The Concorso Ferrari 2018 was held Sunday, April 22 in Old Town Pasadena, California. This marked the 11th year that the Ferrari Club of America — Southwest Region organized and hosted their annual signature event. Also known as Ferraris on Colorado, the event showcased over 140 of the finest vintage and contemporary Ferraris — which lined three blocks of Colorado Boulevard from Pasadena Avenue to Raymond Avenue. The mostly all-Ferrari show is unique in that it is free and open to the public.
The beautiful Sunday morning was unusually warm for April, but that didn’t keep the owners and aficionados away, as Maranello’s finest Italian machines lined Colorado Boulevard. In addition to the beautiful, Italian sports cars, those who attended had access to a vast array of sponsors and vendors, displaying sports and luxury cars, accessories, apparel and of course — the Old Town Pasadena retailers and eateries that lined the boulevard.
Ferraris manufactured in 2007 and earlier were eligible for judging and awards during the Concorso. Judging by a panel of 30 Ferrari experts, followed FCA national guidelines IAC/PFA (International Advisory Council for the Preservation of Ferrari Automobiles) and awards presentations for the 10 classes, which were made before the conclusion of the event.
The Best in Show award at Concorso Ferrari 2018 was presented to the 1963 Ferrari 400 Superamerica, owned by Donnie Crevier. Other awards included Best Car on the Street — 1950 166 MM/195 S Berlinetta Le Mans owned by Michael Leventhal; Best Exotic on the Street — 2018 LaFerrari Aperta owned by Tony Shooshani and the Pirelli People’s Choice Award — 1959 250 Testa Rossa (replica) owned by Peter Giacobbi.
