Our Best of Show Winners
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.
Pebble Beach Road Race Winners
The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance began in tandem with the Pebble Beach Road Races on November 5, 1950—and this year’s 70th celebration will gather all five of the winning cars on the showfield.
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.
Lamborghini Countach 50th Anniversary
This year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the jaw-dropping Lamborghini Countach LP500 concept with a very special class that will be the first to showcase some of the most important Countach models ever made—from the earliest surviving prototype to the last Countach built.
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.
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.
Led by Renzo Rivolta and then his son Piero, Iso made elegant and technical performance cars from 1953 to 1974.
La Carrera Panamericana
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.
