BERN, Switzerland, Sept. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Swiss artist DANTE debuted his 24-Karat suite of Iconic Sports Car sculptures last month to the most influential audience in the global collector car world. "It was wonderful to meet so many car collectors and even music and sports celebrities in America who truly enjoyed my work," said DANTE. Invited guests and hundreds more visited DANTE's display at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance over four-days, standing in amazement as they admired DANTE's glistening gold interpretations of the Aston Martin DB5, Mercedes-Benz 300 SL and Ferrari 250 GTO.
"I'm now working to craft bespoke pieces that offer increased value and gold content for several interested investors," said DANTE. Strong interest in his collectible sculptures, combined with the continuing escalation in gold prices to more than $1,600.00 USD per ounce, has resulted in many requests for solid gold 18-Karat examples. "We're working with our gold specialist to establish the most desirable options. These new pieces will demand extensive time and effort to craft. When finished, they will offer exceptional value and lasting pleasure." said DANTE.
Twenty-one original Ferrari 250 GTOs were displayed during the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, which was fitting, as DANTE's latest addition to his series is a 1:8 scale interpretation of Enzo Ferrari's Masterpiece. "It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life to see these cars on display at the Concours and racing at the track." reflects DANTE.
