Hello there & Happy Friday! Cristina, here once again to share some fun tidbits with all those automobile enthusiasts. This coming August is Pebble Beach’s Annual Concours d’Elegance. What is Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance you might ask?…Well let me tell you….
Once each year in August about 200 of the most prized collector cars and motorcycles in the world roll onto the fairway of what is often called the best finishing hole in golf — the famed eighteenth at Pebble Beach Golf Links. Tire meets turf and transformation occurs: the stage is set for one of the most competitive events in the automotive world. The occasion is the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
Originally a small social event paired with a road race through the pine and cypress forests of Pebble Beach, the Pebble Beach Concours has grown into the top-ranking collector car competition in the world. People from all over the globe come to compete in or simply witness and enjoy the Concours here at Pebble Beach.
The Concours is not a contest of speed, but of elegance. Automobiles and motorcycles are judged for their historical accuracy, their technical merit and their style—and the best garner reward and recognition.
This year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance will feature the following marques and special classes:
• Designs by Carrozzeria Touring
• Postwar Cunninghams
• Mercury Customs
• British Prewar Sports Cars
• Lincoln Continental 75th Anniversary
• Shelby GT350 Mustang 50th Anniversary
Thousands of enthusiasts will be on hand to celebrate the collector and concept cars at the 2015 Concours and enjoy the company of others who share their passion.
