Monterey car week wouldn’t be complete without a generous dose of Italian flare; the best place for that is undoubtedly at Concorso Italiano!

 We were excited to celebrate the #33rd annual Concorso Italiano with Bacchelli & Villa, Ferrari South Bay, Ferrari Silicon Valley, Ferrari Beverly Hills, Ferrari Westlake, to create an amazing VIP hospitality area, boutique and Ferrari display overlooking the Ferrari pavilion.

Our eye-catching Ferrari display contained a great sampling from the Mattioli Automotive Group’s many endeavors. Front and center was the brand new Ferrari Portofino sporting impressive power from Ferrari’s award-winning twin-turbo V8. Flanking the Boutique area was the Ferrari 488 GTB juxtaposed with its racing counterpart, the Scuderia Corsa 488 GT3 which had just returned from a valiant battle by Cooper MacNeil and Gunnar Jeannette at Virginia International Raceway where they took 4th place.


Dealer Display

Opposite of these two sports cars was a bold blast from the past which was supplied by Collezione by MAG, our department that specialized in advising, sourcing, and representing the finest Ferraris in the marketplace. This 1973 365 GTS/4 is the 90th of just 121 Factory “Daytona Spiders”.

Complementing our display of stunning Ferrari automobiles were some examples of our fine work, delivered directly from our shop in Bastiglia (Modena). We showed off our skills with a 1:1 Ferrari 250 SWB wireframe, 1:3 Ferrari 250 SWB wireframe, and a miniature replica of the 599’s V12 engine.  Mr. Bacchelli and Mr. Arrighi also made the trip to represent the carrozzeria on American soil.  They spoke on the history of the shop along with the work that goes on to build the models on display.
