On Sun­day Sept. 11, the 20th an­nual Rad­nor Hunt Con­cours d’Ele­gance car show drove in a show-stop­ping col­lec­tion of cars and mo­tor­cy­cles for area car en­thu­si­asts. The Con­cours d’Ele­gance, which de­buted in 1997, is an in­vi­ta­tion-only event bring­ing to­gether 100 of the most in­ter­est­ing and sig­nif­i­cant au­to­mo­biles. The event, held on the grounds of the Rad­nor Hunt in Malvern, hosted close to 3,200 at­ten­dees over the three days fea­tur­ing Lan­cia as this year’s mar­ques along with Mercedes Benz 300SL Coupe and Roadster and mid-cen­tury mo­tor­cy­cles.

Win­ners in­cluded the two Best of Show win­ners; one for Sport­ing Mar­que and the other for NonS­port­ing Mar­que: the 1958 Fer­rari 250 Tour de France Com­pe­tizione Ber­linetta Scagli­etti, owned by Dr. Roy Brod of Lan­caster, and the 1931 Mar­mon Six­teen Con­vert­ible Sedan owned by Richard Driehaus of Chicago, Ill.
