Aside from the fantastic Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance the Auctions (which will be covered later) and the spectacular closing with the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the motoring weekend is also known for its concepts and its launches.
I was lucky enough to take part in two of the launches and got to see the world premier of the Lexus GS 350 and the Infiniti JX Crossover. These two vehicles will be released next year into the luxury auto market. Attending the premier was a real eye opening event and getting to meet the people behind the vehicles was also a very enjoyable experience. In the gallery below you can see a couple of shots from both of the events.

The all-new Infiniti JX is the 7-passenger antidote to the ho-hum luxury crossovers that are out there right now,” added Ben Poore, vice president of Infiniti Americas. “The Infiniti JX will have a stunning interior, while offering exceptional seating flexibility, easy access to the roomy third row, plus the latest in-vehicle technology – including next-generation telematics. A fitting addition to our line, it will challenge the status quo in its class.”
