The world’s richest people spend much of their time working to earn their fortunes. But they also make time for fun, and that often includes making appearances at some of the world’s most exclusive events.
The Concorso D’Eleganza Villa D’Este is an annual showcase of 50 of the world’s most beautiful cars built from the 1920s to the 1980s, held on the shores of Italy’s Lake Como.
The event is sponsored by BMW, which presents one car owner with the Best in Show award every year. In 2013, that honour went to noted American clothing designer Ralph Lauren — who commands a US$5.2 billion fortune — for his 1938 Bugatti 57SC Atlantic.
