The 2022 Classic-Gala Concours d’Elegance celebrates 110 years of Carrozzeria Bertone

Classic-Gala Concours d'Elegance in Schwetzingen: a traditional event

The ASC-Classic-Gala Schwetzingen which made the unique baroque park of the Schwetzingen Palace famous in the automotive scene, is the only independent international Concours d’Elegance in Germany. Each participant vehicle is grouped per category and construction year and is then judged by the 25-member international jury experts according to FIVA criteria. The name Classic-Gala stands for selected exhibits, solid elegance, culinary delights and an exclusive experience for the whole family in one of the most beautiful palace park in the world.

110 years of Carrozzeria Bertone

Considered by many, the most controversial italian coachbuilder, this year Classic-Gala pays homage to the company founded in November in 1912 by Giovanni Bertone. For this occasion, Classic-Gala has introduced a dedicated category for the concours and a exhibition with some of Bertone‘s creations:

BMW 3200 CS Bertone
Ferrari 308 GTB4
Lancia Stratos
Fiat Dino Coupé
Lamborghini Espada and Miura
Fiat 850 T Visitor Bus
Mazda RX 81 Aria
