Art: 24 Karat Ferrari 250 GTO to be unveiled at Pebble Beach

Submitted by on August 17, 2011

Award winning artist Dante will reveal his newest sculpture, a Ferrari 250 GTO at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California. The US debut of the sculpture will coincide with a special display of rare Ferrari 250 GTO cars which the Concours has assembled from all over the world. “One of the most important reasons for my coming to Pebble Beach is the celebration of the Ferrari 250 GTO and the number of original cars being shown. It is my favorite car of all time,” said Dante.

Dante Rubli is based in Switzerland and has been producing works of art for twenty-five years. Working with a variety of textiles ranging from wood and steel to gold and platinum, Dante has created custom furniture, sculptures and even automobiles for celebrities and collectors the world over.

The highly anticipated third piece in Dante’s Iconic Sports Car series follows the Aston-Martin DB5 and Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing. Each design in the series is limited to ten exceptional pieces and can be supplied in traditional gold, white gold, silver and a selection of other luxury finishes.

“The iconic car sculptures are my tribute to the men who made the original cars: they were artists,” said Dante. As a Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance sponsor, a Design by Dante tent will be in position Thursday, August 18 through Sunday, August 21 on Peter Hay Hill adjacent to the Concours site in RetroAuto Plaza, amidst fellow Concours sponsors such as The Wall Street Journal, Porsche and Infiniti to name a few.

Dante will personally be on hand to meet with media and special guests.
