The Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance is an annual driving event that delights entrants and spectators alike making up one of the many events making up the Concous d”elegance. The tour shows off the vehicles as they were meant to be enjoyed. Those owners willingly hop behind the wheel and fire up their engines for a quick jaunt down 17 Mile Drive and the Pacific Coast Highway.
There is nothing quite like the experience of seeing, hearing and feeling these unbelievable cars as they saunter their way south along Highway 1. Led by Sir Stirling Moss in a Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster, the tour featured a hefty number of original Shelby Cobra models.
The 2012 event marks the 50th anniversary of Carroll Shelby and as such it is one of the featured models of the 2012 concours.
The Tour initiated to showcase the elegance of the automobile in motion, the Tour also underscores the early history of the place that is Pebble Beach.
The Tour is open to all entrants in the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and it is important to note that the Tour and the Concours are directly linked. If two vehicles tie in class competition at the Concours, the vehicle that has successfully completed the Tour gets the nod.
