Last weekend was our 6th visit to the Inner Harbor, and the weather couldn’t have been better. This year, we represented Sterling Motorcars. They arrived with a new Lamborghini Aventador S in Baloon Pearl White. When you are trying to maneuver through Mazda, the rear wheel steering makes turning effortless. Visibility is also much improved than earlier models thanks to a revised design of the glass engine cover. The panels are directly in line with the rearview mirror.
Next in was a new Rolls Royce Dawn wearing a nice 2-tone silver and gray finish. Blair’s Towing of Falls Church used their enclosed transporters to make sure the McLarens were clean, and a blue 570S Spider arrived behind a new 720S. Every year we get a chance to display the best Shelby Series 1 models from Wingard Motorsports. Bob Wingard purchased the remaining chassis & VINs from Shelby, so he is the go-to resource for the Series 1. He also engineered a modern interpretation known as the Fii Roadster. So he brought an original 2004 Shelby (car # 110 of 243). Once that was in place, he unloaded two versions of the Fii Roadster. It is built on the Series 1 chassis, but that is all they have in common.
You’ve probably seen the brushed aluminum car in our booth at Richmond or Amelia Island, but you won’t see it again. That’s because an unassuming Irishman bought all three cars that Wingard had in our booth. His total wire transfer was just shy of $600,000.
While it’s not close to our record sales at a show, its nice to see our clients make room for new inventory. It takes 8 months to build each one, so we’ll keep you updated on the progress of their secret new project.
To keep the booth ready for any offroading, American Expedition Vehicles brought a new JK350. This beast is powered by the SRT8 6.4 liter HEMI. It rolls on 37″ tires,and the locking differentials have 4.88 gears.
Of course, you can find more images and video on our dR Live Facebook and Instagram pages, so follow along as we are heading to Milwaukee then its time for Amelia Island. Tell us your favorite car from the booth in the comments below.
