Amelia Island Concours
March 5 - March 8
The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance is an automotive charitable event held each year during the second weekend in March at The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island in Amelia Island, Florida.
A Concours d’elegance (French, literally “a competition of elegance”) is according to The New York Times writer Keith Martin like a “beauty pageant for rare and elegant cars”. Each entry is rated for authenticity, function, history, style, and quality of restoration by a team of judges that includes specialists for each car type. A perfect score is 100, but any imperfection, no matter how slight, requires a fractional point deduction. Classes are arranged by type, marque, coachbuilder, country of origin, or time period.
