This year’s Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance was a big hit. The many highlights were this year’s honorary chairman Bobby Rahal and all of the participating timeless vehicles found on the Ritz-Carlton lawn.
Some of the more notable modern day vehicles in the luxury and exotic realm were from Mereceds-Benz, BMW, Porsche, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Maserati, Ferrari, Rolls Royce, Cadillac, Infiniti and Bentley. A wide array of classics dominated the field from the likings of Bugatti, Duesenberg, Rolls Royce, Allard, Cadillac, Lincoln, Chevrolet, Kurtis, Packard, Plymouth, Tucker and several others totaling to over 300 cars in all.
For 2011 the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance benefited Community Hospice of Northeast Florida Inc. Other charities and vendors were on hand to commemorate this truly remarkable event.
To round out the filed, the new Bugatti Veyron Super Sport made an appearance near the entrance of the Ritz hotel. Onlookers were in for a treat as this is touted as the world’s fastest production car clocked at an astonishing 268 miles per hour. We will continue to look forward to great car events throughout the year as the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance remains to be one of the more prestigious venues to date. Enjoy the plentiful images that we were able to capture below.
