The 65th annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance was held Sunday, August 16, 2015 at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in California. Staged on the scenic 17th and 18th fairways of the Pebble Beach Golf Links beside the Pacific Ocean, the grand finale of the Monterey Classic Car Week saw a bumper entry of 200 collector cars.
In perfect weather conditions, the cars entered for the Concours were viewed by a capacity crowd from the early hours of Sunday through until the presentation of the category awards culminating in the prestigious ‘Best of Show’ award in the late afternoon.
Among the iconic marques and models featured in 2015 were Shelby GT350 Mustangs, celebrating their 50th birthday; Lincoln Continental, now 75 years old; Pre-war British sports models; DuPont; Pope; Designs by Carrozzeria Touring; post-war Cunninghams and Mercury Custom. Ferrari Grand Touring and Competition cars also occupied a place of honor this year, with additional focus on Preservation Ferraris and Ferraris that Raced in the Pebble Beach Road Races in the 1950s.
With the high quality of the entrants, such a large number of rare classics presented a challenge to the many judges. This year, they chose a Isotta Fraschinio Tipo 8A manufactured in Milan in 1924. The owner, Jim Patterson of Louisville, Kentucky, acquired the car at Retromobile, Paris in early 2014. Since then the impressive car was subject to a comprehensive restoratio by the team at RM Auto Restoration, involving every nut and bolt and the result clearly convinced the judges.
