GREENWICH, Conn. – The Greenwich Concours d’Elegance hosts its annual Concours Americana on Saturday and Concours International on Sunday, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. both days, at the Roger Sherman Baldwin Park, 100 Arch St., Greenwich.
More than 100 automobiles and motorcycles spanning more than 100 years will grace the show field each day. Concours Americana on Saturday will mark the 50th anniversary of Ford’s 1966 victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a circle of Ford performance cars; James Glickenhaus’ 1967 Ford GT40 Mk IV that Mark Donohue and Bruce McLaren steered to fourth place at Le Mans that year headlines the group. Saturday’s show will also highlight Brass Era cars, prewar classics, rare muscle cars, incredible Corvettes, fabulous 1950s cars and early Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
BMW’s 100th anniversary will be celebrated at Sunday’s Concours International with a display of historic examples, including a rare 1937 BMW 328 MM Bügelfalte.
Ferraris starring on Sunday include a 1961 Ferrari 400 Superamerica Cabriolet, 24 Hours of Le Mans-winning 1961 Ferrari 250 TRi/61 Spider, and 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Tour de France Coupe fresh from receiving a platinum award at this year’s Cavallino Classic.
“Win on Sunday, sell on Monday” was the motivation for the production of homologation specials, street-legal racecars sold in limited quantities by manufacturers to qualify for competition; significant examples, such as a 1975 Lancia Stratos Coupe, 1980 Porsche 924 Carrera GTS Clubsport, 1990 BMW M3 Sport Evolution and 1991 Mercedes-Benz 190 Evo2 Sedan, will also power Sunday’s lineup.
Bonhams will host its Greenwich Concours Auction on Sunday at noon. Viewings are Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m.-noon. A Concours ticket and purchase of a Bonhams sale catalog are required for admission to the Sunday auction.
The automobile sponsors' pavilions will surround the field, providing a chance to look over the latest high-end cars, with many offering ride-and-drive opportunities leaving from the Concours site. A display of yachts will also line the docks.
The Greenwich Concours supports AmeriCares, the international relief organization.
