The event is scheduled for April 25- 27, 2014 and will feature some of the world’s finest post-war sports and exotic cars staged on the resort’s Raymond Floyd-designed Soffer golf course.
“We are excited to host Miami’s first-ever Concours d’Elegance event at our legendary South Florida property,” said Paige Koerbel, Managing Director of Turnberry Isle Miami. “This prestigious international event will be the first of its kind, attracting car connoisseurs and aficionados from across the Americas with a common bond – a love for fine automobiles.”
Turnberry Miami Concours, a Pan American event is scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, April 27. The Concours will be open to the public through general and VIP admission, and will provide spectators with a canvas of the most select, unique and specialty collector cars surrounding the resort’s Soffer course with its signature 64-foot waterfall. A panel of noted collectors and leading authorities will judge the cars, followed by an awards ceremony at the culmination of the weekend-long event.

Turnberry Isle Miami and Lou La Vie will launch the inaugural Turnberry Miami Concours, a Pan American event with a variety of experiences for car collectors to enjoy over the weekend– including a kickoff golf tournament on April 25. That same evening the resort will boast a VIP and welcome reception.
On April 26, car collectors can participate in a “Track Day” at the Palm Beach International Raceway before heading back to Turnberry Isle Miami for a Charity Gala and Car Auction.
“When we decided to bring this event to Miami, we immediately thought of Turnberry Isle Miami. Not only is it the only resort in the destination able to cater to the large, discerning crowds we’re expecting – up to 10,000 people – but the property itself is exquisite. We’re truly excited to offer event guests the opportunity to take advantage of the resort’s full range of world-class amenities through a display of the world’s most rare collection of prized cars,” said John Temerian, President of Lou La Vie. “This event will be an unparalleled opportunity for brand promotion, and we are currently in discussions with potential sponsors and partners.”
