It provides the very highest level of prestige without being elitist, as owners and collectors rub shoulders with enthusiast fans of the historic motoring lifestyle.

Auto Royale is about stories. Every car on show has one, and every story is proudly told. Whether it be one of faded glory, movie star provenance, exceptional rarity or of a life sweated out on the track – Auto Royale will educate as well as entertain its visitors.

Auto Royale is authentic. Entry is both by invitation and application, offering a world-class Concours which is equally attainable for both international collectors and local collectors with their own exceptional vehicles. This is a true, multi-category Concours d’Elegance with a mix of traditional and celebration classes, assessed and considered by a panel of international judges along strict International Chief Judges Advisory Group (ICJAG) guidelines.
