2013 Concorso d'Eleganza

Held annually on the shore of Lake Como in Italy, the Concorso d'Eleganza at Villa d'Este ranks as the world's most exclusive car show, featuring vehicles often not seen in public for years. This year, the top prize went home with designer Ralph Lauren and his 1938 Bugatti 57SC Atlantic, one of the world's most expensive cars.
