Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, 2013 Prologue

Every year, people from all over the world bring one or more of their nearly priceless possessions to the lawns at Pebble Beach. The views of the surrounding area and the magnificent cars make it one of the most fantastic settings in the world. It is a day of the "Automobile". Started out as a small car show and part of a sports car race The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is now a world class event and crowning conclusion to a host of car gathering in and around the Monterey Bay Area each mid of August.

This year 260 historic automobiles will be on the lawn at The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance and the show will pay homage to the Simplex automobile. Best sources estimate that just over 1,600 Simplex automobiles were built before the company merged with Crane in 1915, but only 46 are known to survive.

The Pebble Beach Concours show will field road-going vehicles such like the 1914 Simplex 50 HP Holbrook Seven Passenger Touring and sporting models such as the 75 HP Speedster.

Additional marques will receive special attention like cars with Lincoln Custom Coachwork, and Vanvooren Coachwork, also cars from Aston Martin, Lamborghini, the Porsche 911, and the BMW 507.

Back in 1985 the Bugatti Royal display set a precedence that has since evolved into a special showing of current unique examples of automotive designs and concept cars on the openly available lawn in front of the Shops at Pebble Beach. The 2012 event produced 12 such cars for viewing.

But for 2013 there will be more than 20 concepts and new production cars displayed on the event's "concept lawn" in front of the Shops at Pebble Beach.

An unbelievable collection for display is scheduled.
