please let me share you the news about the 4th Edition of the « Monte-Carlo Concours d’Elégance » by Eberhard & Co. This exclusive event took place on the mythical Port Hercules of the Principality of Monaco from April 4th through April 7th 2013, joining forces on this occasion with the famous glass manufacturer Lalique, and the Monaco Motor Legend – Monaco Motor Show. These shows’ series have encompassed since 2010 vehicles that have shaped the modern automotive history. The events have gathered more than sixty booths representing the classic car world through clubs, professionals, and renowned European collectors.
Mecca of luxury and exceptional automobiles, the Principality of Monaco was able to house within the Monaco Motor Legend and the Monte-Carlo Concours d’Elégance by Eberhard & Co. a panel of some 150 exceptional vehicles, of which 25 cars beyond standards, registered to the competition.
The Swiss watch manufacturer Eberhard & Co., as main sponsor of the event, on this occasion had the opportunity to pay tribute to Tazio Nuvolari « le plus grand coureur d’hier, d’aujourd’hui et de demain » (Ferdinand Porsche). Visitors could admire at the same time private collection vehicles of SAS Prince Albert II of Monaco, as well as the Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 “Monza” (1931), kindly lent by the Alfa Romeo museum, on which Tazio Nuvolari won the Monaco Grand Prix of 1932.
On this occasion, the emblematic Eberhard & Co. collection has been presented, starting with the iconic model Chrono 4, the first chronograph in the watch history equipped with 4 aligned counters, the 8 Days model distinguished by an exceptional movement reserve and of course the Tazio Nuvolari collection, inspired and dedicated to the impressive Mantua pilot.
cheers and hope to see you in Basel 2013!
