Classic Cars: On April 24-26, a select range of classic cars will converge at the ultra-luxe Grand Hotel Villa d'Este on the shores of Lake Como in Italy for the 80th anniversary of the Concorso D'Eleganza. First staged in 1929 at the famed resort, the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este now ranks as the world's most tradition-rich event of its kind, and the hotel (where part of Casino Royale was filmed) will once again be transformed into a unique backdrop for the most beautiful cars from past eras and the boldest concept cars of the present.

More than 50 classic beauties spanning six decades of motoring history have been selected to appear at this year's Concorso, which is presented by BMW with sponsorship from Swiss watchmaker Girard-Perregaux. The starring attraction at this year's event is likely to be Ralph Laurens stunning 1938 Bugatti Atlantic 57SC (above), which has won numerous awards. One of only three built, the car will be making its first European appearance in 18 years. Other highlights include a 1969 BMW 2800 Spicup Coupe concept car unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 40 years ago, and a 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B.
