The 8th annual Greystone Mansion Concours d’Elegance in Beverly Hills broke attendance and participation records on May 7 as thousands of automobile enthusiasts viewed 125 vintage automobiles on display.
Best of Show Concours d’Elegance honors went to Stan Lucas for his 1929 Lincoln Aero-Phaeton. Best of Show Concours de Sport recognition was awarded to A&A Premier Classics for its 1954 Ferrari 500 Mondial. The Concours honored Ferrari’s 70th anniversary and Lincoln’s 100th anniversary. Beverly Hills Mayor Lili Bosse selected a 1935 Adler Trumpf, Junior Sports Roadster for the Mayor’s Choice honors.
“I was drawn to the classic style yet sporty feel of the Adler,” Bosse said. “It felt chic and elegant and I was thrilled to learn it is owned by a woman.”
Thousands of auto aficionados gathered at Greystone Mansion for the elegant event, which also featured unique motorcycles. Eugene Garcin’s 1934 Cotton was named Best Vintage Motorcycle.
“The Greystone Mansion Concours is unlike most other automotive events because it offers something for everyone. Each year, the show highlights a variety of remarkable cars that are rarely seen by the public and features a completely new field of entries annually,” Concours director Cindy Brynan said. “This is the eighth year of the event, and [it] was easily our most successful ever. We had the honor of receiving the most applications we have ever had for potential exhibitors. We ultimately showcased 125 world class cars and 10 motorcycles.”
Greystone Mansion Concours d’Elegance Signature Awards are designed by local artist Richard Pietruska. The awards were given in two Best of Show categories and 15 Best of Class categories.
Food and beverages were provided by Tito’s, Stella Artois and Asombroso Fine Tequila, and The Peninsula Hotel served dessert. Guests also enjoyed lectures and tours of the Greystone Mansion.
