2010 Concours d ' Elegance in Greenwich Connecticut
GREENWICH CONCOURS d'ELEGANCE
GREAT CLASSIC CARS, YACHTS, AND MOTORCYCLES
Greenwich is unique, in that it is actually two concours, back-to-back. Saturday's Concours Americana is exclusively for American makes, while Sunday's Concours International is exclusively for imported marques. This year, Founders and co-chairs Bruce and Genia Wennerstrom will include an extraordinary new attraction, a three-day regatta of classic former America's Cup 12-Meter yachts! Held in association with the 12-M Yacht Development Foundation, these magnificent craft will be competing for the Greenwich Concours Cup .
Concours visitors will be able to view the yachts up close, and there will also be limited opportunities to sail on them. The cars exhibited include many of the pre-WWI brass-era, the grand classics of the late 1920s and '30s, and such storied marques as Rolls-Royce, Marmon, Pierce Arrow, Lagonda, Cord, Auburn, Packard, Alfa Romeo, and Maserati; and post-WWII cars with big fins, and outsized engines. There will be sports and competition cars exhibited each day, including two historic Indy 500 race cars, with a special circle of "Contemporary Supercars." Classic motorcycles will also be on display.
There are galleries of automotive art, a book alley, demonstrations, as well as displays of the very latest new cars such as Mercedes-Benz, Maybach, Lexus, Jaguar, Volvo, Mini, Land Rover, Smart, Tesla, Bentley, Ferrari, Maserati, Aston Martin, and Bugatti. There will even be some Soap Box race cars.
