Ten Gorgeous Vintage Cars From the Amelia Island
Each spring, the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island hosts an intimate celebration of priceless cars, the Councours d'Elegance. This year’s event was the twentieth anniversary, and title sponsor Mercedes-Benz trotted out some high-wattage specimens from their museum collection in Stuttgart. (That included arguably one of the most legendary race cars in history: the 300 SLR that devoured the Mille Miglia in 1955, setting a record that hasn’t been beat since.) Also on hand was an evocative array of exotica from the likes of Jaguar, Ferrari, Porsche, and Maserati. Here are ten of our favorites.
