An Hispano Suiza and other rarities at the Concorso d'Eleganza.
They definitely showed how classic cars & classic leather interiors are most certainly superior.
This year’s Concorso d'Eleganza proved to us how, when it comes to cars, the longer-lived, the better.
From a thousand submissions, the committee had to narrow it down to 50 entrants, and finally, only 10 were selected for the exclusive show as the rarest cars you wouldn’t typically see on the roads today.
That includes a Marc Newson‘s 1926 Hispano Suiza, dressed in an attractive dual-cowl coachwork with ageless red leather seats.
The designer spared no effort to transform this class A into an eccentric and nontraditional model.
Meet the other nine champions.
The elegant, athletic, and cosmopolitan BMW 507 (1930), as unforgettable as its caramel leather seats.
A literal one-of-a-kind: Post-second-world-war Isotta Fraschini 8C Monterosa (1948).
This Osca MT4 Siluro (1949) and its unique athletic torpedo body matching the steering wheel covered with suede.
An Alfa Romeo 1900 C Sprint Supergioiello (1953) restored as a family gem.
This Fiat 500 Abarth (1957) shows a passion for perfection.
The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Alloy (1959) can win any battle in terms of extravagance supremacy.
The Lancia Dilambda Serie I (1964) has a bespoke body styled by a London-based coachbuilder.
This Alpine M64 (1964) dedicated its life to endurance racing with its interior that also lasts a lifetime.
The Lamborghini Countach LP400S Prototype Walter Wolf Special (1978) needs no introduction, just look at the seats.
The jury made sure to award different prizes to the vehicles whose years of manufacture covered the period from 1920 to 1990 — all impressively designed and preserved, thanks to the choice of timeless and natural materials.
The winner of Best of Show was a 1956 Ferrari 250 GT TDF, making 2021 the 7th consecutive year that the main prize of the exclusive competition for cars in Italy was awarded to a car produced by an Italian brand.
For us, every one of them deserves a trophy.
