Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Luxury Vehicle Introductions: Top 5 Picks

Par for the course, Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance was yet again the place to be and be seen for uber-rich auto aficionados. Traditionally featuring some of the nation’s most pristine examples of yesteryear’s finest luxury offerings, Pebble Beach played host to a couple luxury and concept car reveals. We’ve selected our top five picks and think they provide some tasty automotive eye candy.

BMW Zagato Roadster

The result of six weeks of labor, BMW unveiled its latest hand-built car, the Zagato Roadster. Decked out in aluminum body panels, the vehicle boasts unique hindquarters a Z-mesh grille, a two-tone interior and leather-clad roll hoops. The one-off two-seater represents the manufacturer’s collaboration with the design and coach building-firm Zagato.

The roadster showcases BMW’s ability to rapidly develop a vehicle with advanced manufacturing techniques to attract the attention of wealthy customers.

Rolls-Royce Ghost

Previously only available on the Rolls-Royce Phantom, the 2013 Rolls-Royce Ghost gets a perforated leather headliner. The Ghost also features a two-tone paint scheme with Carrara White over Mazarine Blue offset by a Mandarin Orange twin feature line – not to mention the Pebble Beach and Orange Poppy polished tread plates on the door, which is the official flower of California and native to the Monterey peninsula (home to Pebble Beach).

The special edition demonstrates Rolls-Royce’s ability to create a custom-made experience, as the one-off model also features monogrammed headrests and a veneered dash inlay.

McLaren X-1

This one-off model is based on McLaren’s MP4-12C Spider concept and was created for an anonymous car enthusiast who requested this custom-made vehicle. With futuristic styling and luxury accessories such as a Jaeger LeCoultre clock, an Airstream trailer, a Thomas Mann Montblanc pen and a grand piano, the vehicle follows specific demands of the owner.

The futuristic styling includes carbon fiber body panels, unique head and taillights, custom wheels, solid aluminum trim and covered rear wheels.

The 402-horsepower mid-engined, twin electric motor-powered Infiniti Emerg-e is capable of accelerating from 0-60 miles per hour in just 4.0 seconds – and from zero to 130 miles per hour 30 seconds, while operating as a zero-emission urban transport over a 30-mile range.
