The Cavallino Classic Sports Sunday 2017 was held January 29th at Mar-a-Lago, the Marjorie Merriweather Post mansion in Palm Beach, Florida. Unseasonably cold and rainy conditions plagued the last event of the larger Palm Beach Cavallino Classic, yet a strong selection of American, Italian, French, British and German classics still graced the show field at the famed Mar-a-Lago.
The finale for the 2017 Cavallino Classic featured Classic Marques and Maserati. Among the great selection of Maserati automobiles on display included a Maserati 200 Si; Maserati T60/61 Streamliner; Maserati Tipo 61 Birdcage and Maserati 5000 GT Indy. Other notable entrants included a Siata 208 CS Berlinetta; Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Shooting Brake; Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Competizione Series III; Fiat 8V Zagato; Ferrari 342 America; Chrysler Ghia ST Special and Lancia Aurelia PF200 C Spider by Pinin Farina; among others.
Best of Show at the 2017 Classic Sports Sunday Mar-a-Lago was awarded to the 1933 Delage D8S Roadster by De Villars from the Patterson Collection. Restored by RM Restorations, the white Delage D8S graced the 1933 Salon de Paris at the Grand Palais and won the top prize at the 2010 Pebble Beach Concours.
