Artist has fun with serious concours cars

This Car-toon d’Elegance is a light-hearted depiction of the featured cars and distinctive venue of the Ault Park Concours d’Elegance. The drawing was done by automotive artist Roger Warrick of Burlington, Ky, noted for his detailed caricatures of cars and people.

In the top left-hand corner, check out the ejection seat from the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 James Bond car. It’s the winner of the “Q ” Award trophy, named for the Bond gadget master.

Cars shown: 1964 Aston Martin DB5 of James Bond 007 fame, 1964 #17 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS, 1927 Rolls Royce Phantom 1, Le Mans winning 1966 #39 Porsche 910, and the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray.

The 2013 Ault Park Concours, now in it’s 39th year, is in Cincinnati on June 9.
