2016 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance Gallery 1

Amelia Island Concours Hans-Joachim Stuck Porsche 962

Here is our first round of highlights from the 2016 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. There were so many incredible cars, of various eras, present that it’ll take a few of these galleries and numerous individual features to cover them all.

Racing legend, Hans-Joachim Stuck (pictured above), was the guest of honor. He rolled up during the award ceremony at the wheel of the Porsche 962 in which he won the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It was epic!

Best in show awards went to a 1930 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Town Car with some fancy coachwork (see below), and also to a 1952 Pegaso Z-102 Cupula Coupe, which was my personal favorite car at the show, as well. The Pegaso had a unique color scheme of bright yellow with red-wall tires and a pea green interior, and it’s striking curves and crafted details definitely made it the sight to be seen.

Enjoy this first highlight reel, and stay tuned for much more to come!

1934 Hispano-Suiza J-12 Sedanca Drophead Coupe at the Concours of the Americas

Hispano Suiza Concours of America 3

This incredible green 1934 Hispano-Suiza J-12 took our breath away at this years Concours of the Americas.

Back in the 1930s, the V12-powered Hispano-Suiza J-12 was among the most expensive luxury automobiles on the market. The chassis alone cost around $10,000, and then it still had to have a body fitted by a coach builder. The Hispano you see here had its coachwork done by Fernandez & Darrin.

Style didn’t come much more stylish than this back in the day, and you know this would turn more heads today than a modern Rolls Royce.

Enjoy the pics!
