VIEW SLIDESHOW

Each year the world’s elite gather on the shores of Italy’s Lake Como for the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, a private, invitation-only Concorso that showcases a rare ensemble of impeccably preserved and restored classics. (This year’s event took place from May 22 to 24.) Sponsored by BMW Group Classic, the 2015 Concorso celebrated automobiles of all eras, which competed across several cleverly named classes. The day following the Concorso, the cars moved down the street to Villa Erba, where the public took the opportunity to gaze upon the vehicles. Here are a few standouts from the exclusive event’s most recent edition. (concorsodeleganzavilladeste.com)
