Car enthusiasts are revved up for a four-wheeled event that has no South Florida peer. The Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance is not only a community mainstay, it’s the fastest-growing Concours in the nation and the world’s largest for charity. Lifestyle Media Group is a sponsor of the 13th edition of this three-day ode to vintage and classic vehicles, which is set for Feb. 22-24.

The Concours, which benefits the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County, kicks off on a Friday night with the duPont Registry Live Hangar Party at Atlantic Aviation at the Boca Raton Airport. Expect select tastings from more than 20 of South Florida’s finest restaurants, accompanied by a dazzling array of exotic cars, custom motorcycles, extravagant boats and private jets.

On Saturday night, the gala dinner and show at Boca Raton Resort & Club includes the presentation of the Annual Automotive Lifetime Achievement Awards to Dietmar Exler, president and CEO at Mercedes-Benz USA, and Ryan Hunter-Reay, winner of the 2014 Indianapolis 500. During the silent auction and action-packed live auction, attendees will bid on luxury items such as over-the-top vacation packages, fine jewelry and more. The night concludes with a performance by comedian Jay Leno (who also will be at the Friday hangar party).

The weekend concludes with the main event, as 175 of the finest collector cars and motorcycles descend on the Boca Resort. An expert panel (including Leno as a celebrity guest judge) will arbitrate some of the finest automobiles and motorcycles ever built. Fittingly, an assortment of gourmet food and wine will be served. Not to miss: an exceptional collection of Bentleys in honor of the premier luxury automaker’s notable 100th year. Start your engines. (bocaratonconcours.com)
