What does it take to wow the judges at The Amelia Concours d'Elegance? Take an already-stunning Delahaye 135 MS convertible, throw on some dazzling coachwork from Figoni et Falaschi and you have yourself a best of show winner.

Only seven examples of the 135 MS convertible were fitted with Figoni et Falaschi coachwork, with this one having been previously shown at the 1947 Paris Auto Salon and later owned by the “French Frank Sinatra,” Charles Trenet.

The Delahaye, now currently owned by Mecum Auctions founder Dana Mecum, is joined by the Concours de Sport Best in Show winner, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO owned by WeatherTech founder David MacNeil.

The Ferrari features in-period racing history, the highlight of which is a fourth-place finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1963. More recently, the 250 GTO gets frequent usage in vintage racing events and road rallies.
