Usually "Swiss Army camper" denotes a multifunctional camping vehicle, but the Lorinser Puch 230 GE gives it a more literal meaning. After finishing its Swiss military career, this particular G-Wagen has become a worldly two-person adventure camper.
The press release touts Concorso d'Elegenza Villa d'Este as "the world's most exclusive beauty contest for historic automobiles and motorcycles," a statement which reflects the small number of elite vehicles chosen for display each year. This year just 51 cars and 41 motorcycles competed.
The Villa Erba auction saw 11 cars exceed US$1,000,000, an 87 percent sell-thru rate, and an average price of $880,000. The main event though, the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, was beyond spectacular in every respect, with the finest of Europe's vast automotive heritage on display.
