This was a nice classic car event from Zurich Switzerland
The award ‘Best of Show’ went to classic driver dealer Koni Lutziger for his wonderfully preserved Alfa Romeo 6C.
It might not be as well-known as Pebble Beach, but the concours held just a few metres away from Lake Zurich is now in its eleventh year. After the pomp and ceremony of Monterey week, the small meeting comes as a refreshing change - the judges in Zurich concentrate more on originality and condition than a too-perfect restoration with glistening chrome.
So, more than meeting the strict requirements of the judging panel, the overall winner of the EFG bank-sponsored event was a vehicle high on patina and original features: the 1938 Alfa Romeo 6C 2300. And ‘best unrestored car’ was the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL ‘Gullwing’ – another time-warp example.
Some entries surprised even well-travelled commentators. In addition to mainstream Aston Martins, Jaguars and Ferraris, there were some real rarities. When was the last time you saw a De Tomaso Vallelunga, a Monteverdi High Speed, an Iso Grifo Can Am, a Matra Djet and a Zagato Aster Prototype in one place? For the quality and variety of its cars, the 2013 Zurich Classic Car Awards took some beating.
Special thanks to my friend Dinos Nikolaidis.
