The “Best in Show” is determined based on total points from all judged vehicles and the coveted Director’s Cup (which is a traveling award) is selected by the previous year’s recipient and the Show Director.
“Many car collector gems have graced the Automezzi lawn over the past 33 years and we are forever grateful that the Italian car and motorcycle community supports the Automezzi each year so we can share these beauties with the public and continue to raise money for local charities.”
Many iconic Italian marques to be showcased will include such well-known car makers as Ferrari, Pagani, Maserati, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lamborghini, Pininfarina, Abarth, Lancia, and Mazzanti.
Other special featured classes this year will also include Supercars, Motorcycles & Scooters.
Italian Marques at the Automezzi
For 33 years the Automezzi has been known as the largest car collection of exotic Italian cars and motorcycles (vintage to current) in the Rocky Mountain region.
Past displays have included a rare, vintage 1913 Fiat, a 1939 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Berlinetta Touring said to have once been owned by Mussolini. But also, the field will be filled with the most current top-selling exotic marques from all your favorite marques. As always, you will see a Supercar Showcase featureing a stellar line-up of Ferraris: the F40, F50, Enzo, and La Ferrari.
Other “two-wheeled” participants have included Italian scooters and Italian bicycles, along with rare and vintage motorcycles and a fine display of Ducati, Moto Guzzi, and Aprilia marques.
