Divine DS concept, Zagato and McLaren unveil new cars at the first Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille

The first Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille was held on Sunday 7th September;
DS, Zagato and McLaren unveil new cars in Chantilly.

The first Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille organized by Peter Auto celebrated the return to French soil of the Concours d’Elégance. On the programme was a parade of 10 concept cars from manufacturers accompanied by models dressed by the same number of haute couture houses.

Three world premières took place: the Aston Martin Zagato, the DS Divine and the Peugeot Exalt. There was also a European première the McLaren P1 GTR. The Concours d’Etat brought together some 100 exceptional cars from the greatest collections from all over the world divided up into ten classes. Finally, there was a third concours – the Clubs Grand Prix – which welcomed almost 500 cars and rewarded the best setting by a club in the context of the Déjeuner sur l’Herbe.

Almost 10 000 spectators attended the first running of the Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille, which has immediately become part of that very elite circle of the most outstanding events of its type. Numerous workshops celebrating the French Art de Vivre and Savoir Faire were also very popular as were the various forms of entertainment for the general public.

“We’re very happy with the first event. Major collectors from all over the world were here today. We were awaiting their reaction with impatience. This evening they’re absolutely delighted and that includes the regulars at the main yardstick concours d’élégance. Thanks to the exceptional setting provided by the Chantilly Château our event has different advantages. We now know that we can count on word of mouth to expand it for the second running which will take place next year at the same date. Today, some 10 000 spectators came to Chantilly included those who already follow us at the circuits. We also saw that there was considerable interest among people who don’t usually bother attending this type of event. Of course, there are details in the first one that we’ll improve, and the second concours will be all the better for it,” said Patrick Peter, organiser of the first Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille.
