Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este is a renowned elegance competition for classic and vintage cars. It has taken place every year since 1929 during the last weekend of April in Villa d'Este on the shores of Lake Como, Italy. BMW Group has organised the Concorso, jointly with the Grand Hotel Villa d'Este, for the last ten years.[1][2][3][4]

Visitors can admire about fifty cars, all built between the 1920s and the 1970s, organized in different categories.

Car makers also take advantage of the event to showcase some of their upcoming models: a working Aston Martin One-77 was officially unveiled to the press during the event.[5]
