A Concours d'Elegance is an often wonderful event, held with gorgeous cars in a breathtaking location, filled with sharply-dressed attendees. The smells of a concours are wonderful, to: gasoline and, usually, pure tobacco. The sights? Bright shades of color coming from the cars and their surroundings, mixing up with the wonderful light of the sun as the day goes on. But this concours? This one is more special than most.

85 years of designing some of the most iconic and "Italian" cars ever is a huge achievement, and deserves a long and heartfelt applause. If we still enjoy the sight of classic Ferraris, Cisitalias, Lancias, Peugeots, and more, much of it is thanks to Pininfarina. Sure, it didn't design every car in the world, but those that came from its factory in Grugliasco left a mark in automotive history. This is a story about its recent anniversary celebrations.

Upon arriving at the track on opening day, I quickly found myself in the paddock, chatting with an Australian chap who told me he came all this way just to participate in this race weekend. He then informed me that following the success of the prior year’s inaugural event, there was such an influx of interested participants that many had to be turned away—and it’s easy to see why.

I am not a big fan of waking up early, especially on Sundays—even moreso when rain is expected! However, I had to deal with a bit of laziness because I knew that it would be worth it. In fact: it didn’t rain, and that at the L.U.C Chopard Classic Weekend Rally, Sunday turned out to be far beyond my expectations.

Can motorcycles or brand-new concept cars be featured in a Concours d'Elegance? Yes, they can. I've always admired Villa d'Este for its variety and great diversification. The vehicles on display cannot just be judged by their age and place in history, but also by their sheer beauty. Motorcycles and concept cars bring the perfect balance to the event lineup, and add more interest to the event.

Mille Miglia and Villa d'Este, I think I may need to pass some time as a hermit, on a tall mountain with a vast library before calling myself a "car enthusiast" again! Villa d'Este never fails to amaze: you can go a full year before seeing an Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, and then at this concours, you come to see things that are from outer realms of the car hobby.
