The 21st Annual Copperstate 1000

Every year, the Copperstate 1000 brings out the best of the best, and this year’s event was no exception. Previous years have played host to some of my personal favorites… Ferrari 250 Californias, BMW 507s, Zagatos, XKSSs and much more. It’s one thing to see cars of this caliber displayed like sculptures at a car show or rolling slowly across an auction block swarmed by a crowd of buyers, sellers and spectators, but it’s an entirely different thing to see them bursting by at full throttle in all their glory. This year, Zagato bodied cars and red open-top racers made a strong presence and definitely caught my eye. Check out the full gallery from this year’s launch as well as shots from previous years at the links below.
