PURE CLASS IN A UNIQUE SETTING

More than 50 unique sports cars will assemble for a new edition of the ZOUTE CONCOURS D’ELEGANCE® in Knokke-Heist on 10 and 11 October 2020. Over the past seven years the sophisticated resort town on the Belgian coast has made a name for itself with a concours d’élégance for the rarest and most exceptional classic cars. The secret of that success? The exclusive character of both the entrants and the location. Something you would be interested in?

 

SHOW OFF THE BEST OF YOURSELF AT THE ZOUTE GRAND PRIX®

The ZOUTE CONCOURS D’ELEGANCE® presents the height of elegance in car design from yesteryear on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 October 2020. It is, however, just one of many events held as part of the ZOUTE GRAND PRIX®. Its compelling programme makes this four-day festival of classic and premium cars one of the highlights on the car calendar: from an auction of classic cars and exclusive automobiles by renowned UK auctioneers Bonhams to a world-famous two-day rally. The 250,000 plus visitors from all corners of Europe can also look forward to a dazzling open-air show featuring the latest models from the premium car partners in the streets of Le Zoute. Not forgetting the spectacular GT Tour that wraps up the festival… It all combines to make the ZOUTE GRAND PRIX® a fiesta for car lovers and fans of the Zoute way of life.
