DiMora Vicci Slated for Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance
Father’s Day Event to Feature $1.2 Million Rolling Art on Wheels
Palm Springs, California, June 16, 2016 /PressReleasePing/ – DiMora Motorcar will be showing the DiMora Vicci 6.2 Emperor Convertible at the Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, June 19th, 2016 in Beverly Hills, California. Spectators attending the free event will have an opportunity to view the hand-built automobile and meet DiMora Motorcar company founder and car designer, Sir Alfred J. DiMora.
Each of the 25 cars in the limited edition DiMora Vicci 6.2 Emperor series feature original artwork by Zen Master Lee Sun-Don in the Great Treasure Gate collection. The original painting that accompanies the featured Vicci at this year’s event can be viewed at the X-Power Gallery (9601 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 125, Beverly Hills, CA), which is within walking distance to the Concours.
“We have been very selective with every aspect of building the Vicci 6.2 from choosing where to strategically place the 24-karat gold inlay to designing the custom wheels, so when it came time to choose the first artist series collaboration, not just any artist would do,” said DiMora. “Although designing luxury automobiles is where my true passion is, I’ve been an art enthusiast for a number of years and knew that Master Lee’s artwork would make for a perfect pairing of art and automobile.”
Pairing a 430-hp GM engine with lightweight carbon DFD construction, the DiMora Vicci 6.2 is hand-built in North America with the finest appointments, from Italian leather interior to Wilton Wool carpeting. It is the first true production rolling art, which makes it even more exclusive and sets DiMora Motorcar apart from other car manufacturers. The Vicci is also available with a supercharger option, offering up 556-hp for those looking for additional power under the hood.
“The last time we attended the Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance was back in 2010 with the debut of our DiMora Custom Bikes,” said DiMora. “The spectators to the Rodeo Drive Concours are a fun crowd and we are looking forward to exhibiting again this year.”
In the past, automobiles and art have been excellent investments throughout the collectors’ financial world and without exception, the DiMora Vicci 6.2 has grabbed the attention of both collector communities because it appeals to both demographics. The collaboration of the automobile and original accompanying artwork is expected to increase in value due to its timeless style, artist’s limited edition, and elaborate craftsmanship.
