THE Concours d'Elégance means a "competition of elegance" and refers to an event where prestigious vehicles are displayed and judged.

It dates back to the 17th century France, where aristocrats paraded horse-drawn carriages in the parks of Paris during summer weekends and holidays.

Over time, carriages became horseless and the gatherings became a competition among vehicle owners to be judged on the appearance of their vehicles.

These events are often held at automobile shows, after racing competitions or, especially in the United States, as a fundraising event for charities.
