More than 225 cars representing 22 classes will descend on the The Golf Club of Amelia Island on Sunday, March 6.

Excited? The Amelia has given us a sneak peek at what we can expect to see on the show field:

To celebrate 75 years of the Ferrari brand, several significant models will be on display, ranging from a 1949 166 MM, all the way up to the 2015 LaFerrari.

Honoree Chip Ganassi will be celebrated in part by the showing of Ganassi Racing Ford GT, chassis number 007. Besides being one of four GTs raced under the Ganassi flag in IMSA and the WEC, 007 achieved wins at Daytona and Road America in 2017 plus Watkins Glen and Line Rock in 2018.

Several unusual Japanese sports cars will be on the show field, like the rear-engine Hino Contessa and Isuzu Bellet GT-R.

[Could your next classic come from Japan?]

Many claim to offer “the car of the future,” though few look as interesting as the Davis three-wheeler. Six of the surviving 12 examples will be on display.

And of course, be sure to look out for your friends from Classic Motorsports when you are out on the show field, and say hello if you spot us–we’ll also have our 911 Carrera project car on display during Saturdays Cars & Community, just look for the Radwood display.
