Roaring success for The I.C.E. St. Moritz – International Concours d’Elegance

St. Moritz, February 26, 2023 – The 2023 edition of The I.C.E. St. Moritz, ended yesterday afternoon with great success. The most anticipated and exclusive competition in the Engadine brought a parterre of dream cars to the frozen surface of the lake. The spectacular two-day exhibition in a breathtaking atmosphere saw a record with a total of more than 11,000 participants including drivers, collectors, enthusiasts, public and media from all over the world.

A glamorous auditorium presented 48 stars of the best classic and racing cars that have made automotive history and can hardly be seen in similar settings.

Over the course of the two days, the jury of experts and prominent personalities were called upon to judge the cars’ history, originality, authenticity and condition, interacting with individual collectors and also evaluating their driving dynamics during the sessions. The level of these stars did not make the jury’s job easy, and they finally decreed the winners in each individual category:

Open Wheels
Maserati 420M/58 “Eldorado” of 1958: from a moment when motorsport tried to unite European and US trends, and the first example of commercial sponsoring.

Barchettas on the Lake
Ferrari 500 Mondial Series II of 1955: the triumph of conservation vs. restoration

Le Mans 100
Ferrari 250 Testarossa “Lucybelle” of 1958: one of the most beautiful racing car designs ever

Concept Cars & One Offs
Lancia Strato’s HF Zero of 1970: a concept that changed car design forever

Queens on Wheels
Bentley S1 Continental Drophead Coupé of 1958: a true Queen of elegance.

The St. Moritz Concours d’Elegance’s “Best in Show” award, on the other hand, went to the beautiful Lancia Strato’s HF Zero, a futuristic body designed by Marcello Gandini.

“We are very satisfied with this 2023 edition that confirms the choice of the new format designed over two days. 48 hours of emotions where the stage of the St. Moritz Lake welcomed enthusiasts who came from all over the world. We would very much like to thank the Sponsors, Partners, Exhibitors and participating collectors who believed in this event and renewed their trust in us” – says Marco Makaus, creator and Patron of The I.C.E. St. Moritz.
