A weekend filled with automotive excellence.
The 26th annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance took place this past weekend in Amelia Island, Florida with an anticipated crowd in attendance to display some of the world’s most coveted and exclusive automobiles. The automotive action-packed weekend began with cars and coffee events, various auctions from RM Sotheby’s and Bonhams, as well as the Porsche-focused Werks Reunion car show. Throughout the day, continuous news of multi-million dollar vehicles like the 2007 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano and 1929 Duesenberg Model J sales electrified the crowd. Along with high-dollar auction sales, Hennessey Performance was on-site to unveil its new Venom F5 hypercar. Although the formal attention of the event was inside the auction room, outside on the streets of Amelia Island, supercars and hypercars of all kinds commuted through the winding backroads. Around the duPont REGISTRY spectator area, spectacular examples from Specialty Vehicle Engineering, Combat Motors, Vanderhall, Overfinch, Hanania Exotics, and Executive Coach Builders. Along with automotive displays, brands like Luxury Lease Partners, Oxford Cigar Co., EPIC Cigars, Medford Knives, and Metron Garage were on-site to highlight their luxury products.
Perfectly placed throughout the breathtaking landscape of the Ritz-Carlton were museum-grade examples such as VIN 001 Ferrari F50 represented by the team at CURATED, as well as countless others brought by owners and dealers from all around the world. Period correct apparel and accessories littered the field, giving spectators a close look as to how life was during the times when these vehicles were being rolled off the production floor for the first time. The 2021 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance concluded with a generous award ceremony, giving each winning participant the opportunity to drive their vehicle through the field for all to capture the moment. As a refreshing look towards the future of luxury automotive events, we are counting down the days to next year’s Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.
