William Eliot Morris Zborowski, Count de Montsaulvain (1858 – April 1, 1903) was a racing driver.
Born in Elizabethtown, New Jersey, USA, he was the son of Martin Zborowski (or Zabriskie) and Emma Morris. In 1880 he married a wealthy American heiress, born Margaret Laura Astor Carey (1853–1911), a granddaughter of William Backhouse Astor, Sr. of the prominent Astor family. She had been Madame de Stuers before her divorce from Alphonse Lambert Eugène, Chevalier de Stuers (1841–1919). They were the parents of the racing driver Louis Zborowski.
He was an all round sportsman but particularly liked Mercedes racing cars.
He resided in Melton Mowbray in England and became a naturalised Briton.
Eliot Zborowski was killed when his car crashed during the La Turbie hill climb in 1903; his riding mechanic, the Marquis of Pollange, was thrown clear and survived. His son Louis Zborowski was also killed at the Italian Grand Prix in 1924.
