world of watchmaking. Once again the parallels of design and craftsmanship between classic cars and our mechanical timepieces create a strong foundation for our partnership.”
Marcus Görig, Car Specialist, Germany, RM Sotheby’s, added: “RM Sotheby’s is delighted to be the official auction partner of the Concours of Elegance Germany. The Concours of Elegance in the UK has established itself as one of the pre-eminent Concours events in Europe, and the addition of a new event in Germany presents a wonderful opportunity for RM Sotheby’s to further establish its reputation in this hugely important market. We look forward to what we know will be a spectacular showcase of wonderful motor cars.”
Before the cars take up their places in Gut Kaltenbrunn, they will embark on a tour of the Bavarian countryside. The four-day tour will explore the best of Bavarian food, drink and tradition, as well as the splendor of its natural surroundings. Having arrived at Gut Kaltenbrunn, the first day of the event will be highly exclusive, with just 1,200 guests by invitation only. The second day of the show welcomes more cars and more visitors for the public day.
James Brooks-Ward, Thorough Events CEO, said: “Germany has a renowned pedigree of exceptional automotive excellence. Germany deserves a first class international Concours. With the support of A. Lange & Söhne as our Presenting Partner, alongside the generosity of RM Sotheby’s, Classic Driver and Käfer, we’re excited to be bringing a truly world-class collector car event to Germany. We already have the foundations of a spectacular new addition to the global motoring calendar, and with the enthusiasm of our entire community of automotive collectors, we will translate all the magic of our other events into the Concours of Elegance Germany, with a crucial Bavarian twist.”
