Virtuozity - - Society -

For the first time, Katara Cul­tural Vil­lage, close to Qatar’s cap­i­tal Doha, will turn into an open-air au­to­mo­bile and clas­sic car fes­ti­val for out­stand­ing ve­hi­cles when the first Con­cours d’el­e­gance Qatar oc­curs from Fe­bru­ary 2 to 6, 2016.

The main fo­cus of the multi-day event is the beauty con­test, in which high­class his­tor­i­cal ve­hi­cles with a fas­ci­nat­ing back­ground join and com­pete in dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories to win the favour of the jury, made up of ex­perts in the fields of cul­ture, tech­nol­ogy, de­sign, history and jour­nal­ism. About 40 ve­hi­cles will be mon­i­tored and eval­u­ated with re­gard to his­toric, tech­ni­cal and aes­thetic as­pects, as well as in re­gards to safety, au­then­tic­ity and re­fine­ment of de­sign.

The sec­ond high­light is the Fes­ti­val of Clas­sic Cars, tak­ing place si­mul­ta­ne­ously. Clas­sic car own­ers (with cars up to 1985 model year) will present their cars on the river­side promenade. The fes­ti­val will also present de­sign stud­ies and pro­to­types from var­i­ous epochs. Mean­while, the event will also see the Rally Sheikh Faisal Bin Qas­sim Al Thani Mu­seum, which will see rar­i­ties on four wheels hit the road through­out the desert scenery to reach the Sheikh Faisal Bin Qas­sim Al Thani Mu­seum, the big­gest pri­vate mu­seum in the world.
