Best in Show at the Amelia Concours d’Elegance is a 1934 Duesenberg

The Best in Show winners for the Amelia Concours d’Elegance 2022 have just been announced and we were there to watch the pair roll up and claim their prizes.

The Amelia, like some other competition events, awards two “best in show” awards. The most important (and most prized) award goes to the overall Best in Show, and this year it’s the 1934 Duesenberg J-531 Convertible CoupĂ©.

Meanwhile, the second prize goes to the Best in Show for ‘Sport’. In other words, it is the Best in Show among the many motorsport entries in the show. This award goes to the 2017 Cadillac DPi-VR car you see at the top of this post with the Duesenberg. Konica Minolta’s car won the 24 Hours of Daytona led by Wayne Taylor Racing and was the car that marked Cadillac’s fairly successful return to prototype racing.

The Duesenberg that won was part of an entire Duesenberg class, and the Cadillac was part of a 60th anniversary of the Daytona 24-hour class. It was the newest race car on display, so winning over the many other old race cars was a bit of a surprise for a concourse event.

We’ll have tons of photos from the rest of the field at The Amelia soon, so stay tuned for a mega gallery headed your way.
