The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance 2010 paid tribute to all that is Alfa Romeo, celebrating the centennial of the Italian auto manufacturer founded as Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili. The Pebble Beach Concours gathering along Carmel Bay showcased vehicles ranging from a 1910 A.L.F.A. 24 HP to the just-unveiled Alfa Romeo Pandion show car created by Bertone to mark the centennial, and it also included a display of rarely seen cars from the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo (the Alfa Romeo Museum) in Arese, Italy.
“Alfa Romeos have gained prominence in recent years and are treasured by enthusiasts and loved as true driving machines,” said Sandra Button, chairman of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. “We’re pleased to have assembled such a significant group of Alfas for this year’s Concours, amazing vehicles crafted by gifted engineers and designers that have helped shape 20th century automotive technology and racing history.”
