Celebrating its 15th year the weekend of Friday April 12th, Saturday April 13th, and Sunday April 14th, the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance will be returning to the stunning shores of La Jolla, California. Earning the reputation as one of the finest internationally renowned classic automobile showcases in the United States, the La Jolla Concours continues to attract discerning car enthusiasts from around the globe. La Jolla Concours d’Elegance is an incredible weekend of prestigious events that takes great pride in appreciating the outstanding specimens that make up the automotive industry as we know it. With such a rich history and ever-growing population of vehicles in the world, the La Jolla Concours has made it a standing tradition to select a marque each year to honor throughout the weekend of events. The La Jolla Concours d’Elegance is pleased to announce that Cadillac has been chosen as the 2019 honored marque. In addition to Cadillac, La Jolla Concours will celebrate 100 years of Bentley and the 50th Anniversary of the Mach 1 Mustang. In total, attendees can expect to see 130 spectacular automobiles from around the world.
For the past two years the La Jolla Concours has featured some of the American Classics, including an outstanding display in 2017 celebrating a marque that spanned 59 years with the last model built in 1958: Packard. In 2018 the La Jolla Concours featured Lincoln, with one of the two surviving American luxury brand automobiles from 1917 to present. Thus, it was only fitting to make 2019 Cadillac’s year. Cadillac is the oldest surviving brand in the United States, dating back to 1901. With the Great Gatsby era cars in this automotive family, in particular the Coachbuilt V-16 (1930-1940) and V-12 (1931-1937), the La Jolla Concours will be attracting attention from spectators of all ages. Cadillac’s long-standing history promises a stunning assortment of models for the 15th Annual La Jolla Concours d’Elegance.
