Peter Auto -- organizer of the fifth Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille Concours, held at France's Château de Chantilly on Sunday, June 30, 2019 -- has announced over 130 exceptional cars on the bill for this year's event, featuring in around 15 original or anniversary inspired classes.

This year's Concours will notably feature a Ballot that competed in the legendary Indianapolis 500 Miles some 100 years ago, in 1919. Driver René Thomas took pole position and finished 11th at the wheel of the car heading to this year's Concours de Chantilly. Visitors will also be able to see two much more modern, but no less exceptional models: the famous 1988 McLaren MP4/4, which proved virtually unbeatable that year (15 victories in 16 Grand Prix races) in the hands of Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost, as well as a 1997 Mercedes CLK GTR which raced in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
 
Stylish English cars are on the agenda too, with several Bentley models from the inter-war years -- such as a Speed Six "Old No. 3" that competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1930 -- not to mention an Aston Martin DBR1 which also took part in the famous race, albeit around 30 years later.
 
Other models already on the bill include a 1948 Talbot-Lago T26 Grand Sport Coupe, a Toyota 2000 GT, a 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400 S and a 1971 Porsche 917.
 
Other events organized by Peter Auto include the Tour Auto Optic 2000 and the Le Mans Classic, now held in alternate years to the Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille Concours.
