Amelia Island short film is almost as good as being there

Filed under: ,

Still from 'A Certain Inertia,' Justin Lapriore's 20-minute film about the 2014 Amelia Island Concours.

Last year Justin Lapriore made Born of a Blue Sky, a 16-minute film that brought us the best on offer from the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. This year Lapriore returned to that tuft of greenery just south of the Georgia state line and has put together A Certain Inertia, a 20-minute sweep over the Amelia lawns, ball rooms, runway and bridge.

With McLaren celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year, Inertia's got plenty of time for the legendary orange cars after opening up proceedings with a Ferrari 330 P4. There are also words from founder Bill Warner on why the concours is more than just about expensive, old things, and so much exhaust noise you can practically smell the racing fuel. Enjoy it all in the video below.

Infiniti to display special Q60 convertible celebrating Unser at Amelia Island

Filed under: , , , , ,

Infiniti Q60 Bobby Unser

Bobby Unser is one of the great American racing drivers of his generation, having won the Indianapolis 500 in 1968, '75 and '81 and belonging to the Unser racing dynasty. But he might be getting the oddest tribute of his life at the 2014 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. Infiniti has created a tribute to his Indy-winning 1968 car out of a Q60 Convertible (previously the G37), and he will be driving it around the event.

The Infiniti is wrapped in red, gold, black and white livery with the number 3 designed by the company's design director Alfonso Albaisa. While the connection seems dubious, Offenhauser-powered racecars are one of the featured vehicles at this year's concours, and the Japanese luxury automaker worked with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum to bring Unser's 1968 Eagle, which used an Offenhauser engine and flew those colors, to the show. The brand wanted a car of its own to match... no matter how outlandish it looked.

Honestly, while certainly a nice gesture, the choice still seems a bit weird. At least visitors will get the chance to see American racing royalty and his winning car. Scroll down to read Infiniti's full explanation for their effort.
