http://www.autobytel.com The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is an annual gathering of the world's most prized classic cars held every year on the 18th fairway of the world famous Pebble Beach golf course in Monterey, CA. The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance traditionally marks the end of Classic Car Week in Monterey, a celebration of fine automobiles and is a must for any automotive aficionado. Everything from turn of the century antiques to championship winning vintage race cars make their way around the magnificent 17 Mile Drive in order to compete in the Concours.
Concours d'Elegance literally means contest of elegance and beauty. Pebble Beach though is a lot more than just a classic car show. There are driving events, auctions, exhibitions, concepts, and more. Of course the main event happens to be the show itself and judges base their criteria on a few factors including: correctness, level of quality, restoration, detailing, and the level of historical value the car brings. Most of the cars on the field are usually expensive or of historical relevance.
Pebble Beach is a fascinating display of great exotic vehicles from around the world. Not only does it serve as a three dimensional lesson in automotive history, but more often than not manufacturers take advantage of the opportunity and display current models alongside future vehicles tying the past and present together.
