The 2019 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance
You’ve seen them on Highway 1 and stopping for lunch in Carmel. Polished to within an inch of their lives, here are the concours cars on the famous 18th Fairway. Tim Scott was up with the seabirds to give you a flavour of this year’s event.
Bentley was hard to miss, providing the eventual winner, Sir Michael Kadoorie’s sensational 1931 Bentley 8 Litre Dual Cowl Sports Tourer by Gurney Nutting. The great British marque was joined by classes for the Lamborghini Miura, historic hot rods and all the usual pre- and post-War deliciousness you expect at Pebble: Ferraris, Preservation Classes, American Classics and so on.
Another centenary was recognised with a special class for Zagato-bodied cars, judged by Andrea Zagato himself. The category was split into two: pre-War (Maserati V4 and Alfa 8C) and post-War (Lancia, Alfas, Fiat 8V, an Aston Martin DB4 GT, one-off Lamborghini 350 GTZ and a Bristol).
Over at Casa Ferrari, Ferrari North America laid on a stupendous selection of the best competition cars (above) from Maranello.
We present a selection of the cars that made Pebble Beach another unforgettable event.
