All the Winners at the 2014 «Concorso d’Eleganza di Villa d’Este».
Many awards have been delivered on the final days of the 2014 Concorso d’Eleganza di Villa d’Este» but with no doubt the supreme and outstanding winner was the unique Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS Spider built in 1931 and brought back to life by famous Italian classic car collector Corrado Lopresto.
His spectacular open-air two seater was immediately awarded the Coppa d’Oro top-prize from the selected public invited to Villa d’Este on the first day and went on to win the same honour next day from the paying public at Villa Erba.
The superlative Alfa Romeo, that was built by a forgotten coachbuilder by the name of Aprile in its shops at Savona, also won the referendum among young people under 16 years of age and, naturally, its class. That was the Class C: Gone with the wind.
Certainly a successful return for the re-born Spider.
Alfa Romeo and Maserati did indeed took by storm the latest edition of the Concorso.
The 1956 Maserati 450 S Roadster built by coachbuilder Fantuzzi, 1956 presented by the famous Swiss collector Albert Spiess was acclaimed the Best of Show by the Jury.
