Sightings – Greenwich Concours d’Elegance

-Scott Villeneuve & Christopher Little

The Greenwich Concours d’Elegance has a little something for everyone.  Shopping on scenic Greenwich Avenue, lunch at l’Escale restaurant on the harbor, a Bonhams classic car auction, and of course the show itself.  The event lasts the entire weekend, spanning American classics and international imports.  It really is a sight to behold for enthusiasts of all ages.  It goes without saying that such a display of wealth and automotive enthusiasm draws exotic cars out of the woodwork.  As enthusiasts, we have a good day if we spot a single exotic.  In Greenwich, however, we literally had a field day.  Here’s a sampling of what we caught up with.

Audi R8

Not your average parking garage

We arrived in the BMW M3, and we parked next to this for an excellent photo.

Ferrari 16M

Nice day for no roof

After this turn you head down into a tunnel, great sounds were made from this gentleman.

Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster

Sexy and sophisticated

Seriously an SLS AMG roadster in white?  Classy color combination, and fantastic wheels.

Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera & Ferrari 458 Italia

The Italian Section

The ultimate decision in which one would you choose, for the enthusiasts keep in mind the Superleggera was a manual.

Double Trouble

Those carbon ceramics on the 458 Italia though, look damn good.

Aston Martin DBS Carbon Black Edition

Special Edition

As I hide behind the tree and update our Twitter feed, this amazing DBS takes all eyes off me.

McLaren MP4-12C

Fax Machine

Have you ever heard one of these?  If you haven’t you have not lived your car enthusiast life to the fullest, yet.

Ford GT

VIP parking

It’s a Ford GT, it’s the right color/stripe combination, enough said.

Mercedes SLR McLaren Roadster & Porsche 911 GT3 RS

A twofer

Seeing an SLR McLaren roadster is rare enough, let alone seeing it alongside a GT3RS with blue wheels and stripe.

Ferrari FF

Evil smile

The FF’s smiley face still doesn’t detract from its amazing exhaust note, interesting 4-wheel-drive  configuration, and rather hefty price tag.

Nissan Skyline GT-R

R34

Have you seen an R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R in the wild before?  This was a first for us.

Bonus – Mercedes SLS – matte finish

Matte in the wild

This was the only matte paint on a car at the entire show.  That’s not a bad thing.
