The first-ever 2010 Greystone Mansion Concours d’Elegance will blend in perfectly in upscale Beverly Hills, California.
This year’s Greystone Mansion Concours d’Elegance is the first to be held at the esteemed Doheny Family estate, a historic Los Angeles landmark that has been featured in numerous Hollywood films. Showgoers will need to purchase admission tickets at $100 apiece but will be treated to four exceptionally rare collector cars, among other posh luxuries including gourmet food with an open bar and an automobilia marketplace.
The first two cars were the star attractions of auction house Gooding & Company’s last two events: the emerald green 1956 Nash Rambler “Palm Beach” Coupe Special with Pininfarina’s 1950s jet-age styling, and a 1959 Ferrari 250GT Series 1 Cabriolet, also styled by Pininfarina. The 250GT sold for $2.145 million in Scottsdale this January.
Two significant pre-war drop-tops will also be exhibited at the Beverly Hills Concours d’Elegance. The first is a 1938 Talbot Darracq T23 Drop Head Coupe, one of only two known to be bodied by French coachbuilder Figoni & Falaschi. The second is a 1927 Bentley 6 1/2 Litre Tourer by Vanden Plas provided from Gooding & Company founder and president’s David Gooding’s private collection (not pictured). The Talbot will be available for discrete sale.
“We’re delighted to support our neighboring friends with the launch of their first Greystone Mansion Concours d’Elegance,” said Gooding. “The historic Doheny house is a stunning site for people of all ages to visit and will surely provide a beautiful and special setting for this new Concours in Beverly Hills.”
More than 100 classic cars and motorcycles will be on Doheny Family grounds. The Greystone Mansion Concours d’Elegance is scheduled for April 11 in Beverly Hills, California.
