A. Lange & Söhne will be supporting the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este for the second time. Maybe you remember the beautiful photos of the Lange 1 Timezone pièce unique for this classic car event that we showed you last year (see here and here). This magnificent celebration of the beauty of automobiles is taking place in Como, Italy, from May 24th to 26th.
Like last year, Lange & Söhne prepared a Lange 1 Timezone pièce unique for the winner of the legendary competition for classic automobiles and avant-garde prototypes. This pièce unique features two unique features compared to the normal Lange 1 Timezone. First and foremost, the city for the GMT+1 timezone on the rotating city ring, which is normally Berlin, now has been replaced with Como.
And secondly, the caseback has been hand-engraved with the coat of arms of the Concorso d’Eleganza. And if you wonder why the Lange 1 Timezone Concorso d’Eleganza pièce unique is shown in front of such a futuristic background, that has everything to do with the new BMW i8, which features intelligent eDrive concept that overcame the eternal contradiction between abundant power and low fuel consumption.
This concept car has no less than 356 BHP, while fuel consumption is a mere 2.7 liters per 100 km. Exactly, no more Toyota Prius, this the car we all want!!
I could show you even more photos of the new Lange 1 Timezone pièce unique Concorco d’Eleganza 2013, but I’ll make sure to share loads of photos of watches AND cars, live from this event. So stay tuned, as we’ll be covering this event that celebrates both the beauty of classic casr and avant-garde prototypes.
For now we’ll end with the hand-engraved caseback. If you like to visit the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, please visit their website here.
