Concours Supercars retail store - Click above for high-res gallery
Back in the summer of 2006, Saleen was flying high. They were just about to start production of the Parnelli Jones Mustang and had just launched an automotive retail store in Irvine, CA. Just three years, later things are much different. Saleen Inc. shut down the store more than a year ago, sold off most of its assets, and closed up shop back in February. We assumed the notion of a stand-alone automotive retail store in Southern California was dead.
Enter Concours Supercars. Co-run by the Concours Motorcar Company, which deals in buying, selling, and consigning investment grade cars, and Techco International, an aftermarket parts company, the new retail store fills the void left in the space vacated by Saleen. The 6000 square-foot store now features a wide range of apparel from manufacturers like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, and Shelby, as well as performance parts for the American sports cars from Techco. Some of the items from Saleen remain, like the racing simulators featuring the Saleen S7, and we're told that a variety of cars will circulate through the displays in the store.
If you're in the Southern California area, you can check out the new store at the Irvine Spectrum shopping center (111 Fortune Drive, Suite 905) in Irvine. Otherwise, check out the high-res gallery below.
