Noosa Concours d’EleganceSaturday 13 July, 2024

It is the epitome of automobile excellence, an unmissable celebration of masterpieces for the curious, as well as connoisseurs of art and style, to gather and admire, over 80 cars, the majority displayed on closed-off Hastings Street.

At Noosa’s second Concours d’Elegance on Saturday 13 July 2024, four Concours judges, including one international, have the honour of selecting the Best Modern Car (last 30 years), Best Classic Car and Best in Show, the latter presented by Tom Offermann Real Estate.

Rare sightings include a Ferrari LM250, the only one of its kind in Australia; McLaren F1 and McLaren Speedtail both one-of-a-king in Australia; Lamborghini Miura SV, the only SV in the country; and the 1963 Brabham BT7, also known as the Repco Brabham BT7, a Formula One racing car distinguished by its aerodynamic profile and sophisticated engineering.

What a haven too for luxurious automotives with iconic marques such as Maserati, Lamborghini, Bentley, McLaren, Aston Martin, Porsche, BMW and Mercedes Benz, all part of the Prestige Car Display. 

The profoundly influential Max Hoffmann, who played a pivotal role in shaping automotive culture will be honoured as part of the Bowden’s Own Motorsports Display, with   a rare opportunity to witness the cars that Max Hoffmann introduced to the American market, such as the iconic Porsche Speedster, celebrating its 70th anniversary together with the legendary Mercedes-Benz 300SL.

The globally-recognised Sleeping Beauties Restoration company, will have a unique display of restoration in motion, a 1956 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing SL set on a period Mercedes Benz transporter.

On Saturday as well as Sunday morning, in the forecourt of the French Quarter Resort and Tom Offermann Real Estate, the eastern end of Hastings Street will feature a bespoke collection of cars including four Ferraris and two of McLaren’s rarest models, adding an air of excitement to the Ayrton Senna Long Lunch on Sunday at neighbouring Locale.
