Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

  • Mercedes-Maybach Vision 6

    On the last episode of Mercedes-Maybach meets Pebble Beach, we watched the impossibly long nose and sleek shape stop (foot) traffic. This year, Mercedes is teasing its newest Vision Six concept that they'll show off at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance via an officially released video. We've seen leaked snippets before, which designers have already hinted will be an "icon for the brand." We've heard whispers that the new concept will be a convertible version of the coupe we've already seen but the video doesn't provide many clues. It's possible to deduce by the Vision Six name that it...

  • 2016 Monterey Car Week
    These cars made big bucks in Monterey

    Monterey Car Week is a hotbed for classic cars, many of which are there to go under the hammer. The bidding at this year’s event, which took place in mid-August, was a little more subdued than in recent years, perhaps finally signaling a cooling of the collector car market. Total sales came...

  • 2018 Lexus LC 500, 2016 Detroit Auto Show

    Lexus used Sunday’s 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Monterey, California to show off its upcoming LC coupe. The version on show was the LC 500 V-8 model and on hand to talk about the car was chief engineer Koji Sato. There, he confirmed that the LC 500’s 5.0-liter V-8 would deliver 471 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. That’s up on the 467 hp and 389 lb-ft announced at the car’s 2016 Detroit auto show debut. The boost comes from changes made to the intake and exhaust systems. The changes are part of ongoing developments for the LC ahead of the...

If you are driving the...

    2017 BMW Alpina B7 first drive review: A better BMW

    BMW’s flagship sedan, the 7-Series, has never received the M performance treatment. That’s OK, though—Alpina is here to help. In fact, the small BMW-exclusive tuner company does such a good job of building what is, in effect, an M7 that we doubt BMW could top it. Alpina is a...

  • The world's first Shelby Cobra: CSX 2000

    Carroll Shelby's first-ever Cobra, CSX 2000, set a new record high for an American car when it sold at the RM Sotheby's auction during Monterey Car Week for $13.75 million. The previous record was $11 million for the 1968 Ford GT40 Gulf/Mirage race car that sold in 2012. Shelby created what would become a racing and sports car icon in 1962, when he shoehorned a 260-cubic-inch Ford V-8 engine into the sprightly AC Ace. To be fair, calling the CSX 2000 a strictly American car isn't quite true, as the AC Ace was a British car. Then again, the Ford GT40s were built in England as well, so we're...

  • 2016 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion

    Some have heroes with names like Griffey, Sayers, Butkus, Abdul-Jabaar, and Messier. For cars guys, the names are Gurney, Fullmer, Andretti, Foyt, McLaren, and many more. The difference is you can no longer watch Ken Griffey jack a homer, Kareem Abbul-Jabaar sink a skyhook, or Gale Sayers juke a linebacker. However, at vintage races you can see your heroes drive the cars of their heyday. And if they aren't at the wheel, you can still see those cars going fender-to-fender with iconic cars that they raced so many years ago. CHECK OUT: The Quail at Carmel 2016 features stunning classics, exotic...
