Monterey 2012: Highlights of Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance 2012

Highlights of Pebble Beach Concours dElegance 2012

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!
