Note the two categories that honored the 60 years of the Aston Martin DB4 and Ferrari 250 GT Coupe. Finally, one of the most recent models was awarded Lamborghini Countach LP400 of 1977 in the category of rear-engined sports car models produced between 1960 and 1977.

In the name of a Swiss tradition dating back to 1927, the Concours d'Elégance Suisse for the third time it celebrated the automotive heritage and the art of mechanical engineering in the splendid setting of the park Coppet Castle, historic home of Madame de Staël, which offers a panoramic view of Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva.

Il Concours d'Elégance Suisse showcased a selection of spectacular classic automobiles rarely seen in public, while also paying homage to precision mechanics thanks to the manufacture Breitling who, as a worthy ambassador of the Swiss experience, delighted those present with an exceptional display of fine watches.

The theme of this edition of the competition was focused on the years between 1920 and 1939, that is the years that represent the passage from modernity to design, and which have a special connection with Breitling. At that time the brand forged strong ties between motoring ed aviation, two worlds that greatly influenced the design of some of the most important models of the Grenchen maison.

Many of Breitling's current products are inspired by those decades, thus dramatically bridging the gap between past and present. In the small shop inside the park of the Coppet Castle, Breitling presented its new models, but in addition to the current collection, visitors were able to admire the historic models of the house designed in the 1920s and 1930s.
