The inaugural Fullerton Concours d'Elegance is set to transform The Fullerton Heritage precinct from 29 June to 1 July, celebrating the 90th anniversary of the iconic Fullerton Building, now home to The Fullerton Hotel Singapore.
The Fullerton Building was gazetted as a National Monument on 7th December 2015 in recognition of its pivotal role in Singapore’s history. It previously housed the General Post Office, once the "most important post office in the East," and served as "Mile Zero" from which all of Singapore was measured. Today, the Fullerton Building serves as the cornerstone of The Fullerton Heritage precinct, which comprises seven key establishments: The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore, The Fullerton Waterboat House, One Fullerton, The Fullerton Pavilion, Clifford Pier and Customs House.

Held over three days, the festivities include gala dinners, live music performances, art and cultural exhibitions, workshops, family fun activities, luxury yacht displays and charity car convoys, offering visitors a diverse range of activities and experiences that embody the building's rich heritage and showcasing the brand's passion for luxury hospitality and lifestyle.
With over 90 vehicles on show, the preeminent Concours d'Elegance (competition of elegance) showcases some of the finest examples of pre-war and post-war collector cars in terms of history, craftsmanship, power and technology. Restored vintage cars from the 1920s, antique cars from the 1930s, classic cars from the 1970s, and modern marvels from Aston Martin, Bentley, Bugatti, Ferrari, Rolls-Royce and Vanda will be prominently displayed along the picturesque waterfront at Clifford Square and Clifford Pier, in the iconic Fullerton Hotel Singapore and at Fullerton Square.
Highlights include the classic 1934 Austin Seven Ulster Special, which boasts an aluminium body with no doors, a 1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II from the hotel's recently restored Rolls- Royce fleet, and the legendary Lamborghini Miura previously owned by Don Miura himself.
Visitors will be the first in the region to see the 2018 Rolls-Royce Dawn Black Badge and 2018 Ferrari Portofino.
Additionally, innovative electric car prototypes created by the students from Nanyang Technological University will be displayed at One Fullerton.
And finally for the first time in Singapore, visitors can also view the largest display of cars owned by His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar, Sultan and Sovereign Ruler of the State and Territory of Johor Darul Ta'zim.
Cavaliere Giovanni Viterale, General Manager, The Fullerton Heritage, had this to add, "As one of the most iconic colonial buildings in Singapore, The Fullerton Building has been preserved with the highest form of recognition for its national significance. Likewise, the Fullerton Concours d’Elegance represents the pinnacle in automotive heritage and excellence, celebrating the best in collector and car design."
"The event will be a fitting showcase that not only pays tribute to the heritage of the Grand Dame, but also celebrates the building’s continued relevance in bringing the community together and creating shared memories."
