Because stretched Lincoln Navigators are gauche.

Though it’s a frightfully elegant affair, the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance tagline might be “show and sell.” Because while the formal invitations and prestige belong to those special cars parading across the Amelia Island golf course, the metal being sold a couple of tents over by Sotheby’s and RM is every bit as good. And, by good, we mean “superlatively beautiful,” “rarer than a Trump apology” and “more expensive than Zeus’ robe.” This March, when droves of the monied and seer-sucked drive across that causeway into the dank, tropical environment of the island, they will have the option to buy metal so fine, it might even qualify for the concours.

Take these lux limos. These aren’t your prom ride, nor gargantuan trucklets in which Real Housewives self-medicate en route to the launch of a new handbag line. Instead, think: How would the Queen arrive to her own birthday? What did John Rockefeller ride upstate? What will be waiting for Bernie Madoff upon his inevitable early release from Club Fed?
