Wilhelm Schmid, CEO of A. Lange & Söhne, before his own 1954 Fraser Nash Le Mans Coupe.

Wilhelm, great to see you. We realize Lange supports the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Como, Northern Italy. would you be able to reveal to us how this new occasion organization here in the UK contrasts and why its critical to Lange?

You know what – nearly everything. One should perceive that the occasion on Lake Como has critical recorded importance having been running since 1929. Here, at Hampton Court, the Concours of Elegance is new in comparison yet take a gander at the setting. I like the vehicles on show, it’s judged and run by proprietors, not custodians and it’s brimming with enthusiastic individuals. At last, perfect craftsmanship, specialized development and immortal esthetics are the basic beliefs that support both the Concours of Elegance and A. Lange & Söhne. Gatherers and specialists of current accuracy watches share an enthusiasm for innovation and elegance with fans of notable vehicles. Hitherto the entirety of my assumptions for what the occasion offers have been surpassed.

Wilhelm, mention to us what we are looking at here?

Pointing to the delightful vintage vehicle before us – My 1954 Fraser Nash Le Mans Coupe. One of nine ever made.

Was it a reclamation project?

No, in undeniable reality I got it completely reestablished, I just needed to put new tires on it and supplanted a couple of little things to a great extent. I need to say, the person who reestablished it in any case worked effectively. You can advise it truly was a work of affection, it’s actual unique yet what I love most is that it’s not over-reestablished, it’s a vehicle you can drive – no trailer sovereign. There are a couple of dings to a great extent and I gathered them so I’m content with that.

Will we be seeing further exemplary vehicle movement from Lange?

No, I don’t think so. We currently have three occasions, this one, the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Como and Classic Days at Dyck Castle close to Düsseldorf. In this way, we will be in Italy in May, August at Dyck Castle and afterward back here in September. One year from now we will truly increase the perceivability of the Dyck Castle. For me as a vehicle darling, this is just about as great as it gets.

And now, a choice of the best exemplary vehicles in front of an audience at Concours of Elegance:
