Prestigious Palm Event Auto Show
The Elliott Museum car collection made a splash at the prestigious Palm Event Auto Show held at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach. Incoming car curator Jim Ferrare presented the 1953 Cunningham convertible, which held its place among some of the world’s finest vintage Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Porsches as well as other fine European classics.
The Cunningham is the crown jewel of the museum’s auto collection, and is one of five roadsters produced by Palm Beach’s own Briggs Cunningham in 1953. The bodies were manufactured in Italy and the cars were final assembled in West Palm Beach. This beauty turned a lot of heads at the show, and took home the “Most Palm Beachy” award.
And as a special honor, Jim Ferrare selected a stunning 1938 Delahaye 135 MS Torpedo Grand Sport owned by Jeffrey & Frances Fisher to receive the first-ever “Elliott Award,” presented by CEO Rob Steele. Look for several new exciting car events to be taking place at the Elliott in conjunction with the Palm Beach car community.
