Mini concept leads the parade at the 2014 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este
It's easy to get lost in paradise. That sentiment echoed throughout this year's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, nestled right on the shores of Lake Como, where a very privileged group of very special automobiles vied for best in show.
Over three days, hundreds of visitors were treated to not only a parade of competition models, but also special exhibitions celebrating the 110th anniversary of Rolls-Royce and Maserati's centenary. BMW Group, which sponsored the extravaganza, has made it a lovely habit of unveiling automotive concepts on these hallowed grounds: the Gran Lusso Coupé, BMW Zagato Coupe and the Concept 90 motorcycle. This year the focus was on, well, all things Mini.
