Monterey, August 13, 2010

Friday is concours day once again! On the schedule the Concorso Italiano at the Laguna Seca Golf Ranch and The Quail at Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley.

Concorso Italiano always attracts a vast number of Italian cars, plus there is an area set aside for non- Italian exotica. The Ferrari element of the event is usually the largest, and this year was no exception with over 350 examples on display, looking like a predominantly red carpet flowing down the fairway. They were predominantly modern examples, although the sixties era was well represented with some nice 250 GTs and 275 GTBs. At the modern end of the spectrum the
2008 Ferrari Special Project Number 1 was displayed.

Elsewhere on the field the Lamborghini display was pretty impressive, with the unique Muira spider and the first Countach, not to mention the lurid array of paintwork on the many Murcielagos and Gallardos present, including one with a wild graphic design all over, even extending to the glass! The selection of Maseratis was also impressive, with numerous sixties examples.
