The oldest running Concorso d'Eleganza, Villa d’Este brings the most rare classic cars to an intimate lawn alongside the western shore of Lake Como. This year included younger favorites like the retro futuristic 1969 Abarth 2000 Scorpione and the thoroughly 70s 132 Aster Zagato repleate with an in-dash 8-track—both from Fiat. Plus a celebration of Maserati’s 100th anniversary. The winner, a 1931 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS that also had stylings from Zagato, stood out for its mint condition and true uniqueness.
