The ingredients of the Concours of Elegance Poltu Quatu Classic has been the key of the success of this first edition of the event: the Emerald sea of this corner of Sardinia, the timeless class of authentic jewels on four wheels, the enchantment of a Haute Couture fashion show that was the prelude to the parade of cars set up, or perhaps it's better to say, painted, in the magical setting of Poltu Quatu.

And the winner is the Alfa Romeo 1750 Gran Sport presented by Swiss collector Axel Marx, a wonderful car created in just six exemplars by the Coachbuilder Brianza in 1932.The elegance of this car has made unanimous the judgement of the noble international jury chaired by Dominique Fischlin (FIVA) and composed by Max Girardo (RM Auctions), Stefano Pasini (FIVA) and Luciano Bertolero (Auto Classic) even if it has to be said that it was not easy to assign the "Best in Show" saw the highest level of cars selected by Corrado Lopresto for this first edition of the contest.

The three cars winners in their classes (the Lancia Lambda Torpedo from the Nicolis Museum, the Fiat 8V with Giuliano Bensi and the Jaguar E Type Spyder with Ugo Amodeo) received from the hands of beautiful models dressed by Peruvian designer Claudia Bertolero a magnum bottle of Dom Perignon, main sponsor of the more glamorous classic cars event ever seen before. 
The Fiat 1500 Viotti of Daniele Spataro was awarded with the Auto Classic Cup for the best restoration and Francesco De Leo with the Alfa Romeo 1900 convertible that belonged to Pope Giovanni XXIII has been awarded with the trophy of the international fair of Padua Autoemotodepoca for bringing  in Sardinia the car with the most important historical past.
Among the cars 1947 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 S Stabilimenti Farina has already joined AUTOMOTIVE MASTERPIECES.
