The City of Beverly Hills held its third annual Greystone Mansion Concours d’Elegance at the historic former Doheny Family Estate on May 6. Appealing to car and motorcycle collectors as well as socialites and automotive professionals, the exhibition has been designated as an official “Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens” (FIVA) event.
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. guests viewed an impressive lineup of more than 150 vintage, classic and rare automobiles and motorcycles at the Doheny Family Estate, a 55-room Tudor-style mansion with formal English gardens and 16 acres of land. With more than $100 million worth of cars exhibited, the event is quickly becoming known for being one of the most prestigious concours events in the United States.
Highlights included a 1939 Bugatti Type 57C Coupe, a 1954 Alfa Romeo 1900 SS Zagato, a 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 ‘Daytona’, a 1930 Cadillac 452A and a 1925 Hispano Suiza H6B. The event also included lecture programming with four lectures by speakers such as Donald Osborne and contributing editor of Sports Car Market Magazine.
All of the proceeds from the event went toward the further restoration of Greystone, which is now working to have a seven-car garage restored to its original splendor. Greystone Mansion is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Concours attendees enjoyed live music, gourmet foods, an incredible selection of fine automobiles and even take a tour inside the Greystone Mansion where there were vendor displays and a group of bicycles from the late 1800s and the early 1900s.
The Auto Gallery is one of the premiere sponsors of this event and it was a spectacular day with our Fiat Abarth, Lamborghini Gallardo, 2012 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet, Audi R8 GT Spyder and McLaren MP4-12C on display.
