Le jury

The Authenticity and Elegance jury

The Concours d'Elegance Suisse pays tribute to the style, mechanics and very function of the automobile.  Thus the appreciation made by the jury goes beyond aesthetics must take into account the function of the car: that of being driven.  This assessment will be taken into account by the Jury so as not to penalize owners who continue to drive their cars.     Indeed, the "Competition condition", often considered as a selection criterion, should not refer to the state of cleanliness or the perfection of the restoration of an automobile. It is the intrinsic qualities of the automobile that will be retained, especially in consideration of the age and normal use that should be made of these automobiles.  Therefore, the Competition appeal to a Jury of Authenticity, which will judge the cars according to strict criteria of appreciation considering the respect of the authenticity and the history of the car presented.  This position aims to encourage near-original preservation, whether automobiles have been restored or not.  


The Jury of Elegance, for its part, will have to judge the beauty of the line of the bodies, their influence in the history of the Automobile and finally the elegance of the competing crews.


These two juries will work together, under the aegis of the President of the Jury and the President of the Competition, to award the class winner prizes to the most authentic and spectacular automobiles. of the Competition will be given to one of the cars having won its class.  The Grand Prix du Son will be given to the car with the best sound.
