CORRIERE D'ELEGANZA XIIIConcorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2022
Dear Friend of the Concorso,
All of us can look back on a fantastic experience. Basking in the sunshine of wonderful summer weather, an exquisite and wonderfully diverse selection of blue-riband Historic Cars from all over the world kept us enthralled between 20th and 22nd May. The press reported on the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este all around the world – and on its radiant winners.
The charge was led by a Bugatti 57 S, bodied with discreet elegance by Vanvooren. Its owner, Andrew Pisker, received the trophies for “Trofeo BMW Group – Best of Show” from the hands of Helmut Käs, Head of BMW Group Classic and President of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, and Wilhelm Schmid, CEO of A. Lange & Söhne. The winner selected by the Jury received a unique, one-of-a-kind model of the 1815 CHRONOGRAPH in white gold, which A. Lange & Söhne created exclusively for the winner of the Best of Show. Meanwhile, Philip Sarofim was ecstatic about winning the traditional award of Coppa d’Oro conferred by Public Referendum, which he received for his Aston Martin Bulldog.
There was a great deal to celebrate during these days spent on the shores of Lake Como. A separate class was even dedicated to the anniversary of particularly athletic BMW sports cars. This class bore the apt title “50 Years of Mean Machinery”, spanning a lofty arc back to the forebears of the BMW M models. Yet, the future was also celebrated: BMW brought along the new i7 to the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. What more suitable framework could be imagined for staging the premiere of its groundbreaking innovative technologies and luxurious design.
Already today, we are looking forward to a new rendezvous from 19th to 21st May 2023. Before we report on the initial plans for next year’s celebration, we invite you to savour, once again, the many highlights from the weekend HERE. Indulge yourselves. It’s well worth it. Naturally, you can also revel in memories on our Instagram and Facebook channels.
With our very best wishes,
Your Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este Team
