  • One-off Jaguar XK120 by Pininfarina restored
    The rarest Jaguar ever made has been restored

Absolutely, but there's one XK120 that has it beat. It's a one-off XK120 with a body built by Pininfarina and it officially bowed at the Pebble Beach...

With a final sale price of $22.6 million, this 1956 DBR1 Roadster has become the most expensive British car in the world. What makes this particular Aston Martin so sought after? To start, only five were ever made to compete in the World Sportscar Championship endurance series. In fact, this is chassis number 01 and it also happens to be the same car that won the Nürburgring 1,000 Kilometer race in 1959. Built...

  • Fuchsia McLaren 720S by MSO

    Pebble Beach hosts hundreds of outrageous automobiles, but we doubt there will be any other car finished in a hue quite like this fuchsia McLaren 720S. McLaren Special Operations (MSO) undertook the project to build this bespoke 720S commissioned by enthusiast Michael Fux. Fux is an entrepreneur with a serious penchant for one-off cars. He's previously commissioned a McLaren 12C in McLaren Orange, a 12C Spider in a unique purple and a McLaren P1 in an unusual green hue. The fuchsia shade seen here is by far the most extreme of his commissioned McLarens, though. In fact, the color even has a...

    Porsche cars from all eras are rising in value at a brisk pace. Certain 911 Carreras from the 1970s can fetch high six- and even low seven-figure sums.

    Infiniti's plan for the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance requires a bit of a walk—and we don't mean on the lawn. “It started as a simple thought—what if we found a car, down at the Southern tip of Japan, buried deep in a barn, hidden from all eyes for 70 years? What if in...
