Pebble Beach Concours 2015 – Class Winners and Photos

The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance returned to the fairways of the Pebble Beach Golf Links in California on Sunday, August 16, 2015. Ferraris were featured in great numbers this year, along with classic era duPonts, antique Popes, British prewar sports cars and postwar Cunninghams. Special classes celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Shelby GT350 and the 75th anniversary of the Lincoln Continental, and Mercury Customs were displayed for the first time.

In perfect weather conditions, the field of 219 classic cars from 16 countries entered for the Pebble Beach Concours 2015 were viewed by a capacity crowd from the early hours through until the presentation of the category awards culminating in the “Best of Show” in the late afternoon. Staged on the 18th fairway of the famous Pebble Beach Golf Links beside the Pacific Ocean, the event takes the form of a garden party with attendant displays and classical music.

With a very high quality of entrants, the large number of rare and immaculate classics presented a challenge to the many judges. This year, they chose a rare Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A F. Ramseier and Cie Worblaufen Cabriolet manufactured in Milan in 1924. The owner, Jim Patterson of Louisville, Kentucky, acquired the car at Retromobile, Paris in early 2014. Since then the impressive car was subject to a comprehensive restoration program, involving every nut and bolt and the result clearly convinced the judges. Patterson, who has a collection of “several dozen cars”, plans to take the Isotta Fraschini to more Concourse events.

  1. Awesome photos and summary. I hope they start including more modern cars in future editions of this event. Judging by the awards, the Pebble Beach concours seems to be a place where time stopped in 1966.

  2. The Delahaye convertible was the prettiest car in person! Saw all the cars in Carmel and it was the most beautiful car there….

  3. All the events covered in this edition of your online magazine, were photographically covered extremely well, but I especially appreciate photos of the drivers and attendees. Half of an event for me are the people, from the famous drivers to the pretty girls, and even the workers who make the events possible if they are doing photogenic things.
