Beautiful machines in Burgundy

Cars and motorcycles have always fascinated young and old alike. In Beaune and Burgundy, there are many opportunities to come across beautiful automobiles.

Car rallies regularly pass through Beaune, which since spring 2024 has been recognized as a host town for vintage vehicles by the FFVE (Fédération Française des Véhicules d’époque). It’s not unusual to see Aston Martins, Bentleys, Bugattis and other automotive marvels parading through the streets of the wine capital.

A few minutes from Beaune, the Château de Savigny is a paradise for mechanical enthusiasts, with its 3 collections (Abarth, motorcycles and airplanes). And more unusual, races such as the 24h de Beaune, punctuate the festive life of our Burgundy town.

Want to get in your car? We’ll take you on a tour of all the opportunities to hear the engines roar.
