EVENT // Antwerp Concours d’Elegance


‘Concours d’Elegance’ is a well known expression, all over the world.

To use these words, you’ll need to exhibit some amazing cars.

This one was held at a castle in Wijnegem, Belgium.

Nice location and good weather. Now let’s move on to the cars.

It’s not the biggest event. They only alow 90 cars.

So don’t expect rows of Ferrari’s and Lamborghini’s.

But this nice F40 was certainly in the right place.

To make sure the event is something to look forward to, they have a different theme each year.

This year, it was the Italian brand Lancia.

My favorite car of the day? That must have been this De Tomaso Mangusta.

You’ve probably heard of the De Tomaso Pantera. Before they made that beast, they’ve build about 400 of these Mangusta’s.

Before you look at all the images, I want to give you some information about this silver bullet.

It is a Lagonda LG45 ‘special’. Although, it looks different to the ones you find on Google, if you look it up.

According to the sign, it went 240 km/h (150 mph) on the Nürburgring last year.
