, car makers take advantage of the event to showcase some of their upcoming models. The event has been organized by BMW Group and the Villa d’Este hotel for the last ten years. The Selecting Committee will choose the most exceptional automotive masterpieces before they are judged by the panel of Jury members.
The focus on preservation, design, originality, and the spirit of nobility bring together the most important and beautiful cars from all over the world. The cars are organized in different categories and an exclusive panel of experts judges the cars to select the Best of Show prize, the BMW Group Trophy.
This trophy is reserved for an extraordinary automobile. The Coppa d’Oro Villa d’Este is the most traditional prize of the Concorso and the award is decided by a public vote at the Villa d’Este.
A prize awarded to the contemporary Concept Car was introduced in 2002 and this prize has been a regular feature of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este since then. The trophy creates a link between the glorious past and the exciting future of the automobile.
The spectacular success of the Concorso has been largely empowered by the partnership of the BMW Group as the organiser of this event since 2005. This competition also goes back to roots of the Concorso when designers and automobile companies presented their latest automobiles to the public. About 10 to 12 Concept Cars & Prototypes are showcased here. Some of them make their world debut during their days at Lake Como and the winner of the award is elected by public vote at the Villa Erba on Sunday.
This event is a remarkable experience because of the atmosphere, the gardens of Villa d’Este and the view of Lake Como.
