Unlike past years, my time in Monterey for 2012 actually started with a visit to the Quail Motorsports Gathering which was just ending at the time. There was still plenty to see including the Pagani Huayra you see at the top of the post.
The McLaren X-1 garnered a lot of mixed attention on the internet when it was revealed. I happen to think its a pretty cool that McLaren would do something like this but I do prefer the looks of the Mp4-12C you can see below.
It took the better part of 5 minutes to get the Sesto Elemento off the stage. Not a lot of clearance on this track-only Lamborghini.
Lamborghini’s Urus SUV Concept was also on display (and came off the stage much more easily).
A Koenigsegg Agera R being driven by Christian Von Koenigsegg himself.
After The Quail we headed to Carmel to see what we could find around Ocean Ave.
Unfortunately as there have been more and more events at the Monterey Peninsula on that weekend the cars don’t come out to Carmel as much as they once did. There were still some gems though like the above SLR Sterling Moss.
The next day after the races at Laguna Seca we went to Cannery Row where I saw this RWB Porsche. RWB has become quite famous on the internet for the way they modify older Porsches. I’m personally a fan.
The interior of a Jaguar XJ which I personally think has one of the best interiors of any car out there today.
After Cannery Row we went to downtown Monterey where they have a few auctions going on.
The one-of-a-kind Plymouth XNR was being auctioned off at the RM Auction.
That about does it for my Monterey coverage, I hope you enjoyed it!
