FERNANDINA Seashore, Fla. — Greatest in Show winners for the 2022 Amelia Concours d’Elegance were just introduced, and we had been there to see the pair roll up and declare their prizes.

The Amelia, like some other concours gatherings, palms out two “best in show” awards. The main (and most prized) award goes to the in general Greatest in Clearly show, and this yr it is the 1934 Duesenberg J-531 Convertible Coupe. 

Meanwhile, the second award goes to the Ideal in Present for “Sport.” In other terms, it’s the Ideal in Display among the quite a few motorsports entries in the exhibit. This award goes to the 2017 Cadillac DPi-V.R motor vehicle you see pictured at the major of this put up with the Duesenberg. The Konica Minolta auto gained the 24 Hrs of Daytona below Wayne Taylor Racing’s stewardship and was the vehicle that marked Cadillac’s fairly profitable return to prototype racing.

The Duesenberg that won was component of an all-Duesenberg class, and the Cadillac was element of a 60th Anniversary of the Daytona 24 Hour class. It was the most recent racecar on display, so it profitable vs . the quite a few other old racecars was a bit of a surprise for a concours event.

We’ll have tons of pics coming from the relaxation of the subject at The Amelia before long, so keep tuned for a mega gallery coming your way.
