Palm Springs, California – September 3, 2015 – DiMora Motorcar will be showing the DiMora Vicci 6.2 Emperor Convertible at the Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, September 20, at the Los Verdes Golf Course in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.
Each of the 25 cars in the planned limited edition DiMora Vicci 6.2 Emperor series features original artwork by Zen Master Lee Sun-Don in the Great Treasure Gate collection. The original oil painting that has been meticulously transferred to the Vicci using gold leaf and brilliant colors is called ‘Development Unbound.’
‘We were delighted to receive the invitation from the Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance to use their venue for introducing the Vicci 6.2 to Southern California,’ noted Sir Alfred J. DiMora, owner of DiMora Motorcar. ‘Every Concours d’Elegance pays tribute to great cars of the past, lovingly preserved for posterity. The design of the Vicci 6.2 honors the Art Deco movement of the 1930s, and Master Lee’s artwork sets a new standard for the future collaboration of artists with automakers.’
The powerful 430-hp lightweight DFD Carbon construction DiMora Vicci 6.2 is hand-built in North America with the finest appointments. It is the first true production rolling art, which makes it even more exclusive and sets DiMora Motorcar apart from other car manufacturers.
‘DiMora’ Vicci 6.2 is truly rolling art at its finest,’ added Ray Johnson, the 2015 Palos Verdes Concours Chairman. ‘We know that it will be a tremendous asset to this year’s show for our attendees because never before have a car company and artist come together in such a unique and monumental way.’
In the past, automobiles and art have been excellent investments throughout the collectors’ financial world and without exception, the DiMora Vicci 6.2 has grabbed the attention of both collector communities. The collaboration of the automobile and original accompanying artwork is expected to increase in value due to its timeless style, artist’s limited edition, and elaborate craftsmanship.
