Arizona Concours d’Elegance Top Award Winners

Best of Show, Best of Class and Special Awards presented at the Scottsdale event

The judges have spoken, so here is the complete list of award winners from the Arizona Concours d’Elegance at the Scottsdale Civic Center, held under threatening skies and with a few raindrops, but a magnificent event nonetheless.

The Best of Show winners are a pair of wonderful Italian sports cars, while the Best of Class and Special Award winners represented the beautiful array of about 90 collector cars that were spread out across the grass at the recently renovated Scottsdale facility, much to the delight of the crowd of spectators.
