The 60th Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance® enjoyed a great turnout with competitors from 33 states and 14 countries showing off 250 of their prized automobiles on the California's Monterey Peninsula for judging in 29 classes.

A 1933 Delage D8S De Villars Roadster owned by The Patterson Collection in Louisville, Kentucky, was named Best of Show at this the 60th Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance®

Alfa Romeo, a featured marque at the 2010 Concours, had the largest presence on the field, including seven vehicles shipped from the Alfa Romeo Museum in Arese, Italy. The 75th anniversary of Jaguar was also featured, as was Pierce-Arrow. Special classes included a focus on the 50th anniversary of the Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, the centennial of the Indianapolis 500, Hot Rod lakesters and Bonneville racers, American Prewar Road and Racing Motorcycles and Ghia-designed vehicles.

Roger Corman along with Gregory Berkin, made a cameo appearance in the media tent before the event. Mr. Corman discussed his production of the classic road-racing film, "The Fast & Furious" (1954) of the Pebble Beach Road Races and Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Gregory Berkin is the director/producer of the feature film series The Pebble Beach Experience which also highlights the original road racing which started in1950. It was the SCCA road race on the Pebble Beach tree lined roads that started all which is now one of the worlds greatest showing of cars.

When Roger Corman was asked why he chose to make a film about racing for his second movie, Roger explained that he had owned an MGTD in collage and had done some sports car racing in Europe after he had left collage.

Also on the field was Lilli Bertone, widow of Nuccio, who has taken control of her family design house. The Bertone designed Alfa Romeo Pandion, which was on the lawn, was designed as a statement of the Alfa Romeo company's commitment to the future.

The stunning Alfa Romeo Bertone Pandion was an outstanding feature on the green, sitting out against the Bay of Carmel.

The 2010 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance pays tribute to Alfa Romeo, celebrating their centennial. Showcase vehicles ranging from a 1910 A.L.F.A. 24 HP to the just-unveiled Alfa Romeo Pandion show car created by Bertone. Also a display of rarely seen cars from the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo (the Alfa Romeo Museum) in Arese, Italy, 1938 8C 2900 B Lungo; 1938 Gran Premio Tipo 158 "Alfetta".

The 2010 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance®
marks the 60th year of this grand event. With Jaguar marking its 75th anniversary the two icons of automotive excellence are again together and forever intertwined. Jaguar has always been an important car taking many high profile positions during the Concours's 60 years. It is now the 2010's featured marque.

With Jaguar in many ways taking us back to the events earliest days, Chairman Emeritus Jules "J." Heumann noted, "The earliest Pebble Beach Concours had a special feeling; it was all new, and everyone participated with great gusto and style, People brought carpets and silver candelabras for picnicking and it wasn't uncommon to see folks wearing cutaway coats and morning trousers." Mr. Heumann has attended every Pebble Beach Concours to date.

The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance®, in its 60th year will host a Hot Rod Lakesters and Bonneville Racers class for cars built and raced between 1927 and 1953.

The hot rod, is a uniquely American form of automotive expression and the desire to go as fast as possible was expressed in the dry lakes racing. More... -pdf

Other classes honored the 75th anniversary of Jaguar and the centennial of Alfa Romeo. Also featured is Pierce-Arrow, and the Italian designer Ghia. Special classes highlight the 50th anniversary of the Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, and the centennial of the Indianapolis 500. Recently added classes showcased Prewar American Motorcycles.

The August 15 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance display hadeight Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinettas to honor the car's 50th anniversary. The legendary race car driver Sir Stirling Moss drove a 250 GT SWB Berlinetta to four wins on racing circuits across Europe in 1961.

"It was such a civilized car, that Rob Walker fitted the one I drove with a radio. This allowed me to tune in to the BBC and listen to not only my race, but also to hear how my competitors were doing!"

The Ferrari 250GT model is a widely use moniker in Ferrari's road-going-racecars with the 250 GT, Short Wheelbase Berlinetta, being considered by many, to be the ultimate version. Full Story... -pdf

The recently restored Lotus-Ford 38/1, owned by The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan, made its North American premiere at the 2010 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. The Lotus-Ford, one of the most significant vehicles in American racing history, was on display for the first time in the United States since its restoration.
