On these hallowed days, over 50 individually curated automobile rarities will come together once more at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. The collection of Historic Cars provides unique insights into the history of design, engineering and motor sport.

Their carefully curated characterisations pave the way towards unique constellations of exquisite Historic Cars.
Today, we are already in a position to give you an initial overview of the sheer diversity of the themes underpinning the collection of vehicles participating in the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2023.
