Yesterday saw the final event of Monterey Car Week, the world class Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance! It’s the most prestigious Concours event on the calender and it attracted a similarly prestigious entry list. We sent a photographer to get a gallery of photos.
This years event saw a coach-built 1928 Mercedes-Benz 680S Saoutchik Torpedo take the coveted best-in-show award. It features a 6.8-liter supercharged engine with between 200 and 300hp and a Ferdinand Porsche chassis. It’s one of three similar Torpedo bodies designed by Jacques Saoutchik. This particular car spent 30 years in storage before receiving a total restoration.
Distinguished judges included the head of Porsche Design Michael Mauer, ex-BMW designer Chris Bangle, Nissan designer Shiro Nakamura and Sir Stirling Moss. Plenty of other winners emerged from the thirty classes. In the gallery you’ll see a diverse collection including a 1957 Ferrari 250 GT LWB Scaglietti Berlinetta and a 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 Competition Roadster. Enjoy the photos!
