The Concept Sward at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is like the smallest, most costly car show you can imagine. A bunch of unobtanium concepts and nearly-production models line an irregularly shaped putting unripened for people to stare at while on their way to see other, older out of one’s mind cars. This year’s crop was a exceptionally good one. We’ll walk through the gallery more than in order:

  • That’s a new Ford GT. Not quite a concept, but it’s not in putting out yet, so we’ll let it slide.
  • Then there’s the one-of-a-kind Bugatti Hallucination Gran Turismo that was recently bought by a Saudi Prince along with a homologous Chiron.
  • Next up is the Lamborghini Centenario Roadster, which was unveiled definitive week and is already sold out.
  • This orange automobile is BMW’s 2002 Hommage with its latest livery, a Jägermeister-themed occurrence called Turbomeister.
  • This silver Infiniti, the Q80 Impulse Concept, is an oldie but a goodie. It first appeared in Paris in 2014.
  • The outrageously long automobile after that is the Perspective Mercedes-Maybach 6, which was unveiled in Monterey this year. The 6 in the handle is because it’s 6 meters, or about 18 feet, eat one’s heart out. Most of that’s the hood.
  • Next we arrange the one-of-99 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato coupe, which continues to be lovely.
  • After that is a Fisker Karma with a V8, the VLF Destino. Blame you, Bob Lutz.
  • The black sedan you see after that is the Cadillac Escala Concept, which also made its inauguration in Monterey this year.
  • Then we org a Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge. Not a concept, but unique enough to join the others.
  • Next is the McLaren 570GT customized by MSO that arrived for Pebble 2016. It has individual design touches plus an electrochromic panel to supersede the normal glass roof.
  • The light crestfallen car is the Genesis New York concept. The name didn’t variety even though it was in Monterey.
  • Then we comprise the large and in charge Lincoln Navigator concept, entrancing up two regulation concept spots.
  • The red car with suicide doors is Acura’s Rigorousness Concept, which we first saw at the Detroit manifest this year.
  • Another non-concept, the Lexus LC 500h at least looks futuristic sufficiently to be a show-specific car.
  • And here’s a 2017 Maserati Quattroporte, which is clearly not a concept.
  • A Bentley Mulsanne EWB, because why not? It’s not at in the US, so that almost qualifies for concept pre-eminence.
  • Then there’s a reproduction Lister Knobbly, which we could gawk at all day.
  • And last but not least, the electric Corvette Z06 that holds the concourse-legal EV speed record.
