This weekend, the town of Cernobbio on the banks of Lake Como in Italy once again became the center of attention for car enthusiasts. The Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este brought together a selection of classic models and new concept cars to the acclaim of the assembled audience.

And for the first time the cars were joined by motorcycles competing for class and overall victory in a competition of their own, as fans of two-wheeled classics headed to the Villa Erba for Saturday’s motorcycle concours.

Another new feature of the Concorso was the sale held by RM Auctions on Saturday evening, which tempted collectors with a line-up of 32 extraordinary cars.

The jury awarded the Trofeo BMW Group with it “best of show” honors to a 1968 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale. The time-honored Coppa d’Oro prize, which is decided by public referendum, went to a 1942 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS.

The “Concept Cars and Prototypes” category was topped by the Aston Martin V12 Zagato, celebrating its world premiere at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.

The Trofeo BMW Group in the first Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este for motorcycles was won by an American Pierce Four from 1910. After presenting the award, General Director of BMW Motorrad Hendrik von Kuenheim shifted the spotlight to plans for the years ahead: “We are looking to develop this concours into a meeting point for all enthusiasts of motorcycle design.”
