|Autumn has now arrived in Cernobbio and all around Lake Como. This provides a very good reason to start looking forward to next year’s Summer season, and to the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2018.
The preparations for this unique event have already started.
The first vehicles have been nominated and the motto for this classic weekend on the shores of Lake Como has also been defined.
This year, it is “Hollywood on the Lake”.
You can look forward to eminently cinematic scenes. The protagonists will be classic automobiles and motorcycles in impeccable condition and with a fascinating history.
They will be presented to the public and the Jury in the very best limelight and sunlight. The vehicles will emulate the development of Hollywood movies from the period of silent films and the golden twenties, through the screen epics of the post-war era, to modern blockbusters.
The spectrum of vehicles competing in the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2018 will also be drawn from all the important epochs in the history of mobility.
In Y 2018, the competition for historic automobiles will once more encompass 8ht classes. And the entire bandwidth of automobile history will again be reflected in these categories, from pre-war racing cars and pre-war luxury saloons to sports cars in the post-war era.
Visitors to the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2018 will consequently be able to experience racing vehicles, luxury automobiles and sports cars from the pre-war era, alongside gran turismo automobiles and sports cars from the 1950’s to the 1980’s.
Vehicles such as a Ballot 3/8 LC from 1920 or the luxurious Isotta Faschini 8A from Y 1930 would be welcomed as candidates.
Classics like the 1961 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato would have excellent prospects for nomination in the field of competitors comprising exceptional post-war sports cars.
These vehicles tell stories of legendary triumphs on race tracks that have long since passed into the annals of history. They recall designers of genius and their pioneering inventions. Exciting design ideas and unique one-off specials for celebrity customers are still admired today.
This undoubtedly epitomizes the very special nature of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.
Nowhere else are the entrants in the field of competitors as exclusive as in the beauty competition for classic automobiles held on the shores of Lake Como.
The weekend from 25 to 27 May will also see the presentation of Superstars on 4 wheels in 3 special classes.
The category dedicated to the event theme of “Hollywood on the Lake” brings together automobile classics which have left a lasting impression not only on the road but also as rolling stars in a feature film on the big screen.
The “Formula 1” class brings together spectacular racing cars which maybe never met on the race track, though every one of them played a pivotal role in defining the premiere class of motor racing.
Another special class features exceptional vehicles boasting a particularly impressive state of preservation.
The Selecting Committee invites owners of Blue Ribbon classics to register themselves and their vehicles to take part in the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2018 and it looks forward to applications regardless of the class.
