A vintage car feast takes place this August, as classic car enthusiasts anticipate the third (3rd) annual Concours South Africa on the 10th to 12th August at Steyn City’s Parklands. This year will see classic entries the likes of an Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint from the late 1950s early 1960s, a Fiat V8 Vignale, an Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Sport Freccia d’Oro, as well as some of Douw Steyn’s 1930 Rolls Royce and the Douwmobile, a 2010 custom designed Rolls.
Visitors will all convene to soak up the euphoria of this event, a combination of exceptional cars and glamour. This annual lifestyle fair, will see an array of car aficionados enter their vintage, classic and collectable automobiles into a competition which judges will evaluate on rarity, presentation and originality; whether they are pre–war, vintage or from the modern era – they all have to date no later than 1995.
South African Rory Byrne, designer of the Formula One cars that took Michael Schumacher to a record number of Grand Prix wins at Benetton and Ferrari, is to be inducted into the South African Hall of Fame at Concours South Africa 2018.
For the first time, an International Classic Car Auction will be held in South Africa. The Concours South Africa Auction, driven by Coys, will be headlined by 50 cars from The Plit Portfolio, which will go under the hammer on the Saturday evening of the three-day Concours South Africa classic car event, which runs from 10 to 12 August, at Steyn City.
The amazing collection of cars, being put up for auction by arch Johannesburg-based classic enthusiast Wayne Plit, represents just a small portion of his collection that began in the 1980s, starting with his first bona-fide classic, a 1964 Lancia Flavia Coup and followed by a Ford Escort RS2000 and a BMW 333i
Concours is not a contest of speed, but of style and elegance – the vehicles are judged on the quality presentation, historical accuracy and technical merit.
