The 2008 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance featured an incredible array of Alfa Romeos, Duesenbergs, Packards, Ferraris, V16 Cadillacs, GM Concepts, Lancias, 20+ Liter cars, among many other special automobiles.
The thorough process of putting together the finest selection of cars for the Pebble Beach Concours is unrivaled, signifying that the mere acceptance into the event places an automobile among the very best of the best.
Then the judging process occurs, singling out the best in each class, and finally the Best of Show.
While widely known that the 58th Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance judges awarded “Best of Show” to the 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Touring Berlinetta, the individual class winners also deserve their fair share of praise.
Class Winners are selected based on originality, authenticity, and proper and excellent preservation or restoration. Class Awards, representing the spirit of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, are sculptures created from the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Trophy, mounted upon elegant ebony-black bases.
