Vintage cars not only are an object of fancy for collectors, but they are also contenders for some of the most prestigious awards to be handed out. One such award is the Louis Vuitton Classic Concours Award, which is presented to the Best of Show winners at the world’s most prestigious automobile Concours d’elegance. And this year’s lucky winner is the 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 B Touring Berlinetta owned by America’s Jon Shirley. Restored using original parts, the stunning car has also been a proud recipient of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este held at Lake Como last year.
Another important award given out is the Concept Car Award, which is believed to be a potential winner of the Concours d’élegance after 40 years when it goes vintage. And this time around, the award was picked up by BMW for their Vision EfficientDynamics concept vehicle, which was first displayed at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year.
