Exclusive classic and vintage car show surrounded by the beauty of Lake Como
From Friday, 26th May to Sunday, 28th May 2017, the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este and Villa Erba will be the exclusive and unique setting of this famed event, where guests are welcomed to admire the finest historic vehicles and motorcycles of their eras.
As one of the oldest and most popular of all current annual concours events, the 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este also signifies the official start of the classic car season that will culminate with Monterey Motoring Week and the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August.
The motto for this years Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este is “Around the World in 80 Days—Voyage through an Era of Records”. The event will feature an astounding assortment of automotive treasures—cars from the 1920s and 30s to include pre-war luxury cars.
Among the eight automotive concours classes for which prizes will be awarded, 51 cars have been painstakingly selected, and they will be shipped from 16 different countries. They represent 30 different marques, 12 of which are Italian. And even though Ferrari will be the most represented marque in this year’s competition with seven models, more cars have been shipped to Italy from owners in the US (12) than from any other country, underlining the truly international pull of this event.
This year’s show will also include the RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba sale, a biennial auction with a reputation for readjusting classic car prices and one where 15 of the 45 cars set to go under the hammer are expected to do so for more than €1 million.
