Sydney is set to host one of the world’s great motoring events in October 2010 when

more than $100 million worth of rare and exotic cars will go on display at Concours

d’Elegance Sydney 10-10-10.

Concours d’Elegance 10-10-10 which was launched in Sydney today, will attract the

worlds best collectible cars and motoring celebrities and will be judged using a panel of

International judges to the standard laid down for the six globally recognized Concours.

The two-day festival will present the opportunity for auto devotees to celebrate the

science; fashion and elegance of some of the most mesmerising machines ever built

and will be staged at the historic St Patricks seminary in Manly.

A truly unique collection of vehicles with an estimated value in excess of $100million will

be on display for public viewing across the weekend, while the event will also showcase

the place of Australians in the world as connoisseurs of aesthetic beauty in all its forms.

A major part of Concours d’Elegance   will be the celebration of aesthetic beauty in all its

forms from fine food and wines to fashion, music and the enjoyment of amazing and

exotic automobiles – both old and new.

According to the chairman of Concours d’Elegance Sydney 10-10-10, Mr Sam Movizio

the event will be a truly International affair and will follow in the tradition of the first

Concours d’Elegance held in Paris more than one hundred years ago.

“We are proud to present Australia’s inaugural Concours d’Elegance event and

underpinning the stature of the event only vehicles considered to be exceptional in every

way will be eligible for entry in this world class competition,” says Mr Movizio.

“The finest collectible and rare cars from here and abroad will be eligible under the

International Concours criteria we will be using and only the top 50 will be eligible for

judging in competition,” he added.

“It will be a very exclusive event in the ilk of the six major Concours conducted around

the globe each year in France, Italy, the USA and the UK,” he said.

“Out philosophy is that this will be the ultimate Concours and there will be no

compromise when it comes to applying the International standards and judging rigor and

it is our goal to become the seventh global Concours event,” said Sam Movizio.

The honour of winning one of the major International Concours is highly sought after by

automotive collectors and success in major events can increase the value of rare

collectible cars by more than 30 percent.

Concours d’Elegance Sydney will also feature a number of umbrella events including

classic and vintage car auctions, satellite exhibits, food and wine events as well as

music performances.

“This will really be a festival to celebrate exquisite classic cars and the lifestyle around

them,” said Sam Movizio.


The inaugural Concours d”Elegance Sydney 10-10-10 will be staged at Manly’s St

Patrick’s Seminary, on 10th October 2010.

The event while inspired by prominent classic car events in Europe and the USA, will

have a uniquely Australian flavour and will bring together more than 150 rare classic

cars from across Australia and around the world.

“We believe an International standard Concours d’Elegance is long overdue in this

country and will enable the vibrant Australian vehicle restoration industry to showcase

the magnificent skill and craftsmanship of its artisans on a world stage,” said Sam


“Many overseas collectors now send their cars to Australia for restoration, taking

advantage of the fine workmanship on offer here and this event will amply demonstrate

these skills,” he added.

“Cars such as a the beautiful Bugatti Type 50 Tourer, the Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B and  

classic Mercedes Benz, Jaguars, Bentleys and Rolls-Royce will be amongst the

exquisite collection of classic cars at Concours d’Elegance 10-10-10,” he said.

“For both enthusiasts and the general public Concours d’Elegance 10-10-10 will be the

only chance to see such an array of beautiful cars in such a glorious surroundings right

here in Australia,” said Sam Movizio.
