Pebble Beach 2011: Ultimate Photo Gallery

Each year, Classic Car Week on the Monterey Peninsula leads into one of the biggest classic car shows in the world, Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Visitors and cars fly in from around the world, and join the 18th fairway of the Pebble Beach golf course.

Every year thousands of paying visitors gather on the third Sunday of August to enjoy the most impressive Concourse d’Elegance in the world. This year’s Best of Show car was a 1934 Voisin C-25 Aerodyne. Voisin was one of the world’s first airplane manufacturers and some of their innovative work in the aerodynamics field can be seen on the car.

All of their design feature lightweight materials that combine aerodynamic features with Art Deco style. Just over two dozen C-25s were ever built, but not many survived. The roof is powered by intake manifold pressure and slides back along tracks. Inside, for the first time in a car, a folding rear seat was available.

The C-25 Aerodyne is put in motion by a six-cylinder 3.0-liter Knight sleeve-valve engine producing 100 hp.

Along with the “classics”, the Concours also displays a large variety of concepts, production cars and classics, including a wide array of Ferraris, Rolls Royce vehicles and other high-end cars. This year, Pebble Beach hosted the most impression collection of Ferrari GTOs, quite a sight to be seen.
