Villa d'Este Elegance Contest - This Year's Winners
|   Sunday, July 16, 2017
The jury of the prestigious Elegance Contest Villa d'Este nominated the winning cars and motorbikes which were the focus of the event this year. Indeed, all the winning cars were of extraordinary extravagance -not even the motorbikes were left behind.

Developed between 1929 and 1949 and constantly resumed from 1999, the Italian elegance contest, which has traditional partners like the German manufacturer BMW and FIVA (Federation Internationale Vehicles Anciens), gathered at this year's edition a number 52 very rare historical cars manufactured between 1908 and 1973.


These were classified into 8 different classes, two concept cars built in 2016, as well as a number of 18 very rare classical motorcycles manufactured between 1926 – 1975, and classified on 6 different classes plus 3 prototypes made in 2016.
“Best of Show” for the best car of the event was awarded by the jury to the Alfa Romeo Giulietta SS Prototipo 1957, produced in a single copy.
For the fourth consecutive year this award was won by Alfa Romeo cars. The specimen in question has a great design, and under the hood lies a unit with a displacement of 1.3 liters and 100 hp.

The same Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Special Prototipo also won the trophy BMW Group Italia, which was voted on by the public at Villa d'Erba on 27 May.
The “Coppa d'Oro” (Gold Cup) is awarded to the car which was loved by the public. This was one of the most extravagant models, 1935 Lurani Nibbio, which is a one-seat racing car equipped with a 0.2-l single-cylinder engine.

This car has beaten 12 speed records in its category during the years 1935-1939.
In the category of concepts and prototypes, the prize was given to the concept Renault TreZor, which impressed with its futuristic design and the technical underpinning borrowed from formula E, delivering 350 hp and a torque of 380 Nm. On the way to the trophy, Renault Trezor graciously overtook Techrules Ren, China's first electric car concept, developed in collaboration with Italdesign and presented for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show, but also a machine that many people saw victorious - BMW 8 Series Concept.

Now, Renault Trezor confirms that it's a great car. The prototype received the award for the most beautiful concept in the Villa d'Este Elegance Contest. But this is not the only prize received by Trezor this year. In March, at the Geneva Motor Show, the French model was named Concept Car of the Year at the Car Design Awards.

In the motorcycle category, the jury awarded the “Best of Show” to the 1933 Puch 250 Indien-Reise motorcycle, while the audience chose the Ducati Cafe Racer concept in 2016 as the favorite.

The motorcycle belongs to Peter Reisch in Italy. The historic motorcycle owes its name from a spectacular journey from Vienna to Mumbai. The expedition to India was an international sensation at that time, 84 years later, the motorcycle maintained in its original condition was again the focus of attention at Villa d'Este.
In addition to the more obvious trophies, more than 25 awards have been awarded for different classes and categories.
