1934 Voisin C-25 Aerodyne is 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Best of Show

Article by Christian A., on August 24, 2011

At the 61st Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance last Sunday, the 1934 Voisin C-25 Aerodyne of Peter and Merle Mullin from Los Angeles was awarded Best of Show. The event was held on the 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links. Proceeds from ticket sales, sponsorships, auctions and raffles helped contribute at least $1 million to charity for the sixth consecutive year.

Participants from the principality of Monaco, the District of Columbia, 14 countries and 30 states brought their prized vehicles to the Monterey Peninsula in California for judging in 29 classes.

The French-made Voisin has been hailed the best, which is a particularly gratifying achievement for Peter Mullin, who is a self-described “French car guy.”

Mullin, a philanthropist and financial services entrepreneur, shared that winning with the Voisin is the most “special, significant, rewarding thing” that has happened to him, second only to his wedding. He added that Voisin interior is going to last long and it is one of a kind since the fabric can’t be printed and has to be loomed.

This is the first time that Mullin won the Pebble Beach Concours Best of Show in 27 appearances at the annual classic vehicle event.

The other vehicles nominated for Best of Show were a 1929 Bentley Speed Six owned by Daniel Sielecki from Capital, Argentina and a 1938 Talbot-Lago T150-C owned by Richard Stephens from Auburn, Calif.

Concours Chairman Sandra Button shared that the Voisin is “an unexpected winner,” as it is a four-door closed vehicle, but the vehicle’s remarkable attention to detail made it stand out during judging and “it became a real crowd pleaser."
