Exhibition of extravagant cars Concours D’Elegance. This is a must see!October 29, 2019
A new event in the automotive world, called The Las Vegas Concours d’Elegance (an elegance contest in Las Vegas), first took place between October 25 and 28. The exhibition featured not only classic cars, but also modern vehicles and even some concepts. On Sunday, the winners of this Helene Award event were announced.
A total of 130 cars were selected for display at DragonRidge Country Club, which took place last Friday. These cars were divided into 25 classes, such as “American pre-war” and “Japanese post-war”, etc. Then the judges evaluated the contestants. The competition involved cars with different ages and with different types. For example, a rare Superformance Cobra Daytona Coupe by Peter Brock, a 1933 Lincoln Ka Rumble Seat Roadster, a white 1967 Corvette Stingray Roadster and a white Acura NSX 2017 were exhibited in an elegance competition.
The presence of such a large number of exclusive vehicles in the first year of this event is the guarantee that this exhibition will become popular in the future.
The Helene Award is named after Helen Rother, the first woman to design cars at the American concern General Motors – she began working in 1943. This fact sets a different tone for the whole event, demonstrating that automotive achievements are available for both women and men. The jury also highlighted some personalities in the following categories: design innovations, industry achievements, technical achievements, collectors, photography, publishing, etc.
For the Tour d’Elegance, the organizers blocked one of the main roads in Las Vegas. Car fans lined up on either side of what is arguably the most famous street in the world to catch a glimpse of many amazing vehicles.
