THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CARS IN THE WORLD: ENTRY LIST

In 2016, the themes in the classes have been completely reshuffled to provide a new spectacle comprising cars that are seldom put on display.

A wide-ranging period of the history of the motor car will be covered as there will be a class devoted to steam cars, a major technological innovation that revolutionised society in the 19th century. The class showing the beginnings of aerodynamics will transport the crowd into the 20th century, the era in which the motor car reached its apogee and sports cars drove technical progress. Five classes will be devoted to racing cars of the last century, one of which will celebrate the fabulous career of one of the most famous and most-titled French team managers: Bugatti, the grand prix cars, front-engined Formula 1 cars, the cars of the Tour de France Automobile (1951-1964 & 1969-1986) and a Special ‘Homage Jean Todt,’ an extraordinary career. The 2016 event will also celebrate the creations of famous Italian coachbuilder, Zagato, with three classes. Cars with a less sporting but original pedigree will be the subject of the categories reserved for atypical coachwork (wood, fabric, wickerwork, etc.), large saloons and touring limousines, as well as masterpieces of French coach building. And last but not least the classes for English makes that have vanished, and the 50th anniversary of the Lamborghini Miura P400 unveiled at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show will round off the rich selection of vehicles on display.
