BMW was present at the 2010 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance at the scenic Amelia Island, one of the most Northerneastern points in Florida. The Concours at Amelia Island is prestigious event held to showcase classic and modern cars as well as other cars of significant importance in the automotive industry – all of which are highly valuable. In this, the15th anniversary of the original Amelia Island Concours, the event continued it’s success of uniting multiple decades of both cars and owners into one incredible event.
Knowing that BMW of North America had a significant venue at which to show off the new 5 Series, a handful of executives brought down a 2011 535i along with a number of other very interesting Bimmers. Alongside the new F10 535i sedan the following could be found:
– 1999-2000 E39 M5 in Titanium Silver
– 1988 E28 M5
– 1999 V12 LMR
– 1975 CSL
– Mid-1990’s M3 PTG
While the pictures still don’t do these cars justice, a few facts must be noted about them. The E28 M5, owned by BMW NA, has only covered around 12,000 original miles since it left the factory.
Additionally, both the CSL and the V12 LMR are past 12 Hours of Sebring winners with the CSL taking overall victory in 1975 ( though this model was one of a handful BMW campaigned and not the official race winner) and the V12 LMR beating the entire field in 1999.
