New York City Concours d'Elegance

The New York City Concours d'Elegance - took take place in the Wollman Rink in Central Park from 30 September to 2 October 2005 - some of the world's most significant classic and vintage cars were on display.

Notable inclusions at this spectacular event attracting more then 30.000 enthusiasts from around the globe include the Jaguar D-type, the Jaguar C-type, a Ferrari 125 (the first ever sold), a 1949 Ferrari 166MM, a 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K Special Roadster, a 1957 Maserati 300S, an Aston Martin DB4 GT Bertone as well as a selection of Ferraris shown on a special Ferraris-only day.

The Jaguar C-type was designed expressly to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in its very first race in 1951 - and it did! This victory established Jaguar's racing tradition, that now stands at seven overall Le Mans wins.

The Jaguar C-Type XKC-009 displayed at the New York City Concours d'Elegance was one of the first two C-Type Jaguars imported to the U.S. in 1952. XKC-009 was delivered to the Jaguar dealer Max Hoffman on Park Avenue. This car was raced in major Eastern road races, while the other car (XKC-007) was raced on the West Coast by Californian Phil Hill.

The Jaguar D-type on display at the New York City Concours d'Elegance was the car which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1957, entered by the Scottish Ecurie Ecosse team.

The Aston Martin DB4 GT Bertone was first shown in 1961 at the Geneva and Turin Motor Shows and was an adaptation of the DB4 GT which had been raced by Stirling Moss at the 1959 International Trophy Meeting at Silverstone. It remains one of the last examples of what the art of coach-building was all about in the first 60 years of motoring.
