On October 20, 2002, the city of Winter Park organized an exotic car show called Cours D'Elegance. Winter Park's Concours D'Elegance was an exclusive competition featuring 100 exotic collectible automobiles including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, Rolls-Royces, Mercedes-Benzes and Aston Martins displayed along "The Avenue" (Park Avenue).

The theme of the Concours was the Art of Automotive Design. Cars from 1950 to 2002 were shown with no two alike. This showed the evolution of each marques design for the last 50+ years.

For entertainment, attendees could stroll through Central Park while enjoying light Jazz and a "ringside" view of the cars on display. In addition, merchants rolled out the red carpet with wine tastings, a vintage cigar smoke and other unique events. The city offers a dizzying selection of sidewalk cafes to dine at and take in all the action.
