Concorso Italiano 2013

This August 16th at Laguna Seca Golf Ranch, Monterey California Concorso Italiano will once again open the traditional Monterey/Pebble Beach Weekend. Concorso Italiano’s unique format features more than 800 – 1000 vehicles of Italian origin, and its atmosphere is on the vehicles on display, conversations between people who love and appreciate them, and elements of Italian style such as fashion, food, music and art – all of this on the beautiful grounds of the Laguna Seca Golf Ranch. The Ranch was crafted by Robert Trent Jones Senior & Junior and nestled among the oak-studded hillsides of Monterey, providing breathtaking views of gorgeous Central Coast landscapes.

Take everything ever made in Italy, from fashion to Ferraris, sprinkle it with some red wine, slather it in sunshine, and top it with elegance and fun, and you have Concorso Italiano.

At this year’s Concorso Italiano we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo.

Bodies were hand-crafted by Intermeccanica in Italy, and then shipped to Oakland, California for assembly by Brown and Company. Apollos were sold in Hollywood and elsewhere to celebrities and entertainers, business leaders and professionals.

Only 88 of these high-performance exotics were ever made, approximately 50 survive, and 17 of them will be at Concorso Italiano this year. Amongst the beautiful cars on display will be the prototype and the Thorndyke Special. In addition to an excellent display of Apollos for enthusiasts to enjoy, most of the principals involved available for questions and discussions.
