The Art of the Car Concours is one show that is circled on many enthusiast calendars in Kansas City. Every summer Rolls Royces, Duesenbergs, Cadillac V16s, Mercedes-Benzes, Porsches, Ferraris, Aston Martins, and BMWs come together on the courtyard of the Kansas City Art Institute for a show of dramatic proportions.
At 8:00, the first vehicles began to lumber in. Despite being a concourse event, many of the cars were driven to the event under their own power. Judges would scrutinize details later to make sure every chrome bit was as shiny as possible. Large trees expanded over the morning sky, providing shade and a lovely breeze to early morning spectators.
One of the highlights of the show was the iconic GM Dreamliner, a giant touring roadshow that was designed to show the world what the future had to offer. The Mercedes-Benz Dealers of Kasnas City were proud to bring some of tomorrow’s classics, including the 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL550 White Arrow Edition, a 2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 Sport, a GLA45 AMG, and the all-new AMG GTS. Kids and adults alike loved all the vehicles on display.
A beautiful vintage blue Mercedes-Benz was the first trophy winner of the day. Despite the weather heating up and the humidity bearing down, Mercedes-Benz was the hit of the show. Proceeds from the annual Art of the Car show benefit the Kansas City Art Institute and future careers in the fine arts within the Kansas City Area. The Kansas City Mercedes-Benz dealers are proud to sponsor events where cars and people can be brought together to benefit others. See you next year at Art of the Car Concours.
