Over $770 million worth of Ferrari cars were gathered in one place.
The 32nd annual Palm Beach Cavallino Classic took place in late January, and the assemblage of machinery looked like a blooming flower bed of Ferrari red, yellow, blue, and silver.
Only the very best examples of Enzo’s machines from the brand’s racing and road car history get to attend the Cavallino Classic. This year’s event included 125 Ferraris competing for three major awards: Overall Outstanding Ferrari Granturismo, Overall Outstanding Ferrari Competition Car, and Overall Outstanding Ferrari with “Red Book” Certification. The latter award is for cars with Ferrari’s official certification they’re original and have the same specs as when they left the factory. The rest of the field is gunning for a Platinum Award, which is given to any Ferrari that scores 97 or more from the event’s diligent judges.
This year’s Cavallino Classic began with a track day on Thursday at The Concours Club in Miami. Any owner that wished could "stretch the wheels" of their classic, incredibly valuable Ferrari on the challenging track and watch others do the same. On Friday, the field reassembled for a Tour d’Eleganza around the area’s best driving roads.
The weekend was reserved for the concours d’elegance where all 125 Ferraris gathered on the grounds of The Breakers resort in Palm Beach, Florida for judging. The three best of show winners are truly stunning examples from the brand’s history.
Overall Outstanding Ferrari Granturismo went to a 1956 Ferrari 410 Superamerica owned by Anne Brockinton Lee (above, top), making her the first woman to achieve this at a Cavallino Classic. Meanwhile, a 1953 Ferrari 250 MM Berlinetta Pinin Farina (above, lower left) was chosen as the Overall Outstanding Ferrari Competition car and Overall Outstanding Ferrari with the “Red Book” certification was given to a 1971 Ferrari 512 M (above, lower right).
