The pinnacle and final event of Monterey Car Week 2022 held last weekend in Northern California was the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, hosted at the famed 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links. For 71 consecutive years, this event has been both an industry staple and fan favorite, featuring some of the world’s most elegant and rare top-tier cars from all over the world. Just to have a place on the lawn is an honor in itself. The 2022 lineup featured cars from all eras and styles, including some of Le Man’s most legendary race cars. If you’re only able to attend one event during this extraordinary event, Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is the must. Here are just a few of the highlights of an event that never disappoints.
