Monterey 2012: Part 2 – Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is considered by many to be the premiere Concours event of the world, and with good reason. There is never any shortage of incredible cars, and more recently motorcycles, at the event. Having been to the last 5 events I have never been disappointed. Anyway, on to the photos.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An early prototype of the famous 300SL Gullwing.

 

 

 

 

One of the more unusual Alfa Romeo’s I’ve ever seen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hispano Suiza “Xenia” by Soutchik. Check out this great video about this car on Jay Leno’s Garage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I finally got to see a Pagani this year. Seeing the Huayra in person totally transformed my opinion on it. The attention to detail on every aspect of this car is simply staggering.

    Love the photos. In particular the picture of the shelby cobra that is looking at the 98 sticker. What kind of camera are you using and in addition, what shutter speed and aperature did you use with that photo?

    thanks,

      Hi Matt, thanks for the kind words! For that shot I was using my D700 and an 85mm F/1.4. The shot was taken at F/1.4 and 1/8000 at ISO 200.
