Glorious sunshine greeted automotive enthusiasts from around the world who gathered for last weekend’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. It was the 12th staging of the event under the patronage of the BMW Group. “Once again the Concorso has borne impressive testimony that cars have lost none of their fascination,” commented Karl Baumer, President of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este and Director of BMW Group Classic. Dott. Jean-Marc Droulers, President of Villa d’Este S.p.A., looked back on two extraordinary days: “The Concorso is ruled by a constellation that could hardly be bettered: heritage, elegance and a passion for cars create the perfect foundation for a weekend such as we have been privileged to experience once again.”

In addition to the classic car contests and the competition featuring concept models of the future, highlights of this year’s Concorso included the “100 Years of Alfa Romeo” special exhibition and the world premiere of the BMW 328 Kamm Coupé. Sunday’s event was a sell-out with more than 5,000 visitors attending.
