The Complete List of Concours d'Elegance Events

A concours d'elegance is an event where rare, classic, and vintage cars are displayed and judged based on their elegance, authenticity, and condition. The term "concours d'elegance" originated in France in the 17th century, and the event has since become a global phenomenon.

Unlike a typical car show, a concours d'elegance is more focused on the aesthetic and historical significance of the vehicles rather than their performance. The cars are typically displayed in a very pristine setting and are judged by a panel of experts based on criteria such as originality, authenticity, restoration quality, and overall beauty. The emphasis is on the preservation and celebration of automotive heritage and craftsmanship.

Concours d'elegance events are usually more exclusive and sophisticated, with a higher entry fee and stricter rules and regulations for participating cars. They often include other activities, such as auctions, exclusive dinners, and special presentations, which add to the overall experience of the event.

In summary, a concours d'elegance is a prestigious event that celebrates the beauty, history, and craftsmanship of classic and vintage cars, while a car show is typically a more casual gathering of car enthusiasts who share a common interest in all types of cars.
