Concours South Africa

The Concours South Africa was held for the second time in Sun City, which lies about 150 kilometers north of Johannesburg. Collectors from all over South Africa showed their treasures they are keeping in their garages. It were all above the younger classics, which found the interest of the jury here,- which was re-spelled out in the “Best of Show”, because this prize went to the owner of a Ferrari F40, built in 1989. Second place in the overall ranking was won by an unrestored and original left Ford Mustang GT 350H built in 1968. This Mustang is a rarity, because it belongs to a small series, which was built especially for the car rental Hertz. Third place went to the owner of a Porsche 911S Shortwheelbase from 1970.

The oldest vehicle in the field was a 1913 Buck. The youngest vehicle in the field was a Porsche 928 S4 from 1989. The organizer was very satisfied because he noticed an increasing interest in the second Concours. Two owners had specifically hurried to complete their classic car restorations quickly, to be able to attend the event on time. The Ferrari Dino 246 GT from 1971 and the Lamborghini Miura S from 1970 adorned the field of participants in Sun City on time.

Of course, the Concours D’Elegance was also attended by vehicles made exclusively for the South African market, such as a Ford Sierra XR8, the Alfa Romeo GTV with a three-liter engine or even the Ford Capri Perana.
