Pebble Beach, California – The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance will celebrate its 60th anniversary this year by focusing on the 75th anniversary of Jaguar. The California show runs August 15, 2010.
The Concours began in tandem with the first Pebble Beach Road Race in 1950.
“The Pebble Beach Concours came about through the efforts of car enthusiasts, and it has always reflected their passions,” said Sandra Button, chairman of the Concours. “Our genuine motorsports heritage gives focus to this event, even today.”
Jaguar will be the featured marque this year, and the show is expected to draw many historic models, including a 1935 SS90 that served as the prototype for the first named Jaguar, early examples of the SS1 and SS100, the first C-Type sent to the U.S. and campaigned by Phil Hill, a LeMans-winning D-type, and the prototype XJ13.
The show will also feature Alfa Romeo and Pierce-Arrow, showcase Italian designer Ghia, and include special classes focusing on the 50th anniversary of the Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, the centennial of the Indianapolis 500, hot rod lakesters and Bonneville racers, and prewar American motorcycles.
