Passione Engadina, vintage cars event was sponsored by Eberhard & Co. for the second consecutive year. The event took place during the Aug. 24-25 weekend with the participation of over 70 Italian vintage cars produced up to 1983. A great success, also thanks to a location —St. Moritz at the end of summer— that attracted participants from all over Europe.
The event was a parade of mainly Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini and Alfa Romeo
amazing historical pieces that could be admired along the Swiss Alps route on Saturday and in the center of St. Moritz at the Concours d’Elegance held on the following Sunday.
The “Best in show Tribute” was awarded to a Maserati 450 S from 1958 —pictured at the top— belonging to Werner Kummer. The “Elegance” prize was awarded to a Fiat 1500 Ghia Coupé of 1963, owner Helmut Wanke, an evergreen symbol of elegance and sporting spirit.
Eberhard & Co. awarded one of its prestigious timepieces to each winner of the three competing categories. Axel Marx, winner of the pre-war category with his wife as copilot in his fantastic Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Gran Sport from 1932, received a Tazio Nuvolari chronograph, from the emblematic collection dedicated by Eberhard & Co. to the great driver of the past.
Mario Peserico, Managing Director of Eberhard & Co. in team with Carlo Borgonovi on his Maserati Ghibli SS, obtained the third position in his category, an additional reason for the Swiss Maison to rejoice and strengthen its link with the world of timeless cars.
