Eventgoers can anticipatea show stopping displays of horsepower with cars set to be featured, including a 1966 Ferrari 206 S Dino, 1955 Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing, 1966 Porsche 906 and a 1987 Porsche 962,as well as a large stable of super and hypercars.

Highlights from this year’s curated exhibition also include historic aircraft such as a 1938 Lockheed 12A,300S and an Albatross N51ZD.

New partners joining this year include VistaJet, who will display two aircraft from their impressive business jet fleet, a Challenger 350 and a Gulfstream G450. Roger Dubuis will bring a collection of rare contemporary haute horlogerie for guests to view, including their just-released Excalibur Spider Pirelli, fueled by adrenaline and crafted with winning motorsport tire rubber.

For a fun twist, guests are invited to compete at their “pit stop” and race against the clock to swap out the timepiece colorway—meanwhile, automotive partners joining include Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and McLaren, who will display the 750S and their next-generation hybrid supercar-the Artura.
