1956 Ferrari 250 GT LWB Berlinetta @ Concorso Ferrari - Old Pasadena, California
The Concorso Ferrari, hosted by the Ferrari Club of America’s Southwest Region, will be held on Sunday, May 22. This popular event will enjoy its third year on Old Pasadena, California’s, Colorado Boulevard, which offers plenty of room for foot traffic and the roughly 140 classic and contemporary Ferraris that will be on display.
Nearly 10,000 enthusiasts enjoyed the sights and sounds of Maranello’s finest during the 2010 edition of Concorso Ferrari, and like that event, this year’s show will support the Pasadena Art Center College of Design. Participating cars built through 1999 will be eligible for judging by a panel of 30 Ferrari experts to Ferrari Club of America National guidelines; awards will be given out in 10 classes, based on engine, model or year.
Among the very special, rarely seen Ferraris participating in this year’s Concorso Ferrari in Old Pasadena, California, will be the event’s headliner – the stunning 1956 250 GT long wheelbase Berlinetta, serial number 0515 GT, belonging to noted Italian car collector David Sydorick.
Mr. Sydorick’s 250 GT was bodied by Milan’s famous Carrozzeria Zagato at the commission of Milan resident Vladimior Galluzzi, and it features the coachbuilder’s famous trademark double-bubble roof. Not only has the car become famous for its stunning style – AFAS artist Ken Dallison featured it in his 1996 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance poster and program – but it’s placed and won many of the races it’s been entered in in the past 50 years.
