Why is Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance such a big deal?

Collectors and manufacturers adore the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance but why is it such a big deal?

First of all, this isn’t a car show, it’s a ‘Concours d’Elegance’, which is French for ‘Competition of Elegance’.

And that’s exactly what it is.


You can usually find the latest and newest ‘normal’ cars.

Meanwhile, a Concours d’Elegance is all about excitement and looks.

Whenever there’s a new car, a new occasion to mark or an anniversary, big brands want to celebrate at the Concours.

In fact, Bugatti celebrated its 70th birthday at the event.

The Concours was founded in 1950 and the show has taken place every year, typically in August, ever since.

This year we’ve already seen the new Bentley Mulliner Batur, the convertible Maserati MC20 Cielo and the Aston Martin DBR22.

In addition to that, manufacturers also showcase their incredible concept cars.

At Pebble Beach 2022, you’ll find the new DeLorean, the long-awaited successor to the Lexus LFA and the spectacular Lincoln L100.

So, to celebrate the event, we’ve rounded up some of the coolest drops unveiled at the event in recent years.

From the Audi Skysphere to the Bugatti Bolide, Pebble Beach has been home to some of the most exciting releases in the world.

Audi Skysphere

The Skysphere is one of three concept cars introduced by Audi about a year ago.

It is a sleek, streamlined coupe with self-driving capabilities and a cabin that looks like a hotel lounge.

Bugatti Bolide

The Bolide is probably the most insane Bugatti ever. And that’s saying something.

It is powered by Bugatti’s signature W16 engine and delivers a whopping 1,825 hp.

It makes a glass-shattering sound. Check it out in Supercar Blondie’s video above.

Aston Martin Valkyrie Spider

The Valkyrie Spider is the open-top version of the crazy hypercar that Aston Martin developed with Red Bull Racing.

Just like the coupe model, its 1,106-hp V12 gives it a top speed in excess of 250 mph.

And all that with the wind in your hair.

BMW Vision M Next

Even though the production version of this crazy concept will probably never see the light of day, this remains one of the coolest BMWs ever.

An electric 600-hp bullet that looks like it was designed in the year 3022.

Karma SC1 Vision

Remember the Fisker Karma? The brand made a big comeback a couple of years ago with a new roofless prototype called the SC1.

It’s a 2,000-hp speedster-style vehicle powered by electricity.
