Palm Springs, California – DiMora Motorcar will be showing the DiMora Vicci 6.2 Emperor Convertible at the Desert Concorso on Sunday, November 15th, 2016 in Palm Springs, California. Spectators attending the event will have an opportunity to view the hand-built automobile and meet Palm Springs resident, DiMora Motorcar company founder and car designer, Sir Alfred J. DiMora.
Each of the 25 cars in the limited edition DiMora Vicci 6.2 Emperor series features original artwork by Zen Master Lee Sun-Don in the Great Treasure Gate collection.
“We have been very selective with every aspect of building the Vicci 6.2 from choosing where to strategically place the 24-karat gold inlay to designing the custom wheels, so when it came time to choose the first artist series collaboration, not just any artist would do,” said DiMora. “Although designing luxury automobiles is where my true passion is, I’ve been an art enthusiast for a number of years and knew that Master Lee’s artwork would make for a perfect pairing of art and automobile.”
Pairing a 430-hp GM engine with lightweight carbon DFD construction, the DiMora Vicci 6.2 is hand-built in North America with the finest appointments, from Italian leather interior to Wilton Wool carpeting. It is the first true production rolling art, which makes it even more exclusive and sets DiMora Motorcar apart from other car manufacturers.
"We are pleased to announce that the DiMora Vicci will be on display to guests at Desert Concorso. This truly unique head-turning car was created by Sir Alfred J. DiMora. Enthusiasts are sure to appreciate the artistic elegance of the Vicci," said Mr. Tom McDowell, President of Desert Concorso.
In the past, automobiles and art have been excellent investments throughout the collectors' financial world and without exception, the DiMora Vicci 6.2 has grabbed the attention of both collector communities because it appeals to both demographics. The collaboration of the automobile and original accompanying artwork is expected to increase in value due to its timeless style, artist's limited edition, and elaborate craftsmanship.
