Held at One Classic Car Drive in Blenheim, Ontario from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, the RM40 Concours d’Elegance will form part of the additional anniversary activities set for RM Headquarters on June 22. A collector car display of automobiles unlikely to be assembled in Canada ever again, the RM40 Concours d’Elegance will feature some of the rarest and most beautiful cars in the world.
Highlights include the wild yet stunningly graceful 1937 Cadillac Series 90 Hartmann Cabriolet, measuring an imposing 22 feet in length, the one-off car was most recently shown at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance; and the multi-award winning 1933 Delage D8S Roadster by De Villars, one of just 99 models built, and representing the height of the Art Deco-influenced French design in the 1930s. The Cadillac and Delage were beautifully restored by the expert craftsmen at RM Auto Restoration, who have won the coveted Best of Show an unmatched six-times at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
Tickets to the indoor Concours are now available for purchase at cktickets.com at a cost of $20 each (plus handling fee). Tickets will also be available at the gate, and children 12 years of age and under will be admitted free. Commemorative posters will also be available for purchase at the event. All proceeds from the RM40 Concours d’Elegance ticket and poster sales will directly benefit the Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation of Chatham-Kent. The Foundation works to raise community awareness and funds for the Children’s Treatment Centre of Chatham-Kent, which provides quality care to children in the community who have physical, developmental or communication challenges.
Set to be an unforgettable weekend in Chatham-Kent, additional activities for RM Sotheby’s 40th Anniversary weekend will be announced in the coming weeks. For more information and event details, please visit rm40th.com.
