The 8th edition of the Concours d'Elegance, celebrating "100 years of Style, Design and Innovation", offers you a vast choice of classes for cars from 1920 to 1990!  As every year, our selection committee will take care of including your car in the appropriate class. This year, the Design Pavilion will pay tribute to the genius of Master Flaminio Bertoni with several displays dedicated to his four masterpieces at Citroën: the Traction, the 2CV, the DS and the Ami 6.  

 

The list of classes is available here: Official Classes.

In addition to the class prizes awarded to the winners and runners-up, the Concours will also nominate a number of Exceptional Awards: the Antoine Prunet Trophy, the Best Preservation Award, the Spirit of Preservation Award, the Best Restoration Award, the Crew Elegance Award, the President's Trophy, Women in Style Award, the Innovation Award and the Club Award (list subject to change).

The awards ceremony will close with the presentation of two Best of Show Awards:  The Best of Show and the Best of Sound.

The Jury

Authenticity & 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 "Concours condition", often considered as a selection criteria, 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, we have appointed on one side 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.  

 

On the other hand, the Jury of Elegance, 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 Concours, to award the class winner prizes to the most authentic and spectacular automobiles of the Competition.  The prestigious Best of Show will be given to one of the cars having won its class.  The Best in Sound will be given to the car with the best engine melody.
