The Cold is Beautiful

Winter is hard, and that’s why we love it. The mountains are the playground and the ice raises the heart rate against a backdrop of spellbinding landscapes. These are the emotions that bring with them the coldest competitions of the year dedicated to classic cars in Europe. The first one is the recently concluded Coppa delle Alpi organised by 1000 Miglia, a regularity race officially included in the Italian Great Events Championship, which departs from Brescia and finishes in the centre of Ponte di Legno.

Auctions in the Middle East

‘Future shaper’ is the expression used when we talk about Asia, so the collector car market could not help but discuss this subject. In recent weeks three auction houses have offered their different approaches to this challenge by competing in the Arab market, with different but challenging results. The Asian collector’s market is much younger than the European or American one and the offer has to be tailored accordingly; therefore, many recent supercars and hypercars (which, incidentally, is also happening at the American events) and racing cars have joined the classic ones. The first pair of auctions was organised during the Riyadh Car Show, the most important historic car event on the Arabian peninsula.

These, you need to know about

Even just the larger international events of 2019, the number of cars (and not just the cars!) that we’ve been able to admire has been incredible. We’ve therefore decided to play a game of finding the top 10 ‘hidden gems’. Unlike our rankings in The Key, which present the Top 100 Collectors, this is not down to scientific or objective research. But, rather, this is an instinctive choice, linked to the emotions that the sight of these extraordinary models has brought to us, and based on our prediction that, in future, you will still hear talk of these vehicles.

The orphan Duck becomes a Queen

There's a lot of talk about the Ferrari 250 GT0 and its stratospheric market values. But who knows how it was born? It was 1961, and Enzo Ferrari wanted a winning Grand Touring car to counter the growing performance of Aston Martin and Jaguar. With his histrionic style, the famous Enzo, instead of commissioning the racing department, asked one of his engineers, Giotto Bizzarrini from Livorno, to make a car with performances already superior than ever, working almost secretly in an isolated garage.

Audrain Concours d’Elegance:
a new School?

The Audrain Concours & Motor week represents a different event in the international automotive scene. The successful mix of private concerts, gala dinners in exclusive locations, open activities, young audiences, cars of exceptional level, allowed the organizers to offer a 360-degree event, young, diverse and fun. Among the elements of unicity compared to other "traditional" competitions of elegance, there is also the judging method adopted at the Concorso d'Eleganza. Although it retains all the classic elements typical of a Concours, Audrain differs by proposing a new method.

Audrian Motor Week:
The ingredients for a perfect event.

The Classic Car Trust was present at the first edition of the Audrain Motor Week in Newport, Rhode Island. With a young and modern approach and a blend of new original ideas, the Audrain Motor Week plans to become a new reference point for this type of events. History, Luxury, Sport. The core values of the lifestyle of Newport. The values that inspired the vision of Nicholas Schorch to create an elegant, prestigious and international Motor Week on the American East Coast. A self-made businessman, philanthropist and respected collector of classic cars, he created an event that would encompass Concourse of Elegance, Seminars, Car Exhibitions and more.
