Starting March 7, the fairways of The Golf Club of Amelia Island at The Ritz Carlton Amelia Island will be taken over by some of history’s most important automobiles thanks to the 2014 Amelia Concour d’Elegance.
Making an appearance at the show is the very first BMW Art Car, which is a BMW 3.0 CSL “Batmobile” GT Racer designed by Alexander Calder. The car first debuted in May 1975 at the Louvre, and has remained an historic and iconic car since, with new BMW Art Cars being released to this day.
Nine rare Chrysler concept cars from the forties, fifties and sixties will be displayed on fairways, giving guests a chance to see some of the most important cars in Chrysler’s history. Included in the concept cars are the 1941 two-seat Chrysler Thunderbolt roadster, 1941 dual-cowl Chrysler Newport and the 1963 Chrysler Turbine car.
With the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance being so close to the ocean, a flood of beach cars will be storming the show. Cars such as the Fiat Jolly, with its wicker seats and fringed canvas top, and the 1948 Ford Dune Mobile will be making appearances, as well as the Pininfarina Eden Roc and Meyers Manx.
Kicking off the Amelia Concours is the duPont REGISTRY Live Hangar Party, held on March 7 at the Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport. The world’s most exotic cars, vintage and contemporary aircraft, high performance boats, custom motorcycles and premium luxury lifestyle products will be on display from companies such as American Eurocopter, First Class Customs, First Impressions, MBL Audio and Airstream. Tickets for the event are on sale now at duPontREGISTRYLiveAmelia.com.
