BMW’s participation at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este has been pure Zagato-flavoured up until now, so it was time to change the record. And…
There are places and events which remain in the collective imaginary for eternity: La Tour Eiffel; the Northern Lights; il Colosseo; Cirque du Soleil; Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival; Wimbledon. Some are better known in certain circles, like motorsport and automotive shows: Goodwood Festival of Speed (UK); Villa d’Este (Italy); the Monterey weekend (California).
BMW remain tight-lipped about their latest collaboration with design house Zagato, following its Zagato Coupé which was shown at the Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza in May.
When you looks closely behind the headlines you’ll discover a car that’s been designed with considerable attention to detail, so it seems a shame that some people may dismiss Aston Martin’s new Vanquish as nothing more than a warmed-up DB9.
The launch of Aston Martin’s range-topping DBS replacement, originally codenamed AM 310, seems to have become another in a long line of PR shambles, with the inevitable ‘leaked’ images making their way onto the interweb days before the official release.
After its appearance at last weekend’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, the AM310 concept car will be appearing at some of this year’s big summer events, including the Goodwood Festival Speed later this month.
Even if you’re not a classic car buff, there was still plenty to feast your eyes on at The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2012 this past weekend.
Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este is becoming a bit like Goodwood’s Festival of Speed, where it may have started out as a celebration of historic cars, it has now become a popular launch spot for several car makers to show their most beautiful pre-production ‘new’ models.
