The Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance will celebrate “The Art of Italian Motoring” on June 19, 2011. The annual event will take place as the country of Italy marks an important milestone with the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy. In celebration, Rodeo Drive will pay tribute to some of the most famous names in Italian design and lifestyle.
“The annual Father’s Day event will highlight a world class combination of automobiles, motorcycles and designers featuring Italian makes and models,” says Bruce Meyer, Chairman of the annual event. “We hope to curate the best selection of Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Fiat, Lamborghini, Lancia and Maseratis from Southern California and the Western United States for this year’s tribute to Italy.”
Italian motorcycles are also invited to show including Ducati, Lambretta, Moto Guzzi and Vespa. The event will also feature Italy’s design companies, including vehicles designed by Bertoni, Frua, Ghia, Michelotti, Pininfarina, Touring and Zagato.
The Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance 2011 is a display of luxury automobiles set against the backdrop of world class Rodeo Drive boutiques. Celebrating the unique relationship between the automotive, fashion and entertainment industries, the car show is free and open to the public and presented by the Rodeo Drive Committee.
