Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille 2017

4th edition of the Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille a success

The events by Peter Auto are known to fullfil all the expectations one might have. We all know the Peter Auto race events like the Le Mans Classic or the Spa Classic. 4 years ago, Peter Auto considered the Château de Chantilly,  one of the finest jewels in the crown of France’s cultural heritage, a perfect location for a classic car event. And we can only admit they were complete right. The majestic castle is a perfect background for the Concours d’Elegance. The domain and the beautiful gardens are a fantastic spot to admire the hundreds of classic cars that show up to be part of his great party.

To no surprise, French cars take a major part in the event. And in 2017 there’s no way around the obligate Ferrari Anniversary party at a classic car event or concours d’elegance. And all these beautiful cars are the best reason for hundreds and hundreds of classic car fans to shop up at the castle, walk in the gardens and enjoy the atmosphere.  Some of the participants of the concours d’elegance, and even visitors are dressed period-wise, what makes it even more enjoyable.

Back in the time , the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.0 was the most powerful road car Porsche could offer to the customers. No surprise the price was rather heavy, and only 55 cars were produced. Obviously few hit the road as a daily driver, as the car was a great ride on the track. This particular Porsche 911 Carrera RS 3.0 won 1st in class Great musicians’ cars at the concours d’elegance.
