The all-German marque Concours d’Elegance that has become a staple on the annual Monterey Car Week schedule will host a second event in 2021, which will bring the show to the East Coast. Legends Of The Autobahn East will be held in partnership with the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival’s Car Club Showcase event on Saturday, November 6, 2021 on the grounds of the Port Royal Golf Club.

The BMW Car Club of America, Audi Club North America, and Mercedes-Benz Club of America—in conjunction with the HHI Concours—will offer a total of 160 entries for this inaugural event. LOTA organizers will conduct their own judging, and the winning cars from each club will be asked to join the festivities and to be displayed during the Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, November 7. 

“We were all so incredibly disappointed to cancel our 2020 show,” said Lindsey Harrell, the Hilton Head Island Concours’ president. “However, this has given us the opportunity to shift our focus towards building a spectacular event for next year. And, to have this event already in the works for 2021, is beyond exciting and will be a great addition for our guests and our island.”

The members of the Audi, Mercedes Benz, and BMW Clubs of America look forward to bringing the premier all-German Marque Legends Of The Autobahn concours to the East Coast,” said Frank Patek, BMW CCA Executive Director. “Legends is a mainstay of the famed Monterey Auto Week. The founders of this landmark event agree that the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival and its acclaim is the best place to share our passion on the East Coast.”

“We couldn’t be more eager for our return to the show field next fall after the COVID-induced hiatus,” said Harrell. “Much is planned for the 2021 Hilton Head Island Concours d’Elegance, and this will only add to the excitement of our comeback. We are enthusiastic about this partnership and what it could bring down the road.”

With the addition of Legends of the Autobahn East to the schedule, more than 600 vehicles are scheduled to participate at the 2021 Festival.  What will now be the nineteenth annual Hilton Head Island Concours d’Elegance Motoring Festival is scheduled for October 29 – November 7, 2021.

This year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of the beloved r107 SL chassis with a special judged class. In April 1971 the second longest production car in Mercedes-Benz history made its debut. Spanning 18 years of production it was the only roadster available from Mercedes and the first SL to have an 8-cylinder powerplant.
