Every third Sunday in August, the Pebble Beach Lodge opens its meticulously prepared 18th fairway to over 200 of the world's finest classic cars and motorcycles. The annual 'Concours d'Elegance' is the traditional climax of a complete week of shows, races and auctions held on the Monterey Peninsula. In addition to the familiar classes, the 62nd edition featured special classes for the cars of the Maharajas, coachwork by Saoutchik, Mercer, Fiat and the 50th anniversary of the Shelby Cobra. The passing of Sergio Pininfarina was also commemorated with a special appearance of the very first Ferrari bodied by the legendary coachbuilder. This 212 Inter Cabriolet was restored by Pininfarina during the 1980s following direct instructions from the late Sergio Pininfarina. Prominent collector of very early Grand Prix cars, George Wingard received the Lorin Tryon Trophy for his contributions to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
