Concorso Italiano 2016 is in the books. We had exquisite cars, entertaining guests, and delicious food!
We’d like to thank our wonderful sponsors who help make our show possible, as well as the hundreds of volunteers, and of course you, the Italian car owners who share your beautiful automobiles that make the day one for the memory book.
Congratulations to Brendan Gallaher and Michel Stern who took home Best of Show with their 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Tour de France.
We’ll release additional award winners next week so be sure to watch your email.
Friday night kicked off the celebration with a welcome reception for the ages. Well over 100 vehicles were placed early and more than 500 people gathered to kick off Concorso Italiano 2016!
By 10 AM Concorso Italiano was out of this world as Mr. Bruce Wanta shared his fascinating relationship with NASA and how he came to acquire the Mars Rover that was on display at the stage.
Just before the lunch break Matt Stone interviewed Tonino Lamborghini. The conversation was one for the ages. Reflective, insightful, entertaining and humorous, Tonino was hitting on all cylinders and had the audience roaring with laughter. Shortly after lunch the 2016 edition of the award winning Concorso Italiano Fashion Show kicked off. Our Social Media Manager again “impressed” with his… noticeable wardrobe choice followed by models showcasing spectacular high end brands.
There was much more excitement that filled the day including inductees to the Concorso Italiano Hall of Fame, the Doug Magnon Preservation Award, exciting interviews, and of course an endless array of cars.
