Amelia Concours 2013: Morning Glory

2013 03 Concours - Thur 01

Today marked the first day of the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance and we didn’t waste any time getting to business.  The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island has officially been invaded by some of the most beautiful and expensive cars you’ll ever see – a veritable feast for the eyes of any petrol-head.   This year, we arrive just before sunrise to photograph the cars with that dramatic dawn lighting, as with the photo above.

We also spent much of the day with the folks from McLaren, documenting their static display and test drives, but more on that in a coming post.  The star of the show this year is the great Ford GT-40 racers of the 1960s.  Look familiar?  Yes my friends, it is cars like these that inspired the animated cartoon of old, Speed Racer.  I’ve got an early morning tomorrow, so I’ll leaver it here for the time bring.  Be sure to check back over the next several days for the latest from the Concours, and as always, enjoy!
