Concours d’Elegance has always been a benchmark event abroad, attracting some of the most spectacular cars to the most exclusive and prestigious events across the globe.
It all started in 17th century France, where the aristocracy would parade their horse-drawn carriages through the parks of Paris.
Since then, the Concours d’Elegance has evolved to become the ultimate competition for manufacturers, custom coachbuilders and car owners to display their finest cars to be judged according to the beauty of their design.
A pretty classy affair to say the least.
Now, for the first time ever, the world-class event is making its way to South Africa!
The event will be held at Sun City from Friday 9- to Sunday 11 September 2016, promising to host more than 150 of SA’s finest prized collector cars for the public to see and admire.
The main Concours judging will be happening on the Sunday.
The weekend aims to bring together a mix of the finest classic, luxury and sports vehicles from around the country. In addition to the automotive parade, car owners and their partners will be encouraged to dress in a fashion that matches their car’s era and style.
“We see this as an opportunity for owners of these special cars, their pride and joy, to express themselves to the fullest extent” said Ross Crichton, Organiser of Concours South Africa and a veteran supercar aficionado.
“The Sun City venue provides the ideal backdrop to showcase South Africa’s finest cars, and the venue enables participants to enjoy the cars and themselves to the fullest over an unforgettable weekend, surrounded by like-minded people.”
Spectators will be granted free entrance to the event, encouraging petrolheads from all cultures to join in the celebration and appreciation of these magnificent machines.
