Concours d'Elegance

The above video was filmed at our 2014 Pirelli Concours d'Elegance at the 45th Oktoberfest in Beaver Creek, Colorado.

Join us on Wednesday, July 12, for the Concours d'Elegance at the Audubon Park in New Orleans. You can prep your car for the concours Judges, or just display your car for all to enjoy! All are also encouraged to attend the Awards Presentation in the afternoon, where we will present the winners of the concours after the event's end.

 

A Concours d'Elegance, literally a competition of elegance, is at its heart a car show. But what a show! With shows hosted on the manicured lawns of Pebble Beach, or the splendid palace of Italy's Villa d' Este, the concours displays rare and beautiful cars, restored to perfection and gleaming like the multimillion-dollar jewels they are. In such venues, cars are judged by various criteria, including historical accuracy as well as the elegance of their presentation and a 100-point car is a rare gem indeed. But you don't have to be a deep-pocketed collector to enter and buff up your car in our concours.

Indeed, most CCA chapter concours events have more to do with members lavish attention to cleanliness and preparation than to authentic details and restorative perfection, though the judges do pay attention to historical accuracy and technical merit as well as fanatical housekeeping. The 2015 Oktoberfest Pirelli Concours d'Elegance hosted on the front lawn of the Stockton Seaview resort (pictured below) will be no exception, and you will not want to miss it.
