"Concept Cars." These words quicken the heartbeat of car enthusiasts everywhere. These amazing vehicles featuring technical innovation and advanced body designs spark the imagination, but also offer a glimpse into a future that might have been.  Premier collector events showcase these rare and unique cars for the same reasons today - to inspire us to dream beyond the cars of today.  Cars that fit this class capture the imagination and inspire enthusiasts alike - heightening interest levels and driving people to showrooms across the world.
     While most of us think of major manufacturers as producing and showcasing ideas of "what will be", there is a rich and varied history of concept cars developed, promoted, and celebrated by independent companies and talented designers.  In the 40s and 50s, many if not more concept cars were built outside of Detroit than inside.  Designers envisioned a world of ambitious proportions, challenging themselves to build the cars that would conquer the roadways leading to tomorrow.
     For 2016, the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance is proud to be the first to showcase some of the most ambitious, stylish, and avant-garde concept cars - all developed by companies and/or individuals outside of the major manufacturers in Detroit.  Cars in this class were built with an eye toward production but with a passion for innovation, resulting in captivating and sometimes outrageous concepts for public consideration.
     Join us in March 2016 when we celebrate these captivating vehicles in a class that will capture your imagination, revealing many examples that have remained hidden for more than half a century.
