Concours d'Elegance 2020 Hampton Court Palace, Surrey

Concours d'Elegance is a French term that means "competition of elegance" and refers to an event where prestigious vehicles are displayed and judged. The tradition dates back to 17th century France where aristocrats paraded horse-drawn carriages in the parks of Paris during the summer.

The modern day Concours d"Elegance brings together some of the rarest cars from around the world together with hundreds of examples of some of the finest cars from the UK's most prestigious car clubs from vintage auto mobiles to the most modern high performance supercars.
