As the name suggests, this concours d’elegance focuses on Italian machinery. This year’s edition is held at a brand new location; the Marina Airport, some 10 miles north of Monterey. In addition to the annual ‘Celebration of Italian Style’, the 2008 edition celebrates ’45 years of Lamborghini’, ’40 years of the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona’ and the ‘Creations of Designer Marcello Gandini’. One of the absolute highlights will no doubt the presence of the very first Lamborghini, the unique 350 GTV.
In addition to the cars displayed on the show field, there are numerous corrals for interesting Italian and non-Italian vehicles. This event is highly recommended for fans of exotic machinery and supercars.
