10 Exotic Cars to Get Excited to See at the Park Place Luxury & Supercar Showcase

 

August 2019

Even if you don’t know the difference between a supercharger and a turbocharger, you can still drink in the beauty of rolling sculpture at the Third Annual Park Place Luxury & Supercar Showcase. 

But if you do know, so much the better, because you’ll be among your tribe at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas in Las Colinas on Saturday, September 28th. 

This year’s event showcases three eye-popping display areas (with a wallet-busting worth of more than $100 million):  

  • Collectors’ Concours – The day’s flagship event, with international judges evaluating more than 100 rare classics.  

  • Club Car Expo – More than 200 of the best regional show-n-shine cars. 

  • New Car Concours – The latest from Park Place, including Rolls-Royce, Maserati, McLaren, Bentley, Karma, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, Volvo, Jaguar and Land Rover.

Oh wait, did we mention Automobili Pininfarina and Koenigsegg? Yes, you read those last two right. Really, that says it all (for the car nuts, at least). If you’re already hooked, fast forward and purchase your tix with code Dallasites101 for 10% off VIP and GA!

And if you need more persuading, consider these show-stoppers that’ll be, well, show-stopping. (And while we can’t show you theses specific vintages, Park Place is definitely bringing the heat, and you won’t want to miss seeing them in person!)


1967 Shelby GT500

At a time when thrills came in cubic inches, the fire-breathing GT500 epitomized American muscle – and this one’s dash was signed by Carroll Shelby himself.


1993 Ferrari 512 Testarossa

This two-door, 12-cylinder, mid-engine coupe, designed by Pininfarina, is one of only four white/white models in America, identical to the “Miami Vice” TV show car.


1936 Pierce Arrow

Cadillac, Packard and Lincoln all feared “the world’s safest car” for its luxury, performance and value, and 1936 was a year of major, beneficial change. 


1936 Mercedes-Benz 500 K Special Roadster

Arguably the most beautiful Mercedes-Benz ever created, only three with this bodywork survive. It’s the real deal – an original restored to authentic factory specs. 


1989 Ferrari Mondial t Cabriolet

Ferrari of North America specifically requested that this car be shown as part of “The Tribute to Ferrari” Spiders (convertibles) at 2018’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. 


1964 Aston Martin DB5

Other than Goldfinger, who doesn’t love the iconic lines of 007’s best-known grand tourer? This concours-level example is licensed to thrill. And speaking of Bond…


1969 Mercury Cougar XR7 Convertible

This roomy American played a starring role in the Bond flick, “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,” with James Lazenby and Diana Rigg. 


1959 Long Wheel Base Rolls Royce Silver Cloud

A gorgeous, quintessentially British limo owned by the family of Olympic great and film actor Buster Crabbe. “Magic Carpet Ride,” indeed. 


1964 Studebaker Avanti R2

A landmark design by Raymond Loewy's legendary team, the futuristic Avanti was billed as “America's only four-passenger high-performance personal car.”


1989 Porsche 930 Turbo

This exceptionally powerful, rambunctious, top of the line 911 is one of only 35 built in the final year of production. 


Just like driving a car is better than simply looking at it, a photo can’t do these Collectors’ Cars justice because they are meant to be experienced in-person. So rather than spill the beans, we want to build the suspense!

To see what these exclusive and historic automobiles (described above) look like, you can see them in-person on the Collector’s Concours at the September 28th…and lucky you, we included a discount code “dallasites101” for 10% off GA and VIP admission!

Tickets are available online and range from $25 for show field to $100 for a VIP all-access pass.
