The 2010 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance was held on the fairways of the Golf Club of Amelia Island adjacent to The Ritz-Carlton on Amelia Island, Florida. With more than 250 cars in attendance, many deserving cars were not honored with a Best in Class or Amelia (close to winning) awards in their respective class. However, that doesn’t mean they weren’t noticed or appreciated by the rest of the crowd.
In addition to the previously profiled Best in Show, Concours d’Elegance and Concours de Sport winners, the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance also presents the Corporate Awards, which as the name implies are given by various corporate entities to their favorite cars.
Awards range from People’s Choice to the Car with the Most Audacious Exterior to the Best Car in Which to Tour Napa Valley. While the awards are certainly less competitive than the Best in Show or Class Awards, many are still very cherished by the entrants.
Those in attendance vote for the “People’s Choice” award, which was awarded to a 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith from the North Collection. The Wraith, re-bodied with Peruvian Walnut and composite materials, was not only the favorite of the masses but the squirrels as well.
