LOS ANGELES, CA—MARCH 1, 2017—AUTOMOBILE, America’s leading automotive lifestyle brand, and the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance announced today that AUTOMOBILE will reveal its 2017 All-Stars live on Facebook during Amelia’s Cars & Coffee at the Concours event on Saturday, March 11 at 11 a.m. EST.

AUTOMOBILE chooses its annual All-Stars from a diverse mix of vehicles, including passenger cars, super sports cars, sport/utilities, and minivans. This year’s six winning cars were selected after several days of exhaustive testing from a field of 23 all-new, heavily revised, or newly significant variants of vehicles on sale in the United States during the 2016 calendar year.  

“The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance is without question one of the preeminent automotive events in the world,” says AUTOMOBILE Editor-in-Chief Mike Floyd. “We are absolutely thrilled to host our 2017 All-Stars celebration at The Amelia and are honored to partner with such a fantastic event.”

Amelia’s Cars & Coffee at the Concours is a free-to-the-public celebration of the spirit of the automotive enthusiast and allows individuals to display their vintage, exotic, and otherwise collectible vehicles on the same show field as the following day’s Concours d’Elegance. The six 2017 AUTOMOBILE All-Stars will be shown to the world for the first time on the greens in front of Club Amelia, with the reveal streamed live on the AUTOMOBILE Facebook channel.

“We are delighted to welcome the AUTOMOBILE All-Stars to our 2017 Cars & Coffee at the Concours event,” says Brian Webber, Executive Director.  “Having AUTOMOBILE honor their top picks on the same field where we celebrate many of the greatest vehicles of all time is a winning combination.”
