Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este 2011: technology and innovation

The Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este is one of the most anticipated meetings in the world, like Goodwood and Pebble Beach.

Alongside the election of the finest collector cars, concept cars are also presented to a jury.

For the 2011 edition they will have to select among ten vehicles (including two “hors concours”),in which we will find four electric cars:
