Despite being only five years old, the Boca Raton Concours d’ Elegance in Florida has become a prime event for auto enthusiasts because of the number of first edition production cars being auctioned off there. In recent years, the Concours has been able to sell off first production models of the 2010 Audi R8 V10 5.2 FSI Quattro , the 2010 Ferrari California , the 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia , the 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG , and the 2011 Audi R8 V10 Spyder , to name a few.
This year, two new highly anticipated supercars are scheduled to be in attendance at the Boca Raton Concours and, as has been the custom for this event, the first edition models of these two cars are going to be up for auction. Prepare to open your checkbooks, gentlemen. The 2012 Ferrari FF and the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster are coming to Boca Raton.
The event is scheduled to kick off next weekend, February 26th, 2011, where it is expected to draw even more attendees, most of whom are looking to grab a piece of the first-edition models of the two aforementioned machines. If these people fail to scoop the big kahunas, they can still opt for some awesome “consolation” prices, including the first Audi R8 GT in the US, the first of only 30 Mercedes CLS63 AMG ‘C’ Limited Edition vehicles, and, if you’re a fan of Jay Leno, an opportunity to take a tour of his world-famous garage.
