During this year’s Miami Concours, the duPont REGISTRY Group (DRG) joined the Miami Design District in ownership of the event, resulting in a stunning variety of vehicles, from early concepts to timeless icons and new unveilings.

Hypercars, however, stood out as the clear stars of the red carpet event, like the Bugatti EB110, Mercedes SLR McLaren, a row of rainbow Paganis and a select few RUFs.

Speaking on the event, Craig Robins, the founder of the Miami Design District, shared “We are excited to join forces with duPont REGISTRY, which has been an essential presence in the lives of luxury car lovers for almost four decades,” adding “The Miami Concours is an incredible platform for presenting some of the most coveted rarities in automobile history. Each year, this weekend unites the community and devout car enthusiasts worldwide to appreciate remarkable craftsmanship. I can’t imagine a more fitting destination than the Miami Design District to host this spectacular weekend.”

Notably, this latest addition marks the prestigious red carpet event’s seventh annual showcase, with the inclusion of DRG elevating it to new heights — thanks to its extensive portfolio in the luxury automotive lifestyle sector, including the iconic Cavallino Classic Ferrari event. DRG’s involvement underscores the event’s appeal to high-end consumers, having attracted an attendance of approximately 25,000 people.

At the event, there was truly something for everyone to enjoy, including a rare F1 car driven by Michael Schumacher, the unveiling of a Pagani Imola Roadster, one of eight in the world and an ultra-rare 1993 Bugatti EB110, one of 30 examples ever made. Additionally, the show featured enthusiast-geared vehicles, like RUF North America‘s Oak Green over Nato Green RCT Evo Restomod.

Explaining the vehicle in more detail to Hypebeast, RUF NA’s Account Executive Esteban Larrañaga shared “For the RCT, standing for RUF carrera turbo, we built a narrow body carrera donor into a 3.6L single turbo, 6-speed vehicle, with 425hp to the rear wheels,” adding “This is a rebirth of the RCT model allowing customers to relive the experience of ordering an air-cooled RUF vehicle while making it their own.”

The restomod comes equipped with the brand’s iconic stitch welding of the chassis, shaved rain rails, sunroof delete, integrated roll cage and optioned with carbon skin, providing the looks of a classic while outperforming many of the most modern cars.
