The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2016 took place May 20-22 on the verdant grounds of the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este and Villa Erba on Lake Como in Cernobbio, Italy. Set against the breathtaking backdrop of Lake Como, the 2016 Concorso Villa d’Este presented the chance to not only admire more than 50 historic cars, but also take in the myriad of sights off the show field.
The cars are organised in different categories and a panel of experts led by president Lorenzo Ramaciotti judges the cars to select the Best of Show prize, the BMW Group Trophy. The 2016 Villa d’Este Concours saw the 1954 Maserati A6 GCS Berlinetta Pinin Farina of Timm Bergold win Best of Show by Judges, while Antonius Meijer’s 1933 Lancia Astura Serie II by Castagna was awarded Coppa d’Oro Villa d’Este, the Best of Show by Public Referendum.
In addition to our 2016 Concorso Villa d’Este photo gallery, we also offer the following selection of “Behind the Scene” pictures that give a more complete understanding of the little details, intangibles and Lake Como beauty that make the Concours one of the premier events in the world. We split up pictures into two galleries. The first gallery starting below features our favorite images, while the second gallery can be found on the last page of the article and gives a comprehensive view of all the photographs.
