The La Jolla Concours d’Elegance will be returning to the stunning shores of La Jolla, California, Saturday, April 7th through Sunday, April 8th, 2018. As a tradition, the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance chooses a featured marque each year to set the theme of this prestigious automotive event. This year, we are proud to announce Lincoln as the honored marquee for the 14th Annual Concours d’Elegance. Having started as a small company that supplied Liberty aircraft engines for the Army during WWI, Lincoln has had a deep-rooted evolution to becoming a world-renowned luxury automobile manufacturer. The 1930’s marked a monumental turning point of Lincoln’s rise in the luxury market with the launch of its classic V12 engine models. Setting the path to sales success with the release of the Lincoln-Zephyr and introducing an icon of automotive design, the Lincoln Continental, the 1930’s designs are forever synonymous with Lincoln’s tasteful elegance. Lincoln vehicles are not only popular antiques of the decade, but also an integral part of US automotive history. Lincoln automobiles were prime examples in their day of American-made cars at their finest and we are pleased to present the finest specimens of these painstakingly preserved and restored automobiles in 2018.
The 14th Annual La Jolla Concours d’Elegance, in addition to Lincoln, will also showcase some of the most exquisite automobile displays in the world. Earning the reputation as one of the finest internationally renowned classic automobile showcases in the United States, the La Jolla Concours continues to attract discerning car enthusiasts from around the globe. The La Jolla Concours d’Elegance is not only an incredible weekend of prestigious automotive events; it is also an opportunity to experience the chic allure of La Jolla’s Avenues, which exudes first class hospitality, magnificent boutiques and world-class cuisine.
