Lamborghini Miura and Ferrari 212/225 Barchetta

Concorso Italiano 2011 – Photo Gallery

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.

  1. Terry,
    The Intermeccanica story is really quite interesting.
    Holman & Moody, Griffith, Mark Donahue and others played parts in bringing the cars into the USA.

    All hand hammered/built exotics, first few had Chrysler engines, from there it went from 289, 302, 351W and then 351C.
    They had ford top loader 4 speeds, a few had automatics, floater type design ford 9 inch rear ends plus more..
    Maybe about 200 or so in the US.
    Ironically, two sold last year for record prices when most other collector cars fell in value.
    I have one I am selling, 20 year owner, I actually did business with Alex Trebec becuase he had/has one, not sure if he still has his or not.

    Hope this info is beneficial to a fellow car guy !!

    1. John,

      Thank you very much for all the informations.
      20 years… I’m sure you’ve been a happy owner.
      I would love to buy such a car, but unfortunately, at the current value, I can’t afford buying one any more.
      Good luck with the sale!

    1. There is really quite the story behind the man that made the Pantera .
      I have personally owned about 11 Pantera’s and two Mangusta’s which were the predecessor of the Pantera.

      Alejandro, or as some write it, Allessandro DeTomaso was quite a accomplished business man, race car driver, builder and fanatic.
      He drove in some outright serious races and built serious race cars also.

      One such race car was for the infamous Frank Williams.
      Played parts and rescued Maserati, Benille and Moto Guzzi motorcycles and also played parts in O.S.C.A.

      He also built the Vallelunga and the Long Champ later on, which I never really liked, loved the rest though, rolling sculpture that was exotic and fast.
      There is much more behind a Pantera than what meets the eye.
      I must confess that I did sell off my last Pantera to purchase my Italia Spyder.

      Glad to see that SCD placed a few pictures from the show, well deserved.
      All the best this evening.

  2. Valentino Balboni, of Lamborghini, spent some time with the Iso Bizzarrini group at Concorso Italiano this year and he told us that the first car he saw as a kid that sparked his interest in cars was a silver Bizzarrini GT 5300 just like mine. I wrote about this on MyCarQuest, of course.
