The 85th edition of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este was held in Cernobbio last weekend. It was the third time that A. Lange & Söhne took the stage as sponsor of this traditional competition. All the weekend was about celebrating the motorcar as design icon and art object. There were 51 entrants to the concorso, all very rare and exclusive cars from 1908 to 1972.
In the end a Maserati 450S dating from 1956 with an 8 cylinders, 4477 cc engine won the concorso.
Here is the car Saturday afternoon just before driving up the little street to the jury.
On this picture you see from left to right: Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid, the lucky owner of the Maserati 450S and winner of the this year edition of the Concorso d´Eleganza Villa d´Este Albert Spiess, his wife and Ulrich Knieps in charge of BMW Classic at BMW.
