Concours In The Hills

 

Started just five years ago by an ex-Canadian ‒ Peter Volny who is a frequent contributor to Private Wealth Canada on automobiles and travel ‒ Concours in the Hills has grown into what is Arizona’s premier show for high-performance, exotic, collector, classic, and race cars. In 2017, the show drew 647 cars and one genuine Vietnam era Cobra Gunship helicopter around which were parked 31 Cobra sports cars. There were some 15,000 spectators, 71 sponsor displays, and over $90,000 was raised for charity. The charity partner for this year's event on Saturday, February 10, is Phoenix Children’s Hospital and the show has now surpassed the goal of $100,000.

Update: The estimated attendance topped 20,000+ at this year's event. It raised over $110,000 for the Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

Among the highlights at Concours in the Hills this year was this, a D-type XK-SS Jaguar and a C-Type parked together - estimated value of both $40 million to $50 million worth.

The show is held in what is undoubtedly the most spectacular setting for a car show in Arizona, on the grass around the lake and 560-foot fountain in Fountain Hills, adjacent to Scottsdale. The huge park with gentle rolling hills affords lots of space so cars are arranged with room to fully open doors and still have room to walk around.

This is not a formal 'white gloves' concours, but rather a relaxed and fun event designed to allow enthusiasts to display their own vehicles and admire others. All high-performance, sports, classic, race, muscle, hot-rods, imports, and domestics are welcome. Awards will be given to Best Import, Best Domestic, and Best of Show. The Ferrari Club of America Desert Region will conduct Its own judging and other clubs may do so also.
The Concours is supported by the leading car clubs of Arizona representing Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, McLaren, Maserati, Jaguar, Corvette, Viper, Ford GT, Lotus, Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Alfa Romeo, DeTomaso, DeLorean, Mustang, Cadillac, and others.

Scheduled to be on display are two LaFerraris, a Bugatti Veyron with an 1897 and a 1913 Bugatti on either side, at least one 2017 Ford GT, but possibly three, and a D-Type Jag XK-SS and two C-types, plus numerous other rare vehicles.

Scheduled to open the show race car legends are Arie Luyendyk, Bob Bondurant, Paul Tracy, Lyn St. James, and Harley Cluxton with an announcement of 'Gentlemen, and Ladies, Start Your Engines' at which time over 600 cars will fire up and rev their engines.

Vehicle entries are a minimum donation of $60 to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Spectator admission and parking is free. In case of rain, the event will be rescheduled for February 17. Register now at givetopchf.org/concoursinthehills
