A new event is in the works for the Sunday before the Arizona Auction Week. The inaugural Arizona Concours d’Elegance is scheduled to be held January 12, 2014 at the Arizona Biltmore Resort and Hotel in Phoenix.
The Arizona Concours aims to kick-off auction week with a premium event modeled after the very best events, as in the Pebble Beach Concours, Concorso Villa d’Este and others. Organizers expect 75 automobiles to compete in classes that range from vintage and classic to sports, racing and exotics. This will be a judged event, with participants vying for Best in Class and Best of Show.
The automobiles will be displayed on the grass of the Squaw Peak Lawn within the art deco Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired Arizona Biltmore, which serves as host and partner of the Arizona Concours d’Elegance. (The same venue annually plays host to the RM Auctions event during Auction Week).
The Arizona Concours d’Elegance is a 501(c)(3) celebrating classic automobile engineering and style while supporting local charities. Proceeds from the Concours event will benefit local charity.
Tickets for the Arizona Concours d’Elegance will go on sale to the public. For more information and to be placed on the mailing list, visit ArizonaConcours.com.
