Amelia Island Concours 2012 marks an important collector car show of this season and will be attended by legendary collectors, celebrities, and business people. The 17th annual show displayed finest and most expensive cars of the country which enthralled a group of approximately 23,000. Nearly three hundred colorful vehicles with incredibly high prices were on display. One could see on the show prominent private, public and corporate collections with big names including Chrysler Ford, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. For the judges of Amelia Concours picking winners and awarding the best of show winners were really a tough task.
Amazing extraordinary vehicles graced the show field. The Amelia Island’s coveted Concours was awarded the prize for outstanding vehicle. Both the winners were stunning choices. The Best of Show Concours went to Bugatti Type 57C of 1938 which was owned by Off Brothers Collection, Michigan. The Type 57 is one of the three existing productions of Bugatti which had stopped its production after the WWII. The Ferrari 330 LM of 1962 model (it is also called as 3765 GTO) owned by Jim Jaeger, Ohio got the honor of best show trophy.
The show was impressive with a flow of spectators, 300 cars, sound systems, vendors and tents in place in the midst of information, introductions and narration. About ninety judges had participated; many of them were familiar names. It was a great entertainment for car enthusiasts. The plans are already in progress for the 18th annual Amelia Island Concours which is slated to be conducted on March 8-10, 2013 at the summer beach. If you are a car freak, make sure you land up there next spring!
