A 1924 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A has taken the top honours at the Pebble Beach Concours, being crowned as the best car of the show.
The stunning Tipo 8A – which has reportedly had only four owners in its lifetime – beat competition coming from additional prestigious classics to win the golden ribbon on the final day of the Concours, which forms part of the Monterey Car Week.
The Pebble Beach Concours also saw the unveiling of some illustrious brand new metal, including two brand new concept cars coming from BMW. The first, the 3.0 CSL Hommage R, is actually the re-imagining of the original 3.0 CSL Hommage concept shown earlier This particular year. The latest edition is actually coloured with BMW’s Motorsport livery, as well as includes a system which projects your vehicle’s speed as well as location onto the helmet visor of the driver.
Also brand new is actually BMW’s Concept M4 GTS. the idea previews a brand new track-focused variant of the M4 which is actually due to go on sale early next year, as well as includes an innovative brand new water injection system for its twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine – which today produces around 460bhp. additional enhancements include OLED tail-lights, a brand new adjustable front splitter as well as rear spoiler, as well as an upgraded chassis.
One of the stars of the show has been Lamborghini’s brand new Aventador Superveloce Roadster. Production is actually limited to just 500 units, with each car costing £350,000 – almost £30,000 more than the Superveloce Coupé, which made its debut in Geneva earlier This particular year. Like the Coupé, the Superveloce Roadster is actually powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine producing 740bhp. Despite weighing 50kg more than the Coupé, the Roadster takes just 2.9 seconds to reach 62mph, as well as carries a top speed of 217mph.
Elsewhere, Hyundai also previewed the look of its upcoming Genesis Coupé with the Vision G Concept. The two-door, four-seat type is actually officially described as being the company’s “inspiration for its family of future premium products”. However, the concept is actually already badged as Genesis inside as well as out as well as features the same 5.0-litre V8 engine which already powers the Genesis saloon from the US.
McLaren’s Special Operations division showcased two bespoke 570S designs at the show. Both cars were used to show off the personalisation options open to McLaren customers. The 650S Le Mans – which was revealed at Goodwood earlier This particular year – was also on display.
