The Greenwich Concours is a two-day affair with American cars being shown on the first and International vehicles shown on the second day. One of the highlights of the second day was the Bugatti class, which featured around 20 authentic high-performance, French-built vintage Bugattis from the American Bugatti Club. One example, a Bugatti Type 57C was later selected as Best in Show by the judges.

A true supercar is one that offers the comforts expected for the road combined with the kind of performance needed for the track. Ettore Bugatti, however, demanded one other element from each of his designs—elegance.

Many automakers could design elegant automobiles, but Ettore would be the first to take his elegant designs and make them at home on the street or on the track.

Ettore understood elegantly-designed automobiles but the science of aerodynamics was still rather new and practically unheard of in the 1920s. Still, Ettore was on the forefront of design and understood at least some of the basics of airflow and how that should translate into design.

With roughly twenty Bugatti's on display at the Greenwich Concours d'Elegance, the beauty, elegance, and evolution of the marque could be studied - from the early 1920s to the modern Bugatti Veyron.
