Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

  • 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible

    I'll start this off by saying I'm a massive fan of most things Mopar. Additionally, I love watching those with many dollars available to them spend those dollars on all manner of vehicles that cross any number of the many auction blocks. This went down in grand fashion recently in Monterey. Yes, it was car week in Northern California, and high rollers were rolling in to buy wheels in which to roll out of town once the money dust settled. There's one car that hit the auction block, however, that I simply can't get excited for. ALSO SEE: Dodge SRT Hellcats And HEMIs Could Die In 2019 A 1970...

    Whether the Vulcano Titanium will get a limited production run remains to be seen, and it's looking less likely with comments from its designers that the car was envisaged purely as a technical showcase.

  • Galpin Rocket Speedster concept, 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

    Last year’s Galpin Rocket proved to be such a hit that the people behind the 725-horsepower muscle car, Galpin Auto Sports and Henrik Fisker, have followed it up with a convertible version. Called the Galpin Rocket Speedster, the car is on show this weekend at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Still a concept, the car will likely see some form of limited production in the ensuing year, just like its coupe sibling. In fact, interested buyers can already place an order through Galpin’s own Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] dealership in Los Angeles or through one of several...

  • BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R concept, 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

    They say styling is a subjective thing, but given the comments our original post on the reveal of BMW’s 3.0 CSL Hommage during May’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este generated, it’s safe to say that the automaker’s designers had got it wrong. But were we all just a bit too hasty? We ask this because at this week’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, BMW has rolled out an updated version that’s much easier on the eyes. The updated version is called the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R, with the “R” signifying that the latest design honors...
