Updated with more images – The 21st annual Amelia Island Concours D’Elegance was held this past Sunday, March 13, 2016, on a lush fairway of the Golf Club of Amelia Island just in front of the seaside Ritz-Carlton hotel. Over 300 automobiles, racing cars and motorcycles made up an impressive display for both exhibitors and visitors to view during the day.

The Best of Show Concours d’Elegance award went to a Brewster-bodied 1930 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Sedanca de Ville owned by the Nethercutt Collection of Sylmar, California. A 1952 Pegaso Z-102 Cupola from the Louwman Museum in the Netherlands was the New York Auto Show car in 1953, one of two built and the only one to survive. The bright yellow car with red-orange sidewall tires won the Best of Show Concours de Sport. Both cars can be seen above in the lead image.
