Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, has signed on as title sponsor of the third annual Concours in the Hills high-performance and classic car show scheduled for Saturday Feb. 13, 2016 at Fountain Park in Fountain Hills.

The 2015 show had over 440 cars on display and raised over $60,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale, according to a press release. All proceeds from the 2016 event will once again be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale.

Concours in the Hills is not a formal “white glove” event, but rather a gathering of automobile enthusiasts in one of the most spectacular locations in the valley, on the green grass around the 560-foot fountain.

“We’re looking forward to being a part of Concours in the Hills for their third annual event,” stated Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson, in the release. “We will be showcasing some spectacular vehicles from the Barrett-Jackson Collection Showroom all the while lending our support to the local car community and the Boys and Girls Club.”

The Concours showcases a diverse range of ultra-high performance, luxury, and classic vehicles from both imported and domestic manufacturers, the release stated. These include million dollar, 200-MPH cars such as Bugatti Veyron and La Ferrari, European sports cars, American muscle cars and pre-war classics. A special feature in 2016 will be Arie Luyendyk’s Indy 500 winning car.

Well over 400 cars are expected to participate in the 2016 event so the display area will be double the size of last year’s and there will be two vehicle entrances to eliminate delays.

Once again there will be awards for best domestic, best import, best of show and best of each brand. Spectator admission is free, and there will be free parking.

Automobile owners and sponsors who are interested in participating at the 2016 Concours in the Hills can contact event organizer Peter Volny at:
