Entries to the Concours are now officially closed, but exceptional new entrants may still be considered. A 1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider, 1949 Riley 105 Transformable Coupe and 1973 Porsche 911 RSR 2.8 are among the notable entrants.
1959 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider – Entered in the ‘Wind in your hair’ class, this California is one of the first of its type in the U.S., unusually fitted with velocity stacks and cold airbox to racing specification. Featured in the September 1959 issue of ‘Sports Car Illustrated’ as one of ‘The Fabulous Cars of Enzo Ferrari’, the 250 has been obsessively restored to its original Modena factory gate condition. Boasting a rich history and many interesting tales from its owners, this rare and original piece of Scaglietti history will be a big Concours attraction.
