World’s most luxurious automobile contest

Posted on: July 8th, 2013 by Mr Roaming 12 Comments

The world’s most luxurious automobile event took place on the shores of beautiful Lake Como. The focus on design, originality, perfect preservation and the spirit of nobility bring together the most important and beautiful cars from all over the world year by year in Cernobbio – reflecting the true historical value of the automobile.


The Grand Hotel Villa d’Este is one of the world’s leading hotels and the grounds on the shores of Lake Como offer guests and visitors the opportunity to admire some 50 historic cars built between the 1920s and the 1980s. If you are an aficionado of  vintage cars like me, you are really going to enjoy this series of all time classic driving machines featured in Forbes Magazine, from the Best of Show winner Ralph Lauren with his Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic Coupé to the Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale concept car from 2011. Enjoy the show.

    Despite the new car craze in this country (that being the US), there is simply no substitute for an amazing vintage vehicle like the ones you show above. What a spectacular reminder that things just had a little more class in the old days.
