Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

  • 1964 Ferrari 275 GTB 'Short Nose'

    On both the track and auction block, Ferraris are known for incredible performance. And over two dozen examples, spanning much of the storied company's existence, will be up for sale during auction house Mecum’s main event during this month's Monterey Car Week. Ferrari's modern era will be represented by cars including a 2013 458 Italia, a 2011 599 GTB Alonso Final Edition, and a three-pedal 2003 575M. But with estimates ranging between $270,000 and $500,000, those models, desirable as they may be, represent the relative low end of the scale. Though there is a 1989 328 GTS—being...

  • Bentley 'Team Blower'
    Bentley 'Team Blower' Le Mans Racer Headed To Pebble Beach

    Its driver's seat is hardly the lap of luxury. There's nary a stitch of diamond-quilted leather, and at speed, it'll hardly be a whisper-quiet womb. But the classic Bentley that will be displayed at this year's Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach is a key piece of the company's...

  • Lamborghini Veneno

    Mercedes-Benz To Honor Sir Stirling Moss At Pebble Beach With Two Cars

    Earlier this year, Mercedes-Benz shot a 360-degree film to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Sir Stirling Moss' historic 1955 Mille Miglia victory. While the legendary 1,000-mile race is no more, Moss' time of 10 hours, 7 minutes and 48 seconds remains unbeaten. To honor the world-renowned...

  • 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450 AMG 4Matic
    Mercedes-Benz Says No To Water Injection Systems

    The automotive world can seem like a grand illustration of monkey see, monkey do. While there are always government regulations—see turbos and hybrid systems—to consider, there's plenty of terminology and tech, like four-door "coupes," and fake engine noise, which spreads among...

  • 1993 Comptech Racing Spice Acura GTP Lights race car

    Acura is prepping for what will surely be a busy Monterey Car Week taking place next month. The automaker plans to show off some important vehicles both old and new at a number of the many events that occur during this annual crazy car week. There will be brand presence at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering as well as at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, McCall's Motorworks Revival, and the Carmel-By-The-Sea Concours on the Avenue. There should be no surprise that Acura will have a handful of its latest NSX supercars on hand. The highly anticipated machine will make many appearances...

  • 1968 Maserati Ghibli Spyder
    Original Maserati Ghibli Spyder Prototype Heads To Auction

    Today, the Maserati Ghibli is a mid-size sports sedan that slots neatly below the larger Quattroporte and its more sporting, two-door GranTurismo and GranTurismo convertible siblings.

  • 50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe
    Shelby Announces 50th Anniversary Daytona Coupe

    The original Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe is the stuff of legend. Just six of them were built between 1964 and 1965, and in ’65 the car helped secure the Constructors’ title in the FIA World Sportscar Championship, making Shelby the first American constructor to win a title on the...

  • The Pinnacle Portfolio
    This $65 Million Car Collection Is Everything You've Dreamed Of: Video

    Yes, the Pinnacle Portfolio is the most expensive car collection ever to hit the auction block. But that's an awfully crass way to describe this anthology of automotive excellence. After all, a fleet of gold-plated, ruby-encrusted Dartz Prombrons could have achieved that distinction. And while the...

  • 1987 Porsche 959 Komfort - Image via Bonhams

    It was only a month ago that we told you about a 1988 Porsche 959 finished in black that would be going under the hammer at one of the auctions taking place during August’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Now we have word of a red 1987 example, another Komfort model, that will soon be making its way down to Monterey. That’s rather impressive considering there were just over 300 959s built during the late ‘80s, and only around 50 of these are believed to have made it over to the U.S. That’s because the model was never federalized—apparently Porsche...

  • 1986 Ferrari Testarossa from ‘Miami Vice’
    'Miami Vice' Ferrari Testarossa Hitting The Block In Monterey

    Miami Vice was the sexy, violent, cocaine-centric epitome of 1980s television.

Initially...
