The Concorso Italiano 2011 was held Friday, August 19th at the Laguna Seca Golf Ranch in Monterey, California. Celebrating its 26th anniversary this year, the Concorso Italiano once again featured hundreds of vehicles of Italian origin.
The centerpiece display at the 2011 Concorso Italiano featured more than 20 pre-1974 original and barn find cars, including the 1952 Ferrari 212/225 Barchetta by Touring that Enzo Ferrari gave to Henry Ford II. Also highlighted in the display was an alloy-bodied 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB, 1955 Fiat 8V by Vignale and a 1955 Alfa Romeo 1900 CSS Zagato that competed in Mille Miglia.
The 2011 Concorso Italiano also celebrated the 45th anniversary of the Maserati Ghibli plus the 40th anniversaries of the DeTomaso Pantera and Maserati Bora. For the first time, the Concorso offered the Black & White Showcase, a display of Italian cars that are either black over black or white over white.
Best of Show at the 2011 Concorso Italiano was awarded to the 1953 Fiat Stanguellini Berlinetta of Pete Vasquez.
