For classic car enthusiasts Concorsod'Eleganza Villa d'Este on Lake Como

Also this year lovers of historic vehicles from all over the world meet for the Concorsod'Eleganza Villa d'Este. The world's most exclusive event for classic cars on four and two wheels is the classic car highlight of the year.

The Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este is always a spectacular event with its presentation of rare historic automobiles against the backdrop of Lake Como in Cernobbio. The October 2021 edition of the world’s most prestigious event for historic vehicles was particularly exclusive, because after an unintentionally long break, all participants were finally able to experience the invigorating energy and joy that only comes when you actually meet can.

The Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este: A festival of the most beautiful and fastest of their time.

This year, around 50 classic automobiles with a special history will compete for victory in their class as well as for the traditional Coppa d'Oro Villa d'Este and the coveted Trofeo BMW Group for the "Best of Show". As early as 1929, particularly beautiful and elegant automobiles were presented for the first time as part of a competition on the grounds of the Grand Hotel Villa d'Este. The tradition of the venue goes back even further.

The iconic Grand Hotel Villa d'Este on Lake Como was built as a cardinal's palace in the 16th century. Since 1873, the imposing property, decorated with numerous works of art and located in the middle of a magnificent park, has served as a luxury hotel for particularly discerning guests from all over the world.

In 2022, the Grand Hotel Villa d'Este will be entering its 150th season. The Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este is celebrating this special anniversary with its own vehicle class.

Under the motto "And The Winner Is...: A Celebration of Villa d'Este's 150th Season", vehicles will be presented that have won the Coppa d'Oro Villa d'Este or the trophy for the "Best of Show" have gone down in the history of the competition since it was first held in 1929.

Another anniversary will be honored with a special look at the Ferrari brand at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este 2022. The Italian carmaker is 75 years old. The marque's extraordinary history comes to life with its own competition category: "The Cavallino at 75: Eight Decades of Ferrari Represented in Eight Icons". Each vehicle will thus represent the visions of a decade and the corresponding technological excellence. For the first time, special models from the recent past that bear the legendary “Cavallino rampante” brand logo are also to be exhibited.

But not only the most beautiful and rarest classics, also the most exciting current concept cars and prototypes compete in the beauty contests of the Concorsod'EleganzaVilla d'Este. A unique opportunity for visitors to take a look at the automotive future. Perhaps there is already a classic of tomorrow in the exhibition area.
