Greenwich Concours 2


Last weekend, the hedgefund capital of America welcomed 250 classic and exotic cars for their 12th annual Concours d’Elegance which was spread out over two days.

The first was devoted to American Cars and offered a good variety of muscle and chrome-laden flair. Highlights included a pair of Packard concepts and the sole Lincoln Indianapolis show car. Among these, Judge Joseph Cassini took the top honors for his stunning Packard LeBaron Sport Coupe.

Sunday was focused on European marques and specifically the best that Italy, Germany and France produced. On hand were a couple of specially bodied Aston Martins which were a pleasant and unexpected surprise. At the end of the day, a sweeping Bugatti was an easy pick for best of show.

Christies also held an auction on the second day which fetched a remarkable $852 500 USD for an unrestored ‘barn find’ Type 57 Atalante. It will no doubt be better than new the next time we run into it.

Richard Owen brings us all that Greenwich had to offer in our 600 shot gallery. Over the next week we will try to catch up to three other events that were happening around the world at the same time.
