2018 Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance takes over Zamperini Field

By October 9, 2018 No Comments

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 2018 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 new Ferrari Portofino and the GTC4Lusso T, as well as a stunning 1966 Ferrari 330 GTC 2+2 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 Mattioli Automotive group and Ferrari South Bay, Giacamo Mattiolli.  We were privileged to have Mr. Mattioli present awards for the two Ferrari classes on behalf of Ferrari South Bay. Awards were distributed as follows:
