For four days in August, connoisseurs and enthusiasts from around the world converge on the Monterey Peninsula to celebrate the ultimate in automotive design, engineering and camaraderie among fellow aficionados.
The weekend starts with The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering. Since its inception, it has combined a lush setting on a golf course nestled against the Santa Lucia mountain range with exceptional cuisine and the finest examples of vintage sporting automobiles seen during the week. Sponsors provide today’s cream-of-the-crop luxury cars to be sampled by guests on local roads, and those who wish can also test their mettle on the Land Rover Experience Driving School off-road course.
The event’s worldwide reputation is confirmed by its inclusion as a finalist in the Motoring Event of the Year category for the 2014 International Historic Motoring Awards. This year we witnessed to the unveil of the highly anticipated Lamborghini Centenario Roadster. Some of the most acclaimed cars on display include the darker and bolder Rolls-Royce Black Badge, the 2.9 million dollar Bugatti Chiron as well as the first SUV by the British powerhouse Bentley.
The weekend is also famous for the exclusive Manufacturer’s Houses were owners can gather to experience the finest hospitality while enjoying their favorite cars. The houses are a perfect opportunity for the manufacturer’s to showcase what their brands represent and how they treat their clients.
Aston Martin showcased in the scenic Carmel-by-the-sea, a new pop-up concept that brings enthusiasts through the journey of what it takes to build James Bond’s car.
Rolls-Royce hosted a chic, trendy social gathering in a magnificent $60 million dollar chateau-inspired estate. The house featured an impressive library and reading room that brought to mind scenes out of the Great Gatsby. The mood was elegant yet exciting, in which you could marvel at the breathtaking environment while enjoying a cocktail and casually conversing amongst friends.
Bentley hosted their waterfront event themed after a yacht club at the Beach Club Dining Room. It was a formal gathering filled with food and drinks where the clients could discuss everything they had experienced throughout the event in an elegant and flowing environment.
The auctions were filled with exciting moments featuring rare prototypes, special editions, collectors cars and more going for equally exciting price tags.
The pinnacle of all events is the Pebble Beach Concours D-Elegance which took place on Sunday.
Once each year in August, 200 of the most prized collector cars in the world roll onto what is often called the best finishing hole in golf—the famed 18th fairway of 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.
Originally a small social event paired with a road race through the pine and cypress forests of Pebble Beach, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance has grown into the top-ranking collector car competition in the world.
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.
