Hands down one of the most exclusive, uberluxe events to close out summer, the bridge returns for a fourth year. You won't want to miss it.
“We’ve put together our greatest collection of vehicles yet, integrated into creative groupings that reflect not just historical rivalries, but vignettes that juxtapose vintage and modern design elements and colors,” says event cofounder Jeffrey Einhorn.
Vintage car lovers, exotic timepiece fanatics, golf enthusiasts and art celebrators all unite at one of the most anticipated events of the Hamptons season—and it clearly appeals to the masses, though not all are invited to partake. Returning for its fourth year, The Bridge’s exhibition will be bigger and more extravagant than ever before, displaying nearly 200 rarely seen vintage automobiles. “The number of cars has increased to the point where the entire 18th fairway is covered,” says co-founder Robert Rubin, who founded the highlight event alongside Jeffrey Einhorn and Shamin Abas. Taking place at its namesake golf club, the event coincides with the September Art Show, curated by Marlborough Contemporary’s Max Levai and displaying outdoor sculptures, oversized paintings and leading historical and contemporary works as a way of merging the art and automotive worlds. And for a third consecutive year, Richard Mille returns as the event sponsor, bringing its newest timepieces to the course. Another major highlight includes the exclusive debut of Aston Martin’s new Valhalla, the third midengine hypercar set to be featured in the forthcoming James Bond film. Other supercar brands including Bugatti, which celebrates its 110-year anniversary with a retrospective display, and firsttime sponsor Lamborghini, among others like RollsRoyce Motor Cars North America and Automobili Pininfarina, presenting its limited-edition hyper GT, the Batista. And for a big shebang, the exotic vintage cars are the stuff of legends—think the likes of the 1909 Isotta Fraschini FENC, 1948 Tucker and 1963 Aston Martin DB4 MkV Drophead SS—and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
