Greystone Mansion Concours d'Elegance: Never Gets Old

Beverly Hills CA, May 4 2014 - The annual Greystone Mansion Concours d’Elegance event is one of those top shelf one-of-a-kind experiences that never gets old, as is the subject matter.  The iconic Greystone Mansion is the perfect starting point for celebrating perfect cars on a perfect Sunday in Beverly Hills.

This year’s honorees were the Porsche Speedster’s 60th, Mustang’s 50th, and notable Italian cars. A special Centennial Class was added featuring cars built 1914 or earlier to honor Beverly Hills’ 100th anniversary. In all more than 175 automobiles and motorcycles in 16 classes graced the grounds.

Founding sponsors Gooding & Company and the Petersen Automotive always come to the party with the goods. Gooding moved up to the parking lot this year, with a Shelby Cobra, 1964 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Litre Roadster, 1968 Ferrari Dino 206 GT, 1956 Lancia Aurelia B24S Spider America and Ferrari 275 GTB and Petersen’s showed off a 1912 Dedion-Bouton DE-2 and 1929 Dupont Model G.

This year the whole mansion was open for lifestyle gazing as well. Top all off with gourmet grazing, Stella Artois beer and/or Asombroso tequila margarita and you have a day worthy of self-indulgence.

The Greystone Concours d’Elegance is produced by the City of Beverly Hills with the support of Friends of Greystone and is an annual fundraiser for the ongoing restoration and preservation of Greystone. Next year's concours event - May 3 2015!
