Score it a great day for lovers of vintage French four-wheeled style: the Peter and Merle Mullins 1934 Avions Voisin C-25 Aerodyne has taken the Best in Show award at the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
The meticulous restoration of the car is only part of the beauty: from the fender struts to the trim details to the incredible interior print, the Mullins' C-25 Aerodyne is simply a beautiful car, however you measure it.
Competing in the European Classic 1932-1937 class, the Voisin faced stiff competition from Lagonda, Railton, Talbot-Lago and more--and that's before you look to the other classes, with impressive, ultra-rare cars in various states of restoration or historic patina. Taking the win out of this group is an achievement, and one the C-25 Aerodyne deserves.
