Editors’ Picks: Our Favorites from the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

The Concours d’Élégance at Pebble Beach once again lived up to its billing as the most over-the-top classic-car spectacle on the automotive calendar. There were 27 automotive categories, as well as one for motorcycles. In addition to the expected—pre- and postwar classics, American and European, open and closed; antiques, open and closed; preservation cars, pre- and postwar; Duesenbergs; Rolls-Royces (two classes); Ferraris (two classes); and a class devoted to custom coachwork (by Chapron)—attendees this year overdosed on Lamborghini Miuras, Bizzarrinis, Ford GTs, custom-bodied Fiats, 1930s Indy cars, Delahayes (two classes), and BMWs (three classes). From this the sea of automotive perfection, the C/D team plucked out a dozen favorites—including one prescient pick.

In his honor and because this 1938 custom-bodied special edition is so impeccably turned out, it’s my top pick at Pebble Beach. —Don Sherman1938 Horch 853 Erdmann and Rossi Special Roadster SS 021938 Delahaye 165 cabriolet1938 Delahaye 165 cabriolet1938 Packard 1605 Super Eight Bohman & Schwartz convertible sedan1938 Packard 1605 Super Eight Bohman & Schwartz convertible sedan1953 Fiat 1100 Allemano cabriolet1953 Fiat 1100 Allemano cabriolet1962 Ferrari 250 GTE police car1962 Ferrari 250 GTE police car1965 Ford GT40 P/1015 Mk II1965 Ford GT40 P/1015 Mk II1966 Bizzarrini P538 Italdesign Manta concept1966 Bizzarrini P538 Italdesign Manta concept1971 Lamborghini Miura SV Bertone Coupe1971 Lamborghini Miura SV Bertone Coupe
