HERE COMES THE SUNConcorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2023


Côte d’Azur, Corniche, Cernobbio – naturally, not all the dream locations for a drive with the Cabriolet need to begin with a “C”.

Yet glamour, a breath-takingly beautiful landscape and the first warm rays of sunshine as spring comes alive are undoubtedly a particularly good fit with this self-confident, open style of coachwork.

It goes without saying that the “Lifestyle Cabriolet” needs to be part of the action at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2023, as a contest of the most exclusive, most elegant and most extravagant automobiles. And so CLASS H brings together some exceptional Cabriolets with boundless panoramic views under the title HERE COMES THE SUN: “TOPLESS” DONE DIFFERENTLY!

The Cabriolets presented in this class reprise the life-affirming cruising culture back in the 1950s and 1960s with historic models drawn from the period between 1954 and 1986.

Additional defining cues from the 1970s and 1980s already highlight the changing spirit of the times, pointing towards higher speeds and associated particularly extravagant studies.

Irrespective of the era, the fascination of the Cabriolet exudes freedom, the sense of libertine laissez-faire and the associated eternal dream of Sun, Summer and South.

The positive underlying feeling of this cool form of conveyance lent its name to the vehicle coachwork: the word “cabrioler” in French means to caper or cavort.

A host of film stars contributed to this very special flair – not least Alain Delon, Anita Ekberg and James Dean – when they transformed some exquisite Cabriolets into the most famous automobiles in the history of the silver screen. Right up to the present day, hair flowing in the slipstream represents a lifestyle of frivolity and pleasure. The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este surrenders to this luxurious openness with Class H epitomising beauty and elegance to reflect the grandiose majesty of the contest’s timeless venue.
