Audrain’s Newport Concours & Motor Week

October 1 - 4, 2020 | Newport, Rhode Island


A Celebration of All Things History, Sport and Luxury

Spend your days enjoying fine dining pop-ups, exhibitions of rare and exciting automobiles, seminars, shopping, tennis, golf and sailing along the Newport coast. Then, once the sun goes down, experience exclusive concerts, galas and VIP parties hosted in the Gatsby-esque mansions that populate America’s original luxury capital.

The four-day program concludes with a centerpiece event, the Concours d’Elegance, which will feature a world-class collection of over a billion dollars worth of rare and vintage cars. During the 2019 Audrain’s Newport Concours, the question won’t be what will you do, but rather, how will you do it all? The event will be held October 3rd – 6th 2019 and tickets are on sale now.


Generations of Motoring History

Newport, Rhode Island was the birthplace of motor racing in America, thanks to Willie K. Vanderbilt. A young man at the turn of the century, Willie K. bought a Daimler Phoenix for $10,000, which would translate to about $250,000 in current dollars. His friends soon caught onto the motoring craze and in a matter of months they were all racing around the famed Ocean Drive, bragging that they would cruise along at over 60 miles per hour. They were quickly met with neighborhood backlash as their public road racing became hazardous, and so they took their sport to Newport’s horse racing track. It was there, in September of 1900, that the famed Vanderbilt Cup began to take shape.



Auto Lovers Will be in Good Company

One of the most famous car enthusiasts in Hollywood, Jay Leno, is the chairman of this year’s Audrain’s Newport Concours & Motor Week 2019 and he will be joined by premier automotive expert and TV personality Donald Osbourne, who serves as the Concours d’Elegance chairman. Event sponsors Aston Martin, Bugatti, Koenigsegg, Richard Mille, and Porsche, among others, will also be on-site throughout the 4-day celebration.

Though the cars on display are headliners in their own right, Audrain’s Newport Concours & Motor Week 2019 will see Grammy-award winning superstar John Legend take the stage of the International Tennis Hall of Fame for a private concert. VIP ticket holders will also gain access to the ultimate day soiree, The Gathering, held at the legendary Rough Point mansion and Museum. Enjoy lunch prepared by celebrity chefs, dance to a soundtrack served up by a celebrity DJ and get a closer look at Koenigsegg’s newest hypercar, the Jesko, a Bugatti Chiron Sport Glass Roof and a Porsche 356 Outlaw, customized by Rod Emory of Emory Motorsports.
