2nd annual Concours at Pasadera Car Week 2020 Features collector cars, motorcycles and Hot Wheels 1200 HP, 206 MPH,
MONTEREY, Calif. — For those who couldn’t attend last year’s inaugural Concours at Pasadera, Carmel artist Simon Bull’s artwork for the 2020 event poster tells the story of "Ford vs. Ferrari" and the spirit of the 2020 event through his love of color — and cars as vintage race cars roar past in the fading light of day. The England-born artist has enjoyed international success for his vibrant artwork. The poster reflects a Car Week experience like no other with Bull’s one-of-a-kind, colorfully painted Aston Martin on display.
Concours at Pasadera will provide a complete celebration, with Champagne and delectable hors d’oeuvres, along with cars competing in class awards from Tiffany & Co., and the backdrop of a luxurious private country club and Jack Nicklaus-designed Signature golf course. As one guest said about last year’s event: “Fine cars, excellent cuisine in an atmosphere of casual elegance.” While that may sound difficult to eclipse, members of The Club at Pasadera have every intention of doing just that at the second annual event on Friday, Aug. 7, from 2-6 p.m.
In recognition of exhibitors who have presented outstanding vehicles in prior years, both the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance and The Concours at Pasadera will encore previous award-winning automobiles, along with awarding new Class Winners, during their August 2020 events.
The concours will showcase a juried collection of modern, classic, competition, commercial and vintage automobiles, along with motorcycles gathered from club members and enthusiasts. Also featured will be an Alumni Arena, presenting 25 chosen exhibitors from five classes. Guests will experience a tribute to the famed “Ford vs. Ferrari” competitions held at Le Mans between 1966-69. Competition vehicles from both marques will be on display. In all, the exhibition encompasses more than 80 cars and motorcycles from North America, Europe and Asia.
Silicon Valley supercar manufacturer, Drako Motors, will exhibit it's 1200 hp, four passenger luxury electric hypercar, Drako GTE. With a fully electric quad motor architecture, Drako GTE generates 8,800 Nm of combined wheel torque for unrelenting acceleration up to a top speed of 206 mph. Drako GTE will be one out of three Halo Cars to be featured at the show.
The first-ever Hot Wheels Concours will be part of the Pasadera event, inviting both younger and older exhibitors to present their collections for awards. Guests also will enjoy an exceptional culinary experience, with the event benefiting countywide charitable causes.
‘Ford vs Ferrari’
While the focus will be centered on Friday’s festivities, Pasadera will host a pre-Concours party for exhibitors and sponsors on Thursday, Aug. 6, from 5-8 pm, highlighted by a private screening of scenes from the film Ford vs. Ferrari starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon.
The film follows a determined team of American engineers and designers, led by automotive visionary, Carroll Shelby (Damon), and his British driver, Ken Miles (Bale), who build a new racing car intended to defeat the perennially dominant Ferrari racing team at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans in France.
Bring your Hot Wheels
The famous toy from Mattel has become hugely collectible, with fans unearthing pieces that could belong in an investment portfolio. For the 2020 event, the Hot Wheels Concours will present scale-model cars (1967-2020) owned by exhibitors from around the world. Famed collector Bruce Pascal will exhibit a selection of his prized models, one of which will be the famous 1969 Beach Bomb valued at $175,000.
Life-sized Hot Wheels cars also will be a part of this incredible event. The Concours at Pasadera will include Vintage Hot Wheels (manufactured between 1968-1977 with red lines on the tires); Classics (1978-1994); Modern Classics (1995-2020, including the 1995 “Treasure Hunt” launch); Customized (manufacturing dates open); and Special Exhibition (rare examples accepted by the jury).
