Wonderful sponsors help make our show possible, as well as the hundreds of volunteers, and of course you, the Italian car owners who share their beautiful automobiles that make the day one for the memory book. The 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Tour de France won Best of Show.

Just before the lunch break Matt Stone interviewed Tonino Lamborghini. The conversation was one for the ages. Reflective, insightful, entertaining and humorous, Tonino was hitting on all cylinders and had the audience roaring with laughter. Shortly after lunch the 2016 edition of the award winning Concorso Italiano Fashion Show kicked off. Our Social Media Manager again “impressed” with his… noticeable wardrobe choice followed by models showcasing spectacular high end brands.
