The annual pageant for the most elegant vintage and classic cars, Concours d’Elegance, will this year be themed “Beauty and the Beasts”.

“The high fashion and glamour of the event is represented by “beauty”.  The mighty machines from yesteryear are personified by “beasts”. 

This year’s theme is brought to life through a traditional fairy tale illustration style designed to feel like a story book cover of old with a refreshing, elegant African narrative that only the CBA Africa Concours d’Elegance could inspire.” said Chris Pasha, Commercial Bank of Africa Group Head of Marketing.

The bank is the title sponsor for the event organised by the Alpha Romeo Owners 1970.

“Concours is all about classic cars and bikes and just as the interesting people who own them have fascinating stories to tell such as tales of incredible journeys and historical highlights. And this is where our story begins “Beauty and the Beasts”, a wonderland of classic tales.” added Pasha.

The event will be held at the Ngong Racecourse despite the ongoing construction on Ngong Road.

According to Peter Wanday, chairman of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club, the venue will still be accessible form the Southern Bypass.
