The four-day program concludes with a centerpiece event, the Audrain Concours d’Elegance, which will feature a world-class collection of over a billion dollars worth of rare and vintage cars. During Audrain’s Newport Concours, the question won’t be what will you do, but rather, how will you do it all?
