In what was once an endless expanse of citrus, the city of Anaheim owes its existence to Mr. Disney and his eponymous theme park. As the perfect setting for an Auto Show, the Anaheim convention center was the site of our first duPont REGISTRY Live event of the fall 2017 season. In our 6th year partnering with Motor Trend, we allowed our fans to see what our dealers are capable of.
Still reeling from our 3 day trip from Wide Open Baja, we made it back across the border to build our booth. First in was a new Vanderhall Venice. The nimble 3-wheeler is 50-state legal as a motorcycle and powered by a 1.4 liter Chevrolet turbo-four.
Next up was a heavily modded Jeep Wrangler from American Expedition Vehicles. Taking the Wrangler Unlimited to unprecedented levels, it is ready to head off-grid.
Everyone loves Eleanor, so an imposing matte-black 68 Mustang Fastback arrived from Fusion Luxury Motors. Their factory in Chatsworth will transform any 67 or 68 Mustang into an exact likeness of the movie car, and this one has a modern driveline. Roush supplied a supercharged version of the 5.0-liter Coyote along with a beefy AOD automatic transmission. Also from Fusion was a 2015 Ferrari Speciale Aperta, 2015 Rolls Royce Wraith, and a 1991 Land Rover Defender. This one really took us by surprise. Instead of the uninspiring TD5 engine, it has Corvette LS3 power and an automatic transmission from an Escalade.
Since the booth was mirror-imaged across the aisle, we had ample space for the stars of the show. Pagani Newport Beach and iLusso partnered to deliver a 2015 LaFerrari, 2014 Pagani Huayra, 2015 McLaren P1 and the world’s only Transformers-inspired Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.
Needless to say, we had several million dollars on display for the citizens of Orange County. If you missed the show, check out our Facebook and Instagram pages and prepare to be amazed. The first show of the season was a smashing success, so get ready to see us in Nashville on November 3-5 and Seattle on November 9-12th. As always, stay with us here on Autofluence for complete coverage of our events.
