Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2019Corriere d’Eleganza II

Dear Friend of Concorso,

The world-famous parade of the Concorso d’Eleganza held in the parkland of the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este annually epitomises one of the magic moments of automobile culture. This event is always an unforgettable experience for passionate fans and connoisseurs of the most aristocratic motor-cars. We are taking our cue from this spectacle and will be celebrating in style. Accordingly, we have created the “Villa d’Este Prelude Tour” as another blue-riband opportunity at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2019 for admiring the fascinating automobiles “in the wild”. The peregrination is an ambitious outing for those distinguished cars that will appear at the Concorso d’Eleganza.

This exclusive scenic tour will form an initial pinnacle for the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este as a prelude to the grandiose event. The tour will start off from the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este in the morning of Thursday 23rd May 2019. The route will pass along the banks of Lake Como and then take to the hilly districts surrounding the lake. The world’s most spectacular automobiles will go out on a spin for the first time along these public roads. One of Italy’s most breath-taking landscapes will form a perfect backdrop for this inaugural experience. With the Villa d’Este Prelude Tour, BMW Group Classic will be showcasing its many years of expertise in developing and implementing concepts for bespoke driving events.

Two days later – on Saturday 25th May 2019 – the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este will be staged once again. The customary parade is naturally a spectacle anticipated with adulation by the plethora of enthusiasts. Would you like to experience live the “family atmosphere” of what is undoubtedly the most noble and luxurious event for classic cars as an honoured guest with a grandstand seat? The “Friend of the Concorso” package gives you entry to this sophisticated world of the sublime – especially since it includes three nights of accommodation for two people at the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este. This package is only available in limited numbers. And bear in mind: Christmas is coming…

In the last edition of Corriere d’Eleganza, we promised to announce more classes as soon as they became established. And voilà, here they are. We are delighted to announce the fourth class of Historic Cars for the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2019:

Speeding against the Clock: Endurance Racing Legends

Meanwhile, the Concorso di Motociclette 2019 will once again be held in the parkland of neighbouring Villa Erba and we are now able to announce two more classes for this event:

Sound and Style: The New Motorcycles of 1929
Still in Action: Motorcycles More than 100 Years Old

As usual, you will find all other information on the website

The booking form for the “Friend of the Concorso” package is available there – and naturally an e-mail link that takes you directly to us so that we can answer any other questions you may have.
