A weekend of fun for car and food lovers await at the Fullerton Heritage Precinct
Calling all vintage car fans: the first ever Fullerton Concours d’Elegance will be taking place this weekend from 29 June until 1 July. In conjunction with the Fullerton Building’s 90th anniversary, static displays of some 90 classic and modern cars will be gracing the historic structure’s forecourt.
These will include an extremely rare right-hand-drive Mercedes-Benz 500K from the 1930s, a 1958 Porsche 356A Speedster, a restored 1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II that’s part of the Fullerton Hotel’s private fleet, a 1972 BMW 3.0 CSi Coupe (cousin to the homologation special 3.0 CSL ‘Batmobile’), along with current models such as the new Ferrari Portofino and Rolls-Royce Dawn Black Badge. In attendance too will be a selection of cars from the Sultan of Johor’s personal collection.
As with any Concours, the assembled cars will be judged by a panel of distinguished judges presided over by Dr Ivor Thevathesan, president of the Malaysia and Singapore Vintage Car Register.
If cars new or old aren’t your thing, however, not to worry, because there’s a whole host of other activities to keep you or the family occupied at the Fullerton Heritage Precinct. Museum watches and specially commissioned automotive art pieces will be on display alongside the cars, and photographic workshops will also be held during the Fullerton Concours d’Elegance.
Foodies also haven’t been left out, with a gin-based cocktail created to commemorate the festivities; the Fullerton Heritage Precinct’s numerous eateries kicking into high gear to celebrate Singapore’s diverse food culture and food trucks will be scattered throughout the area.
