Elegance and sophistication crowd the streets of Old Pasadena with the Ferrari Concorso 2010
If you have a taste for the finer things in life then you probably would appreciate an Italian display of sporting elegance demonstrated in a sophisticated museum format stretching from Pasadena Avenue to Raymond Avenue at Colorado Boulevard. Of course, we are talking about the Concorso Ferrari 2010 hosted by the Ferrari Club of America. This event is being held on May 16, 2010 and will feature over 100 of the finest vintage and contemporary Ferraris from all around the country on the original commercial center of Pasadena.
On this particular Sunday, Ferraris with a combined value of over $100 million will put their best hood forward to be ogled and gawked at by the public celebration being held in Old Pasadena. Ferraris such as the Pebble Beach winning 250 Series I Cab, a Cavallino winning Best of Show 250 SWB, the Agnelli 400SA from the Ferrari Museum, a Concorso Italiano Platinum winning 400SA, and one of six produced Vignale 225S. With that kind of lineup, one would bite their own arm off to take a look, but, thankfully, they won’t have to. This event is free to the public and visitors can not only admire the vehicles, but they can also talk with the owners, listen to on-site interviews, and, of course, bring in a little cash to Old Pasadena. There will also be judging and awards for the Ferrari models from 1999 or earlier.
