Classes and "Best of Show"

At the 20th Internat. Concours d'Elegance Automobile Schwetzingen from 30 August - 1 September 2024 a jury of international automobile experts will scrutinize 160 selected exclusive vintage cars to award prices in several categories.

More than 90 trophies and awards await for the winners of all FIVA classes, the special classes, the Classic-Gala Grand-Prix and the "Best of Show", which is the supreme award of all classes.

"Best of Show"-Trophäe by Ole Koch


"Best of Show" means something perfect to me. You could also say something genuine, perfect, timeless, elegant, unique, but also uncompromising. Something durable and enduring. Always sovereign and beyond any doubt. The center, and therefore a round thing." Ole Koch


This trophy was designed and created especially for the Concours d'Elegance Automobile Schwetzingen.

The trophy will be presented during the event in the art-exhibition in the southern wing of Palace Schwetzingen.
