The 6th edition of Chantilly Arts et Elegance Richard Mille took place on 25 September 2022 under the best of auspices. Even the weather avoided being capricious! Catapulted into the ranks of the world's benchmark concours d'élégance since its creation in 2014, this event continues to grow, both in terms of public attendance and the wealth of automobiles entered in the three competitions. Among the 9 concept cars competing in the Concours d'Élégance were two international revelations and three European revelations. A mini Motor Show of sorts!
To complete the picture, 40 clubs brought together 700 cars which, as usual, completed this rural picture that would undoubtedly have inspired the Impressionists. The public were invited to join in the traditional lunch on the grass.

On this last day of June, Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille lived up to its reputation, and the 18,000 spectators enjoyed a Sunday in the countryside between the parades of exceptional cars and the many events for young and old. It was also an opportunity to celebrate several anniversaries: the centenaries of Bentley and Ballot, the 110th anniversary of Bugatti, the 50th anniversary of the iconic Porsche 917, the 20th anniversary of the Pagani Zonda and the 50th anniversary of Jackie Stewart's Formula 1 title in a Matra. Nine concept cars are in the running for the Concours d'Elegance.

The 4th edition kept all its promises. Five concept cars were entered for the Concours d'Elegance: DS 7 Crossback Présidentiel, Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante, McLaren 720 S, Renault Trezor Concept and Citroën CXperience Concept. As part of the Concours d'Etat, Peter Auto decided to celebrate Ferrari's 70th anniversary in its own way, choosing the 24 Hours of Le Mans as its major theme. Twenty-eight of the Cavallino Rampante's machines, all of which had taken part in the most famous endurance race, were brought together for the occasion and divided into five classes; certainly one of the finest celebrations of this anniversary.

A major innovation that may well set a precedent: Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille will henceforth award 2 Best of Shows, as it is very difficult to compare a pre-war car with one built after the war.

The 2016 edition welcomed 13,500 visitors to the Château estate. Attendance was stable compared with 2015, and would certainly have been higher had the weather conditions - overcast skies and scattered rain in the morning - been as mild as in previous years. Eight concept cars were entered for the Concours d'Elégance, and the DS E-Tense made the most of all of them. The Concours d'Etat once again brought together around a hundred exceptional cars, brought in from all over the world for the occasion.

The revival of the great French tradition of Concours d'Elegance dating back to the 1920s has now taken its place among the events not to be missed, as demonstrated by the fact that Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille welcomed 13,500 visitors, an increase of 35%. Car enthusiasts, as well as families, were seduced by the programme celebrating the art of living and French savoir-faire, with numerous workshops and events throughout the Domaine de Chantilly, a majestic and idyllic setting.

Celebrating our historical, artistic and culinary heritage, the French Ministry of Culture is sponsoring the Competition in 2015.

The first edition of Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille lived up to all its promises. Leading collectors from all over the world were present; the result of two years of preparation and Peter Auto's international reputation.

This great national tradition dating back to the 1920s was resurrected on 7 September 2014 in the Jardins Le Nôtre. Revamped by Peter Auto, this competition offered 3 in 1: The Most Beautiful Cars in the World for the Concours d'Etat, a Concours d'Elegance reserved for manufacturers' concept cars associated with a fashion house and a Grand Prix des Clubs. The Chantilly estate became the setting for a Sunday of Elegance in the Countryside - with a host of activities for all the family.

The first edition of the event immediately established itself as one of the finest events of its kind, immediately winning Best Event of the Year in the Concours category at the Historic Motoring Awards ceremony organised by the British magazine Octane.
