The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este enjoys a long-standing reputation as one of the most sophisticated and exclusive events in the classic car segment.
Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2020 postponed to October 2020. The team continues to monitor the development of the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) and expect a final confirmation this June.
In light of current events and growing measures to contain the coronavirus, the Organisation Team of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este has decided not to proceed with this year’s edition on the planned dates (22nd to 24th May, 2020). Instead, the organizers plan to hold the luxury automotive event from October 16th to 18th, 2020.
“Our aim is to always meet this aspiration. However, current circumstances make it impossible for us to guarantee the calibre of event that you have come to expect this coming May. Our early cancellation for May will hopefully make planning easier for our many overseas guests, knowing they have longer lead times for logistics, travel arrangements, etc. ” said the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este team.
The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este owes its privileged status among the world’s most prestigious heritage events for historic vehicles to a number of unique attributes. These include the elegance of the event, its long and illustrious tradition, the unrivalled flair experienced at the majestic Grand Hotel Villa d’Este on the shores of Lake Como and the small, select groups of participants.
The Grand Hotel Villa d’Este is one of the world’s most iconic hotels.
In 2020, the field of participants will again be presented in eight special classes. The Selecting Committee presents the first four classes of the Historic Cars for the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2020: Hypercars of the 1990s; Pre-war Roadsters; Cops and Robbers: Fast cars from both sides of the Law; From Swinging Sixties to Awesome Eighties: Two Decades of Endurance Racing.
And let’s not forget the Concorso di Motociclette, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2020. Across the world, there is virtually no other opportunity to experience rare two-wheelers of this quality at a single venue. The motorcycles tell their own stories and symbolise the lifeblood of their owners, who have invested so much care in these eye witnesses to the development of motorised transport.
In 2020, the beauty contest for Historic Motorcycles in the grounds of Villa Erba will once more include six motorcycle classes. The Selecting Committee presents the following classes for the Concorso di Motociclette 2020: More Wheels: Early Attempts for a Passenger Ride; Boxers of the Early 1920s; American Greats; Styling the 1950s; The Motorcycle Work of Lino Tonti (1920 – 2002); Concept Bikes: New Design and Prototypes by Manufacturers and Independents.
