The Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance 2015 was staged Thursday, August 13th, starting and ending at the Pebble Beach Equestrian Center in Pebble Beach, California. This year’s Tour was blessed by the best Californian weather in recent years, with nearly 200 cars with a value collectively running into the many hundreds of millions of dollars, running the non-competitive tour of 80 miles, to the mass approval of strong crowds.
Appreciative enthusiasts of all ages dominated not only at the 8:00am start, but also at the finish in Pebble Beach following a lunch stop on Ocean Avenue at Carmel-by-the-Sea. The idea of a parade on the highway linked to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance was launched in 1998. It resulted in the first Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance, a tribute to vintage cars in motion. The Tour, which traditionally takes place on the Thursday before the Pebble Beach Concours, is open to all participants in the Concours.
The 2015 Pebble Beach Tour was not just a golden opportunity for locals and enthusiasts from around the world to savor the beauty and elegance of some of the greatest classics of all time, but participating may also be crucial for those hoping to succeed in the finale of the week, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. In the event that two cars tie in the Concours, the car that successfully participated in the Tour will take the prize. Among the essential, unmissable and iconic models were Mustang Shelby GT350s, celebrating their 50th birthday; Lincoln Continental, now 75 years old; Ferrari Grand Touring and Competition cars; DuPont; Pope; designs by Carrozzeria Touring; post-war Cunninghams and Mercury Custom. Pre-war British sports models also occupied a place of honor this year.
