Villa D'Este 2017: PH Gallery


It's almost that time of year again; a long summer of car shows of all shapes and sizes is starting to get underway, and we can't wait! This weekend it's one of the highlights of the automotive calendar, and probably one of the classiest car events on the planet. The Concorso D'Eleganza at Villa D'Este and Villa Erba is the ultimate combination of beautiful, rare, valuable, historic (or futuristic) cars in the most breathtaking surroundings on the shores of Lake Como.

The event, which has been running since 1929, returns this weekend, and we cannot wait to bring you our highlights later in the month. Notably the unique Ferrari SP38 based on the Ferrari 488 promises to be handed over at the show, as well as eight fittingly named concours classes. 'The Titans: Dirt, Dust and Danger'; 'From Manhattan to Mayfair: The Golden Age of Motoring Opulence'; 'Shaped by the Wind: Grandes Routières of the Art Deco Era'; 'New World, New Ideas: The Story of the GT'; 'Speed Meets Style: The Flowering of the Sports and the Racing Car'; '80 Years of Automotive Archaeology; Hollywood On The Lake: Stars of the Silver Screen'; and 'When Sex Was Safe and Racing Was Dangerous: Formula One'. Hopefully they're all quite self-explanatory.

Unfortunately, the weekend isn't here yet! Until then you will have to make do with some of our favourite cars from the 2017 show. We won't say too much on each car, as we really couldn't do them all justice in one story - some of these could have whole series of books written about them! Enjoy the gallery.
