The Holyroodhouse Concours of Elegance, held September 4–6 in Edinburgh, Scotland, is perhaps the most exclusive car show in the world. To be one of the 60 car owners at the show, you need a personal invitation by the Concours of Elegance’s Steering Committee — a panel of historic-car experts — and getting a parking spot at the Palace is itself considered a victory.
The winner is then decided by those 60 owners, making this also one of the most civil competitions on the planet, as well as one that reliably turns out some of the rarest cars in the world. Here, from our time at the show, are our favorite standouts.
