Triumph for Euro duo in Florida


Sam Mann won the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance on 14 March with his dazzling '37 Mercedes-Benz 540K Spezial Roadster, but the New York-based collector's Sindelfingen-bodied sensation was almost upstaged by a Californian one-off.
Featured in the dramatic Motor Trend Cover Cars display, the '48 Norman Timbs Special was inspired by '30s Auto Union racers. Gary and Diane Cerveny's 17 1/2 ft-long, mid-engined, Buick-powered roadster was saved from the desert and was a popular winner of Best Open Car on its show debut after a mammoth eight-year restoration.
Jonathan Feiber's ex-Stirling Moss Maserati 'Birdcage' won Best of Show - Concours du Sport. Moss had to cancel his visit due to his recent leg injuries, and so sadly couldn't make the 50th anniversary celebrations of his '60 Cuban GP victory.
