A Concours d’Élégance in book formatA delicacy for car fans and collectors: legends of the automotive history, precious single pieces and the most popular old-timers, presented in a generous picture size. New automotive models are normally categorized according to their performance or consumption. This is quite different with historical cars: The motor shows from Pebble Beach to Villa d’Este show classic cars that probably will not reach best values in the wind tunnel. But their timeless elegance will surely make the hearts of all car lovers beat faster. Ansel Adams, photographer and honor juror at Pebble beach once brought it to the point: “The kind of car I want to be buried in.” From the Maserati Ghibli to the Ford Thunderbird: René Staud staged them all. Sometimes subtle, sometimes spectacular. Insightful texts come from Jürgen Lewandowski, co-organizer and Head of Car Selection Committee of the Schloss Bensberg Classics. This combination conveys the passion for extraordinary cars like almost no other illustrated book of that kind.
