This event, the brainchild of Peter Auto, combining Concours d’Elegance, Concours d’Etat, Concours de Club and the French Art de Vivre has been held three times (2014, 2015 and 2016), and has conquered the general public as well as attracting participants from all over the world. It is now part of the three most prestigious rendezvous of its type and this year’s Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille, the fourth, promises to be an even more spectacular event.
The marriage of the motor car of the future and fashion
France was the cradle of the Concours d’Elegance in the 1920s and the initiator of these very highlyvalued events in which exceptional cars for the era, often personalised by renowned coachbuilders, were on display accompanied by elegant women wearing the latest fashions created by the great names in French couture. One of the driving ambitions behind Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille was to revive this glorious epoch by inviting manufacturers and car stylists to display their latest concept cars, the interpretation of the make in question’s future vehicles, by associating them with models in the most beautiful outfits of the fashion houses in a unique parade that has received a rousing welcome from the public.
As a link between past, present and future of automotive world, Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille will host an event for supercars and ultracars from the 1980s until today.
This rally, held for the first time in 2016, attracted around 30 limited-production modern sports cars noted for their extreme performances.
