The Pebble Beach concours d'Elegance is also known for debuting concept cars. Whether it is a North American or world debut, a pre-production or one-off, it is on the concept lawn at Pebble Beach. You don't need a concours ticket to view the concepts and they are spread out enough and each of a high caliber that none get too crowded.
There were 21 concepts listed but there were actually more since manufacturers had some at their display booths separate.
The CC100 is one of the more exotic concepts on the lawn with doors that are half the height of a normal door, leaving an open space from the bottom of door to rocker panel. It has a V12 engine and carbon fiber construction.When asking an Aston Martin representative if the CC100 concept is going into production he replied they are already being made, 10 are on pre-order.
The most exotic however could be said to go to Laraki design's Epitome. Laraki design is a start-up company located in nearby Irvine,CA. The company is hoping to make it at around 1000 hp, on a twin turbo v8 but with a price point of 2 million dollars, it is optimistic to get his goal of 9 sold this year.
The Maserati Ghibli is going with a twin turbo V8 as well giving it a top speed of 176 mph.
The Icona Vulcano made its North American debut being from a car company from Turin, Italy.
With a name like Pininfarina, BMW hopes the collaboration between them will make the Gran Lusso a hit. Wood and black chrome accents are used on this and the interior is driver-oriented with everything pointed towards them.
Jaguar's Project 7 is a one-off. A one-seater, aluminum-bodied car designed to bring back the Le Mans race cars of old.
Galpin auto sports, a company known for customizing, had its first actual ground-up car they can safely name after themselves. The Galpin GTR1 is inspired by the Ford GT and it shows in the front but the rear has smooth lines, distinguishing it from other cars on market.
For the other concept cars, see the slideshow for a photo and title or the Pebble Beach website for a brief bio of each concept on the lawn.
