We saw so many fantastic cars at this year's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este that it's impossible to say which was our favorite. Until we figure that out, here's the result of the most prestigious competition of them all from the beautiful banks of Lake Como.

The stunning photos are the work of Attila Nagy from Gizmodo, who took the time and even used some old Soviet lenses to get the best shots for us.
