2019 Pebble Beach Concours: Tour d’Elegance

© Rod Hatfield, Automotive Content ExperiencePebble Beach Tour
The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is one of the most prestigious automotive events in the world. Every year on a Sunday in August, the 18th fairway in front of The Lodge at Pebble Beach hosts many rare and significant cars from around the world in a judged competition that results in one car being named Best of Show. But on the Thursday prior to the prestigious concours, many of those same vehicles take to the streets surrounding Carmel By the Sea and Pacific Coast Highway during the Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance.

The Pebble Beach Tour begins by parading in front of The Lodge at Pebble Beach before winding through the hills east of Carmel, and then turning south on Highway 1 to Big Sur before returning to Carmel for lunch. But this tour is not simply a parade — the cars travel nearly 70 miles before returning to Pebble Beach.

Upon arrival in Carmel, Tour d’Elegance vehicles line all four lanes of Ocean Avenue, providing a free public display that includes most of the cars that will adorn the lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours on Sunday. Let’s look at some of amazing machines that cruised the tour route this year.
