“The vehicles this year exemplify the very best in automotive excellence and design,” said William “Chip” Connor, co-founder of The Peninsula Classics Best of the Best Award. “The accuracy of restorations [Is] becoming more precise and exquisite each year, making it difficult to select just one.”
An impressive judging panel has been assembled that includes Jay Leno (who owns a Duesenberg himself), the infamous former Chief of Design at BMW, Chris Bangle, and fashion and culture icon Ralph Lauren, who owns one of the most extensive car collections in the world. Ian Cameron, former Design Director for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, is also on the list of judges, as is the Chief Creative Officer for the Hyundai Group, Luc Donckerwolke.
The Peninsula Classics 2022 Best of the Best Award celebration will take place on Sunday, August 13, 2023.
