It will be joined at the flagship event by another Bugatti, the Chiron-previewing Vision Gran Turismo concept.

    BMW trotted out a surprise concept car at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este back in May. It was called the 2002 Homage, and it started out life as a standard M2 before being completely transformed. So detailed were the changes that only the wide stance and roof gave away the donor car’s...

  • McLaren 570GT by MSO concept, 2016 Monterey Car Week

    McLaren promised to bring a new concept developed by its MSO personalization department to Monterey Car Week currently on in Monterey, California. While we had hoped the new concept would be the recently revealed 688 HS or even the rumored 3-seater, it turns out the car is simply a bespoke version of the 570GT which incidentally is making its own North American debut in Monterey.

The debut will take place during Monterey Car Week and we’ve been told the 570GT will be joined by another new McLaren, a concept specially prepared by the McLaren Special Operations division.

Given the event's penchant to celebrate everything pre-war we're not sure what BMW has in store, but few of the automaker's designs are as instantly recognizable and celebrated as the M1. The last we heard anything about an M1 successor was several years ago...
