The Ferrari Club of America hosted the 10th Annual Pasadena Concorso Ferrari event in Old Town Pasadena, a show-stopping event which attracted well over 20,000 spectators and put 150 Ferraris on display.
The highlight of this year’s event was 5 amazing cars brought by San Marino resident and well-known Ferrari collector David Lee. Lee has an extensive and significant Ferrari collection, and this year he displayed his 1975 275GTB/4, 1967 330 GTS, 1964 Lusso Competizione, and two new cars: a very rare LaFerrari and a one-of-a-kind F12TDF/DSKL (a car special built to pay tribute to David’s 1964 Lusso).
A judged event, all cars over 10 years old were judged in their specific classes based on the model. Awards were Platinum, Gold and Silver and were awarded based on the originality of the car. Current Ferrari Club rules make it very difficult for a car to be awarded the Platinum level, which is only given to virtually perfect cars.
The most prestigious award of the day, Best of Show, was David Lee’s 1975 Ferrari 275GTB/4. “I feel honored to win this award,” Lee said, ever humble. “It makes all the passion, all the crazy attention to detail during the restoration worth it.”
Following the awards ceremony, the crowd was moved to the sidewalk and 150 Ferrari engines reveling in the company’s 70th year anniversary came to life. Over 20,000 spectators and their smart phones gleefully captured the parade.
With the Ferrari Club already planning next year’s event, the only question that remains is: What will Lee win with next year?
