La Celebrazione! The Italians are coming!
The highlight of the 37th annual Historic Festival's Sunday in the Park Concours will be the Italian Masterpiece collection. Owners of some of the most interesting and fantastic Italian marques have been invited to display their vehicles on Sunday, Sept. 1, 2019 at Lime Rock Park.
The field of Italian-made machines will be anchored by 21 Ferraris, including several of exceptional significance.
• Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, a boutique manufacturer of exotic high-performance racing and road cars, will bring the third Ferrari built, the first sold commercially and oldest surviving vehicle: the 1947 Ferrari 159 Spyder Corsa, winner of the 1947 Turing Grand Prix.
• Three examples of the classic GTO, including the 1959 250GTO Berlinetta.
• Several models of Testa Rosa and many examples of the 250/330/400 GTs.
• A 2008 599 GTB Fiorano.
"This will undoubtedly be one of the best displays of classic Ferraris ever assembled in one place," said Frank Taylor, coordinator for Sunday in the Park.
Not to be outdone, expect to see 14 Alfa Romeos, including three classic racing Monza 8C’s such as the 1932 2300 Monza 8C at the Colorado Grand and another owned by famed racer Tazio Nuvolari. Additional Alfa's include a 1923 RL Targa Floria, several examples of the classic mid-60 Alfa Romeo convertibles, and a 1964 Alfa Romeo Tubolare Zagato from our Honored Collectors BZ and Michael Schwartz.
But that's not all. There's a wide range of Italian marques poised to sparkle in the sun during the Sunday in the Park Concours. Spectators will be immersed in examples of Lamboghini, DeTomaso, Lancia, Osca, Siata, Stanguelini, Maserati (such as 1956 Maserati A6G Zagato!), and a 1953 Moretti Barchetta belonging to the Honored Collectors.
