Palm Springs, California – DiMora Motorcar will display the DiMora Vicci 6.2 Emperor Convertible at the exotic Concorso Italiano event in Monterey Bay, California, on Saturday, August 20. The car will be located next to the Highline Autos Pavilion at the Black Horse Golf Course, 1 McClure Way, Seaside. Spectators attending the annual automotive event will have an opportunity to view the hand-built automobile and meet DiMora Motorcar founder and chief designer, Sir Alfred J. DiMora.
Each of the 25 cars in the limited edition DiMora Vicci 6.2 Emperor series features an 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. The DiMora Vicci is also available with a supercharger option, offering 556-hp to those looking for additional power under the hood.
“We love attending the many Pebble Beach festivities,” said DiMora. “The exotic Italian automobiles on display at Concorso Italiano are only of the highest caliber, and we are honored to have our DiMora Vicci 6.2 featured this year next to the Highline Autos Pavilion.”
The DiMora Vicci 6.2 Emperor blends North American technology with Asian art.
In the past, automobiles and art have been excellent investments throughout the collectors’ financial world. 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.
“We are pleased to have the DiMora Vicci 6.2 on the cover of our magazine that will be distributed throughout the many events around Pebble Beach,” said Mr. Brian Graff, President of Highline Autos.
