Start Your Engines: A Stylish Look Back At The 2019 Concours d'Élégance Suisse
Last June, the fourth edition of the Concours d'Élégance Suisse took place at the gorgeous Parc du Château de Coppet, in Coppet, Switzerland. An exceptional setting that delivered breathtaking views of the Mont Blanc and Lac Léman.
For just a brief, wonderful moment, car collectors, petrol heads, and ever curious souls gathered in the idyllic Chateau de Coppet, bringing out amazing cars from all over Europe. It was the fourth Concours d'Elegance Suisse, and Watchonista was there to witness the unmissable Rendez-vous in all its splendor.
Swiss post card scenery
The Chateau de Coppet embodies in itself Swiss subtlety by mixing authenticity, humility, and elegance. The marriage of both worlds works perfectly as this year was the most attended yet with no shortage of horsepower!
This year, no less than 90 cars, divided into 15 categories were proudly showcased in the Chateau grounds. This edition also hosted a few iconic celebrations such as the 125 years of Delahaye, 100 years of Bentley, and the 100th anniversary of Citroen.
A precise and mechanical sponsor
Organized by Mathias Doutreleau, this show is the perfect way to preserve historic cars full of life, history, and soul. This year marked the second year where Breitling proudly sponsored the event. Part of the mechanical precision realm, the brand is very dynamic and highlights more and more her historical connection with the world of automobiles.
Best of Show
Throughout the weekend, many awards were given, but there is only one that stands out amongst all the others. The coveted "Best Of Show" award. The 2019 prize went to the 1953 Ferrari GT Europa coachwork by Vignale. The car featured at the Paris Motor show was the first ever to be powered by the famous 250 GT engine.
