Thousands flock to the inaugural Fullerton Concours d’Elegance in Singapore
Over 30,000 people flocked to the inaugural Fullerton Concours d’Elegance in Singapore last weekend to celebrate the Fullerton Building’s 90th anniversary. Though the three-day event featured a broad range of cultural activities, the concours competition, which was won by a beautifully restored 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet, was the main focus. Other starring cars included a 1967 Jaguar E-type Series 1, which claimed the ‘Crowd Favourite’ award, a 1972 BMW 3.0 CSL, and a 1958 Porsche 356A Speedster.
Also displayed in various annexes of the Grand Hotel were the Fullerton’s fleet of Rolls-Royces, which included the fabulous Cadbury-purple Phantom II from 1934, and His Majesty Sultan of Johor’s stunning private collection, featuring a Lamborghini Miura, a BMW M1, and a Ferrari 365 GTB/4 ‘Daytona’, to name but a few. An embodiment of the luxury and attention to detail for which the Fullerton Hotel Singapore is so well known, we reckon this event has a very bright future ahead indeed.
