On Sunday, October 1, 2017, Zamperini Field transformed into a one-of-kind concours event! From the first Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance show held on the Ladera Linda playing fields, this annual event has been staged in distinctly different locations on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. This year, new ground was broken by pairing first-class, concours-level automobiles with vintage aircraft.
For more than two decades the Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance has been a world-class show of classic, vintage historical, and special-interest automobiles, providing funds for charitable and community purposes. Beneficiaries of the 2017 Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance include The Boys and Girls Club of the Los Angeles Harbor as well as the Western Museum of Flight.
Ferrari South Bay was proud to, once again, support the Palos Verdes Concours D’Elegance. This year, several vehicles from the Ferrari product line we on display, including the California T, 488 GTB, GTC4Lusso, as well as a stunning 1962 250 GT Cabriolet Series II from our newly introduced Collezione division. A special VIP Hospitality area was also erected for our clients and VIP guests to relax and mingle as they enjoyed a day of fine vintage automobiles and air crafts.
Joining us for this special occasion was the President of Ferrari South Bay and the rest of the Mattioli Automotive group, Giacamo Mattiolli. Mr. Mattioli was given the privilege to serve as the honorary presenter for the Italian Speed 1948-1976 Class with awards being distributed as follows:
1st – 1955 Alfa Romeo 1900 CSS, Tony Shooshani, Long Beach
2nd – 1973 Ferrari Dino 246 GT, Steve Kouracos, Los Angeles
3rd – 1963 Ferrari 400 Superamerica, Donnie Crevier, Costa Mesa
Right along side the Ferrari South Bay hospitality area were our friends with Race for RP, Nancy & Neil Langberg, who displayed a stunning new 488 Challenge race car in an effort to raise funds and awareness for Relapsing Polychondritis, a rare autoimmune disease.
