The 25th anniversary edition of the Concours – now owned and produced by Hagerty – expanded the automotive experience to an even wider range of enthusiasts. In addition to time-honored traditions like the Grand Tour and Saturday evening Waterfront Party, new event enhancements included Hagerty’s various curated “hands on the wheel” experiences, classic Ride & Drive opportunities, youth-focused activities and exquisite food experiences.
A 1927 Mercedes-Benz Model K shown by Michael and Joannie Rich, was chosen as this year’s Best in Show at the 25th annual Greenwich Concours d’Elegance.
“The car world has a belief system. And the belief system is that certain cars are just super important, deserving of celebration and recognition,” said McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty. “The Mercedes-Benz Model K selected as Best in Show represents that greatness – one that the judges recognized following significant deliberation. A very special thanks to all entrants, their teams and the winners.”
The 2021 event marked an evolution of the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance’s weekend program. Saturday’s inaugural motoring festival featured the unexceptional cars of Concours d’Lemons, Radwood favorites from the ’80s and ’90s, and Porschella by CarPark, a celebration of all things modified Porsche. A range of hands-on activities – ride& drives, racing simulators, slot car competitions, Hagerty Youth Programs and more – entertained enthusiasts and their families. On Sunday, both domestic and international marques were celebrated at the 25th Annual Concoursd’Elegance.
This year’s special classes included Ford vs. GM, 100 Years of Duesenberg, Right Coast Rods, Lancia, 75 Years of Allard and a first-ever SUV class. The 2021 featured motorcycle classes included MotoGuzzi and Indian.
