The Marques D’Elegance is a weekend-long series of car events culminating in a show at Paletta Mansion. As i wrote in my review of last year’s show, it is well worth the drive to experience the VIP feel of this show.
During my drive, i came across two Ferraris and a Lamborghini…i guessed correctly that they were heading to the show and let them lead the way.
I got a great parking spot, just a few feet away from the show entrance and behind a Porsche Macan
Some nice cars on the short walk to the show entrance
I ran into some friends who informed me there was a Renntech modified Mercedes-McLaren SLR so i knew that would be my first stop. But first i registered and got a passport to the show, which i could get stamped at the various stands for special offers.
A different crowd than the ladies in my recent car show reviews lol
Ok, on to the Renntech!
Too extreme? No problem..they had a “regular” SLR as well lol
One of my favourite cars at last year’s show was a matte black G63…and although my own car is matte grey, i think the G63 looked better in the black
Right next to the G63 was this beautiful E63 wagon
In addition to these AMGs at the Mercedes display, i found a gorgeous C63 507 on the main lawn
Ok on to Porsche..I have seen Pfaff’s race prepped GT3 several times but i must say it never looked so good as out in the open on the lawn
Incredible old school RS
Love the Martini Racing livery
Lots of 911s
I was happy to see a Countach at last year’s show..this year there were two among the selection of Lambos
Aventador, if you prefer newer Lamborghinis
On to the main lawn, predominantly Ferrari
No 599XX this year but this Speciale and Dinos almost make up for it…almost
My favourite Aston Martin, the V12 Vantage S in white
The Rolls we saw pulling in earlier
From James Bond, the BMW Z8
And from Mission Impossible, the new i8
M5 and M3
Real AC Cobra and some new Gts
Last but not least, Lexus…who were using 3D printers to create lexus logos!
