Walk along the priciest mini car show in the world. The Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is like the smallest, most expensive car show you can imagine. A bunch of unobtanium concepts and almost-production models line an irregularly shaped putting green for people to stare at while on their way to see other, older insane cars. This year’s crop was a particularly good one.
We’ll walk through the gallery above in order:
- That’s a new Ford GT. Not quite a concept, but it’s not in production yet, so we’ll let it slide.
- Then there’s the one-of-a-kind Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo that was recently bought by a Saudi Prince along with a matching Chiron.
- Next up is the Lamborghini Centenario Roadster, which was unveiled last week and is already sold out.
- This orange automobile is BMW’s 2002 Hommage with its latest livery, a Jägermeister-themed affair called Turbomeister.
- This silver Infiniti, the Q80 Inspiration Concept, is an oldie but a goodie. It first appeared in Paris in 2014.
- The extremely long automobile after that is the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, which was unveiled in Monterey this year. The 6 in the name is because it’s 6 meters, or about 18 feet, long. Most of that’s the hood.
- Next we have the one-of-99 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato coupe, which continues to be beautiful.
- After that is a Fisker Karma with a V8, the VLF Destino. Thank you, Bob Lutz.
- The black sedan you see after that is the Cadillac Escala Concept, which also made its debut in Monterey this year.
- Then we have a Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge. Not a concept, but exclusive enough to join the others.
- Next is the McLaren 570GT customized by MSO that arrived for Pebble 2016. It has special design touches plus an electrochromic panel to replace the normal glass roof.
- The light blue car is the Genesis New York concept. The name didn’t change even though it was in Monterey.
- Then we have the large and in charge Lincoln Navigator concept, taking up two regulation concept spots.
- The red car with suicide doors is Acura’s Precision Concept, which we first saw at the Detroit show this year.
- Another non-concept, the Lexus LC 500h at least looks futuristic enough to be a show-specific car.
- And here’s a 2017 Maserati Quattroporte, which is definitely not a concept.
- A Bentley Mulsanne EWB, because why not? It’s not available in the US, so that almost qualifies for concept status.
- Then there’s a reproduction Lister Knobbly, which we could stare at all day.
- And last but not least, the electric Corvette Z06 that holds the street-legal EV speed record.
