2021 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Featured Marques & Classes
Take a walk through seven decades of Pebble Beach Concours history with a special exhibition of Best of Show winners. Witness a reunion of historic race-winning Porsche 917s and a gathering of delectable Talbot-Lago Grand Sports. Trace the sculpted lines of Pininfarina’s much-lauded designs, enjoy a glimpse of some of the earliest electric vehicles, and listen to the roar of Harry Miller’s mighty engines. And there’s more: the creations of Iso Rivolta and the competitors of the Carrera Panamericana will also be displayed. The 2021 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance will feature the following marques and special classes among others.
90 Years of Pininfarina
This popular Italian design firm built the bodies for some of the best-loved Ferraris, Alfa Romeos and Maseratis, among others. It is now owned by Mahindra, and a related firm builds electric cars.
Porsche scored its first overall wins at Le Mans in 1970 and 1971 thanks to the model 917, which is featured in Steve McQueen’s movie Le Mans.
Led by Renzo Rivolta and then his son Piero, Iso made elegant and technical performance cars from 1953 to 1974.
Early Electric Vehicles
Electric vehicles first appeared as far back as the mid-19th Century and for a time it was thought that electric technology might hold sway over the gas combustion engine.
Known as the most dangerous race in the world, the Carrera Panamericana was a border-to-border open road race run from 1950 to 1954 in Mexico.
A mechanical genius, Harry Miller’s cars won the Indy 500 ten times, and his engines (or Miller-based Offenhauser engines) won another 29 times.
70 Years of Best of Show
To celebrate our 70th anniversary we are bringing back several of our Best of Show winners, along with many of the owners who shared them here.
Talbot-Lago Grand Sport
The Talbot-Lago Grand Sport was built for both speed and luxury. As such, it was one of the most powerful and beautiful production cars of its day.
