The ultimate car show: Greenwich Concours d’Elegance returns June 1-3 2018

On June 1st through June 3rd 2018 the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance returns to Roger Sherman Baldwin park in Greenwich Ct.   Recognized as one of the premier concours in the country and the largest in the Northeast, Greenwich is unique in that it is two concours back to back. Saturday is the Concours Americana for American cars and motorcycles, while Sunday is the Concours International for imported marques.  The setting is perfect to admire these classic automobiles as the park is set by beautiful Greenwich Harbor.

2018 will be a celebration of Briggs Cunningham at the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance with a special display of Cunningham production cars and team race cars. As a special tribute, we will have all of the Cunningham cars displayed along the waterfront on both Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday will also feature cars of the legendary John Fitch, along with competition motorcycles and a circle of supercars, both American and foreign. With a Saturday ticket, you can also preview the cars for auction in the Bonhams tent. Be sure to join us Saturday night for the gala party at the Greenwich Delamar Hotel, with a sumptuous buffet overlooking the luxurious yachts.  If you want to participate in the Bonhams auction on Sunday you need to register in advance with Bonhams and I would advise visiting their website for more details.

On Sunday, there will have a special display of Jaguars, with a focus on the prewar SS Cars, prewar MGs, and competition motorcycles. Bonhams has been selected by the estate of Carroll Shelby to offer for sale two dozen cars from the personal collection of the late racer and designer. The Bonhams auction begins at noon on Sunday and requires a separate admission – or you can watch through the open side of the tent.

Over the concours weekend David Hobbs will be signing his memoir, Hobbo, in the Road & Track tent. Wayne Carini will be filming an episode of Chasing Classic Cars and hosting a presentation of special cars on the field.

Surrounding the show field will be displays of new cars, including BMW, Cadillac, Lincoln, Tesla, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lexus, Acura, Karma, Genovation and Miller Motorcars – with Ferrari, Bugatti, Pagani, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, McLaren, Bentley and Maserati. There are even opportunities to test drive some of these amazing new vehicles. There will also be fantastic  yachts displayed at the Delamar Hotel docks right across from the park.

There will be a limited number of VIP tickets which include early entry to the Concours, breakfast and lunch with the car owners and judges, entrance to the Bonhams Cocktail Reception on Friday night, lapel pin, poster and a VIP lanyard.
