The 9th Annual Kirkland Concours d'Elegance will take place at Carillon Point on Sunday, September 11th 2011, from 9am - 4pm. This year, the event welcomes the arrival of "The most famous car in the world," James Bond's Aston Martin DB5.
The Kirkland Concours is happy to annouce that what may very well be the most famous car in the world, the Aston Martin DB5, will be attending our Concours on September 11th. Well-known around the world by its original UK registration number, FMP 7B, this Aston Martin is one of only two, and the sole remaining, of the original ‘007’ DB5s as featured on screen with Sean Connery behind the wheel in the enormously popular Goldfinger and Thunberball movies.
Commuters should expect traffic delays along Lake Washington Blvd. NE and Lakeview Drive on Sunday, September 11, due to the Kirkland Concours d’ Elegance event. The event is a display of twelve historic classes of automobiles, sidecar motorcycles, and vintage boats. Event hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event has been permitted by the City of Kirkland.
