Concours d’Elegance Suisse will bring together a glamorous collection of more than 80 cars that will be spread over 16 exceptional classes for the 2018 edition of the event. This selection of cars will include models from 1920 through 1939. The presentation will highlight the era of the shift “From Modernity to Design" while also illustrating the richness of automobile development.
The official website of Concours d’Elegance Suisse (CES) states: “Reviving a Swiss tradition dating back to 1927 in Geneva, the Concours d’Elegance Suisse will celebrate again Automobile Heritage and the art of mechanical engineering from June 22 to June 24, 2018, in the exquisite setting of the grounds of the Chateau de Coppet, historic home of Madame de Stael, offering a panoramic view of the Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva.”
The show will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the legendary Aston Martin DB4. The occasion will be celebrated by a dedicated class of select guests. The event will also engage in paying tribute to Carrosseries Suisses (Swiss Bodywork) alongside Futures Classiques (Future Classics) as well as sports sedans; models created between 1970 and 1985. Apart from these, there will be a great many number of events that have been planned to be held around Rolls-Royce’s Cullinan launch. Exclusive test drive of the cars will be only a privilege to a few guests in particular. Some of the premium benefits have been designed to be dedicated only for those. The test drives have been arranged by other car partners.
CES strives relentlessly towards its goal of achieving authenticity and originality and in pursuit of the goal, CES will be showcasing the preservation of automobile heritage by giving pride of place to unspoilt, unrestored or correctly restored cars.
The selection of spectacular classic automobiles is rarely seen openly in public. “Furthermore, the Concours d’Elegance Suisse will also hold exhibitions of masterpieces from artists and artisans themed on the automobile, offer the opportunity to test-drive the latest models of the event's automotive sponsors, and to complement the ‘art de vivre’ of classic cars, there will be a Culinary Pavilion where you can sample gourmet food specialties and meet up with friends for drinks,” says the official website of Concours d’Elegance Suisse (CES).
