You may have heard of Concours d’Elegance in Lake Como and Pebble Beach…and now it’s little Sydney’s turn.
The Sydney Harbour Concours d’Elegance will be in its inaugural year for 2019 and it will faithfully coincide with the centenary of famed Italian coachbuilder Zagato, as well as the centenaries of Alvis, and Bentley.
The event which is supported by Ferrari will feature a stellar line up of precious automobiles from both the past and present era. The standouts to see includes the first Bentley to run at Le Mans in 1923 and the brand new British-built Australian race car, the Brabham BT62.
History fiends won’t be disappointed either with line up which includes the 1904 De Dion Bouton Populaire, a 1930 Rolls-Royce Phantom II, 1937 Alvis 4.3 litre by Vanden Plas, 1955 Porsche Pre A Speedster, 1960 Ferrari 250 Pinin Farina coupe, 1962 Aston Martin DB4 Vantage, 1963 Ferrari 250 GTE and many more.
Mini will also be celebrating its 60th anniversary at the event so it’s a packed schedule which will kick off at the beautiful grounds of Lindesay mansion, a National Trust property with uninterrupted views of the harbour from the 7th to the 9th of March.
Whilst the ability to rival its European and American cousins might be a bit difficult, the organisers have a simple goal for the Sydney Harbour Concours d’Elegance – to establish a motoring event of international sophistication and style the likes of which this country has never seen.
Sydney Harbour Concours d’Elegance is an invitation only motoring event of international sophistication which D’Marge is proud to be a media partner of. For enquiries and tickets drop by their website.
