Concours d'Elegance

Since 1950, Pebble Beach has been host to what is considered by many to be the finest exhibition of showcars in the world. Held each August on the 18th Fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links, the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is an annual meeting of rare and antique automobiles, international automotive superstars, and motorcar devotees from around the globe.

As the name suggests, the Concours d'Elegance differs from many motor-themed events in that it is not a contest of speed, but rather, of elegance.  Automobiles and motorcycles are judged based on their mechanical design, historical significance, and overall style. The competition is steep, and as such, only the finest vehicles are chosen as recipients of rewards. Television personality Jay Leno said it best, “The Pebble Beach Concours is the best. It’s the one that can give a car a pedigree. God forbid I should ever have to sell one of my cars, but winning your class, or even coming in second or third there, gives your car a pedigree that no other show can approach."

The Pebble Beach Concours is unique in that both classic and modern cars are featured, including the latest concept designs. The majority of cars seen will be classic cars, though many modern cars are showcased and auctioned off. The latest concept designs from manufacturers such as Mercedes, Bugatti, Lamborghini, and Ferrari will also be present.

The Pebble Beach Concours is a car lover’s dream. Whether you are a fan of classic automobiles, or more modern ones, the Pebble Beach Concours is one event that you do not want to miss. Tickets are available for purchase online through the Concours store at
