The French term ‘Concours d’Elégance’ meaning ‘Competition of Elégance’, dates back to the 17th Century. However, in the beginning a traditional ‘Concours d’Elégance’ referred in fact to a gathering of prestigious cars, displayed and paraded through the beautiful Parisian parks – it was only later with the demise of the horse-drawn carriage, that these events became competitive.
A beautiful event in a beautiful setting with fine-dining, champagne, spectacular cars and likeminded people, Salon Privé offers an unforgettable experience with a unique and timeless approach to the world of Concours d’Elégance.
With a full itinerary of parades and awards alongside all the automotive and luxury brands on show, there is something for everyone at the Salon Privé Concours d’Elégance.
