Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2021Corriere d’Eleganza IX
Dear Friends of the Concorso,
Dear Friends of the Concorso, While you are reading these lines, the first four-wheeled stars of the upcoming Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este will already have arrived in Cernobbio. The garage of the Grand Hotel will quickly fill up with the rare treasures while the owners and their teams prepare the cars for an exceptional weekend on the shores of Lake Como. A carefully curated field of outstanding automobiles awaits us, often with substantial and interesting histories. The cars are presented in eight different classes in the competition for the trophies and awards that are coveted throughout the world. Once again, the visionary Concept Cars will form a dedicated category in the competition at the 2021 edition.
Last year, the pandemic meant that the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este had to take a break and we are well aware of the huge heartache this involved. We greatly missed this diversity of automobile elegance and technical refinements from many decades, and we regretted having to forego the opportunity of discovering all those amazing details. It was also a great loss not to have been able to engage in all the many enriching conversations with fellow enthusiasts and share the joy at experiencing all of this at one of the most enchanting places in the world.
The weekend from 1st to 3rd October 2021 is now almost upon us. In accordance with our long-established magnificent tradition, we will open the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on Friday evening. Alongside two parades on Saturday and Sunday held in the park of the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este, there are a number of other highlights on the programme. They include a currently still secret model in a dedicated Closed Room awaiting its first discovery. Rolls-Royce will provide a wonderful surprise in the legendary Mosaic Garden in the form of a unique bespoke motor car produced by means of sophisticated artisan craftwork.
There is now the prospect of enjoying some exciting and special days ahead of us. We are very much looking forward to the privilege of writing another chapter in the marvellous heritage story of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. If you are not able to be at the venue, we invite you to follow the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on Instagram and Facebook at any time. In addition, you can follow the parade from 14.00 on Saturday by going to the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este Website. We send you our warmest greetings from Cernobbio,
Your Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este Team
