The Concours d’Elegance, A Beverly Hills Tradition

Dubbed one of the “300 Unmissable Events” of the world, the Concours d’Elegance is a car show–Beverly Hills Style.  Staged on famed Rodeo Drive on Father’s Day, hundreds of car aficionados come out to celebrate some of the worlds most sought after cars and have been doing so for 20 years.  The event is free and open to the public and the public did come out in droves!  The Concours d’Elegance is the largest public event held annually in Beverly Hills.  A unique mix of guests, including car collectors, families and international visitors and residents from Beverly Hills and the Westside came out to celebrate Father’s Day in ambiance only Beverly Hills can provide.

From the hottest cars on the market today to the most rare vehicles of yesteryear, these cars are beauties.  I was especially enchanted by the McLaren 720s from Auto Gallery of Beverly Hills.

The amazing cars on display included the 2015 Ford Mustang, a 1927 Rolls-Royce Phantom and a McLaren 12C. The coveted automobiles are displayed along iconic Rodeo Drive for auto-enthusiasts of all kinds to admire up close.  Here’s a few of my pics!
