The inaugural Fullerton Concours d’Elegance, a prestigious three-day automotive celebration, is set to transform The Fullerton Heritage precinct in Singapore from 29th June to 1st July, 2018
Singapore National Monument, the Fullerton Building – home to The Fullerton Hotel Singapore – is celebrating its 90th anniversary with the inaugural launch of Fullerton Concours d’Elegance – a prestigious automotive event taking centre stage in The Fullerton Heritage precinct in 2018. Visitors will have the chance to view over 90 vintage, classic and super cars from all over the world, while a repertoire of year-round events and promotions continue all over Singapore. Gourmet dishes served by The Fullerton Hotel Singapore Culinary Team and award-winning chefs will be on offer, as well as plenty of music performances and art installations, gala dinners, after-parties, charity car convoys, attracting an expected 30,000 local and international visitors to Singapore.
The Fullerton Concours d’Elegance will celebrate the best in collector and car design with an unprecedented tribute to automotive excellence. The event will showcase some of the finest examples of pre-war and post-war collector cars in terms of history, craftsmanship, power and technology. Restored vintage cars from the 1920s, antique cars from the 1930s, classic cars from the 1970s, and modern marvels will be prominently displayed along the picturesque waterfront at Clifford Square and Clifford Pier, in the iconic Fullerton Hotel Singapore and at Fullerton Square.
With four competition classes: Pre and Post-World War II, Open Top and Modern Classics, highlights include the classic 1934 Austin Seven Ulster Special, which boasts an aluminium body with no doors, a 1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II from the hotel’s recently restored Rolls Royce fleet, and the legendary Lamborghini Miura previously owned by Don Miura himself. Visitors will be the first in the region to see the 2018 Rolls-Royce Dawn Black Badge and 2018 Ferrari Portofino. Additionally, innovative electric car prototypes created by the students from Nanyang Technological University will be displayed at One Fullerton.
Visitors can also take part in the judging process by voting for their favourite car on the Fullerton Concours d’Elegance website. All qualified votes will be entered into a lucky draw on 1st July and three winners will receive dining vouchers at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore.
For foodies, the Fullerton Hotel Singapore Culinary Team will also work closely with award-winning chefs to offer a bespoke dining extravaganza of perennial Singapore favourites and Peranakan delights, reflective of the city state’s cosmopolitan melting pot of cultures. In addition to the visual spectacle at the event, visitors will be able to sample food from various Kombi food trucks located throughout The Fullerton Heritage precinct.
