Concours D'Elegance Ferrari 458

The Concours D'Elegance is South Florida's premier exotic car show. I had a chance this weekend to take in some sun and really hot automobiles at the Boca Raton Resort and Club and shoot photos of some of my favorites.

Here we have a Ferrari 458. Mid-engined, 4.5 liter V8.

Classic Delahaye Type 135 Roadster

The Delahaye Type 135 was a French roadster-style car that was produced in the 1930s thru the early 1950s. This one is a real beauty.

AMG SLS

This AMG SLS is in white, rather than the classic silver you normally see it in. This particular model was Steve Jobs' car of choice, he actually leased a new one every six months so he didn't have to put license plates on.

Here's a Mercedes AMG 2-seater in the most tasteless paint job I've ever seen. I love it.

1928 Rolls-Royce Phantom Torpedo

If I had to pick a favorite car from the show, it would be this 1928 Rolls-Royce Phantom Torpedo. This gleaming steel monster has a massive V12 engine that sounds like an airplane when it runs. Many of these Rolls-Royce cars were one-offs for an extremely priveleged clientele and every single one was hand built.

1958 Ford Edsel Cockpit

The Ford Edsel was a commercial failure but is sought out by collectors for its distinctive look and also its forward-thinking technology. As you can see in the cockpit view it had a pushbutton transmission, a technology that isn't even in major use today.
