Welcome to

Some of the 2013 Best of Show award winning cars from Concours d’Elegance events in the US are shown below. The Best of Show (or Best in Show) vehicle is decided by an experienced panel of judges and is presented during the awards ceremony, where the owner typically drives the car to the podium area and is interviewed by the Master of Ceremonies.
