Three great reasons to love the Colorado Concours d'Elegance

Nearly 15,000 people participate every year in the event that brings incredible cars out of hiding. It is all to help children.

From fins to fenders, the Colorado Concours d’Elegance is the car show that draws true car enthusiasts. Nearly 15,000 people were expected on the grounds of the Arapahoe Community College, in Littleton, Colorado.
Nearly 500 rare sports and classic cars are on display, as well as early collectibles and exotics. Local and regional car clubs volunteer to make this one of the premiere auto events in the entire Rocky Mountain region.

Vehicles that are rarely seen

Many of the vehicles on display are rarely seen by the general public. Museum quality Auburns and Cords, vintage horseless carriages, and rare Mercedes and Jaguars line the grounds of the college. There are several areas set aside to showcase dozens of Porsches and Chevrolet Corvettes. Lamborghinis and Ferraris each have their own areas, displaying both current and classic models. Fiat and Alfa Romeo are also well represented, along with vintage Volvos and Saabs. Ford and Shelby have a prime spot to highlight the Ford GTs, both new and old, as well as every milestone model of Shelby Cobras, GT500s, GT350s and Mustangs. Whether you are a Rolls Royce lover or a Bentley aficionado, there is a vehicle designed to make you drool.

New cars are featured, too

There are also plenty of brand new Teslas, Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Porsches, Chevrolet Corvettes, Jaguars and Ford Mustangs to see. The 34th annual Colorado Concours d’Elegance has plenty to interest even the youngest vehicle lover, with several quirky vintage Volkswagen minivans and rare models like a fire-engine-red 1957 Chevrolet Suburban.

All proceeds go to help children

Proceeds from this spectacular event go to Ability Connection Colorado, which used to be known as Cerebral Palsy Colorado.The money raised will help fund their Creative Options for Early Childhood Education Centers. The education centers provide early care, intervention, prevention, support and education services to at-risk Colorado families and nearly 700 infants, toddlers and pre-school children each year. Children receive developmental screenings and assessment services, individualized mental health services. The wait-list consists of an average of 850 children annually.

It is especially nice to know that car lovers get the chance to see pristine examples of beloved autos while helping children at the same time.
