Over 30,000 people flocked to the inaugural Fullerton Concours d’Elegance in Singapore last weekend to celebrate the Fullerton Building’s 90th anniversary. Though the three-day event featured a broad range of cultural activities, the concours competition, which was won by a beautifully restored 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet, was the main focus. Other starring cars included a 1967 Jaguar E-type Series 1, which claimed the ‘Crowd Favourite’ award, a 1972 BMW 3.0 CSL, and a 1958 Porsche 356A Speedster.
Also displayed in various annexes of the Grand Hotel were the Fullerton’s fleet of Rolls-Royces, which included the fabulous Cadbury-purple Phantom II from 1934, and His Majesty Sultan of Johor’s stunning private collection, featuring a Lamborghini Miura, a BMW M1, and a Ferrari 365 GTB/4 ‘Daytona’, to name but a few. An embodiment of the luxury and attention to detail for which the Fullerton Hotel Singapore is so well known, we reckon this event has a very bright future ahead indeed.
