The Inaugural Istanbul Conours D'Elegance was held over the weekend of the 22nd-23rd of June 2013. Situated in the grounds of the spectacular Küçüksu Palace, the event was guaranteed phenomenal weather and a stunning location. The Küçüksu Palace was built in the 1800s as a summer palace for the Sultans. It is located In-between Istanbul's two famous bridges on the asain shore of the Bosphorous, the palace has extensive gardens including a private beach. Some 60 cars were present on the lawns of the pavilion for the two day event split into 5 distinct classes.
Judging panel was made up of Dominik Fischlin (the presient of FIVA Switzerland and a member of the selection panels for both the Villa D'Este Concours and the Mille Miglia), Demir BerberoÄŸlu (the ex-president of TOSFED,Turkish Motorsports Federation), Saydun GökÅŸin (FIVA steward for Turkey and the current president of the Classic Automibile Club), DR Ekber Onuk part of the Anadol STC-16 project, Turkey's first automobile designed for serial production), Vaughn Andrako (a leading automotive historian), Reinhard Schmidlin, (the founder of the Oldertimer Dealership in Toffen, CH.) In addition to DK's founder David Cottingham.
