Pebble Beach 2012 Preview

It is almost that time again—time to indulge in the latest exotic auto offerings at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance! Just once per year, on the third Sunday in August, hundreds of prized collector automobiles and motorbikes rev up the 18th fairway at Pebble Beach. This year, the luxury car event lands on August 19th.

“The best car show in the world.”– Jay Leno

Pebble Beach began as a liter-sized social gathering/road race for collectors to compete and show-off their prized possessions. Now, the event attracts legions of luxury and collector cars packing a variety of liters beneath the hoods—it is the top ranked collector car show on earth. 

Concours is not simply a contest of speed–it is a battle of overall auto excellence. Participants are judged in key areas, including historical accuracy, technical merit and style.

Tire meets turf and Pebble Beach is transformed into an auto extravaganza

The New York Times sums up this auto show neatly and effectively:
“The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance has often been called the World Series or Super Bowl of the automotive universe, but those descriptions sell this celebration short. If anything, it’s more like the Olympics.”
