Park Place Dealerships recently held a Collectors Kickoff Party at the MarineMax Dallas Yacht Center on Lake Lewisville to launch the 3rd Annual Park Place Luxury & Supercar Showcase.
Dallas Fort Worth’s premier luxury lifestyle and automotive event will return to the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday, September 28.
Guests were treated to a powerful lineup of luxury SUVs at the kickoff party that included the Rolls-Royce Culinan; the Bentley Bentayga; and the Maserati Levante. They also had the opportunity to board several luxury yachts at MarineMax, including the $1.5 million Galeon 500 Fly.
“The collectors were excited to hear this year’s Luxury and Supercar Showcase will be held entirely on the magnificent grounds of the Four Seasons TPC Championship golf course,” said Dave Evans, Chief Marketing Officer at Park Place Dealerships. “Our event is quickly growing into one of the foremost automotive celebrations in the Southwest. We are expecting a really distinctive selection of luxury, sports, vintage, classic and supercars from private collectors.”
In 2018, the top Collectors’ Concours award winners were presented with the “Spirit of Park Place” hand-crafted sculpture by Dallas artist Brad Oldham: • Best of Show - 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB 6C • Chairman’s Choice Award - 1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II • Salesmanship Club Award - 1980 BMW M1
In addition to the juried Collectors’ Concours, Park Place is inviting area Car Clubs to submit the best of their members’ cars for consideration in the Car Club Expo, powered by Park Up Front. Submissions for both the Collectors Concours and the Car Club Expo can be made online at LuxurySupercarShowcase.com
Representing some of the most coveted automobile brands in the world, Park Place will also feature some of the latest Rolls-Royce, Maserati, McLaren, Bentley, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, Volvo, Land Rover, and Jaguar models at the event.
The Luxury Lifestyle event will also offer fashion, food and retail offerings within the Porsche Pavilion. There will be live music performances all day on the Lexus Live Stage and refreshing beverages in The Mercedes-Benz Beer Garden, all spread across the 1st and 18th fairways on the beautiful Four Seasons TPC Championship golf course. Offering something for everyone in the family, the popular Kid’s Zone will return this year, complete with drivable cars and games for the younger enthusiasts.
