  • Ah, Monterey Car Week. Gearheads flock to California every summer for the annual gathering surrounding the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, where some of the finest cars in the world are presented. Vehicles on display range from immaculate vintage roadsters to the newest and rarest hyper cars. However, the car McLaren Automotive is most excited to showcase is neither of those. The company will instead show off a one-off 720S in a bold new color scheme, a strange combination considering the all-new 720S is designed to be anything but rare. McLaren released details about its custom 720S days before the car will be given to the owner. Built by McLaren Special Operations, this 720S will go on display at Pebble Beach Concours on August 20th, where McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt will hand the keys to entrepreneur and car collector Michael Fux. And that's not all—they're also handing over the exclusive rights to use that color on any McLaren going forward.This 720S' exterior ..

  • The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept nearly stole the show at last year’s Pebble Beach concours, even surrounded by hundreds of vintage, billionaire-friendly Bugattis, Ferraris, Packards and Isottas. The Cabriolet version unveiled today, a short chip from the third green at Pebble Beach Golf Links, can’t quite top the Cupid’s Arrow of a coupe for sheer, streamlined fabulousness. But this oceangoing convertible, which stretches nearly as far as a Rolls-Royce Phantom, might still move a Saudi prince to let his girlfriend drive.Gleaming in appropriate “Nautical Blue” metallic paint (versus the cherry-red coupe) the nearly 20-foot-long boattail convertible floats on 24-inch rose gold center-lock wheels. Mercedes says the vertical struts of the dramatic radiator grille are inspired by a pinstripe suit—clearly a bespoke one. Compared with last year’s coupe, the convertible better flaunts its interior, even if it’s the kind of high-concept fluff that’s reliably toned down before the car en..

  • Car spotters, rejoice: now is your chance to finally see Christian von Koenigsegg's latest creation in the flesh. The Koenigsegg Regera hybrid hypercar is a great example of Christian's knack for innovation, utilizing a twin-turbocharged V-8 coupled with 3 electric motors and gearless "Koenigsegg Direct Drive" transmission to rocket it to over 250 mph. It's also one of the few cars to make the Bugatti Chiron nervous, although we haven't seen the two 1500-horsepower cars go toe-to-toe yet. The Regera might be impossible to buy right now, but there's still hope for people who want to see the car up close. YouTuber Cali Autos recorded a video of a slew of supercars in Malibu on Thursday, all preparing to head up to Pebble Beach for Monterey Car Week. The Koenigsegg Regera is the star of the show, sitting alongside a squadron of other Koenigseggs including multiple Agera RS' and the CCX/CCXR with the "Ghost" package. The video includes some super-detailed sho..

  • BMW has taken a few knocks lately over whether or not the brand has been faithful to the whole "Ultimate Driving Machine" ethos, and many are eagerly waiting to see if the Bavarian half of the Toyota-BMW sports car collaboration will help balance out all those crossovers. Now, ahead of its planned debut at Pebble Beach later this week, here's a generous sneak peek of the rumored BMW Z4 concept via the company's Facebook page.The high-contrast photo only reveals part of the roadster, but there are a few things we can glean from it regardless. BMW's signature kidney grilles are back and, in a move that's sure to please purists, actually narrower than the previous-generation Z4. The double headlights are also more sharply angled now, giving the car a more aggressive face than its predecessor.That angry stance continues back down the whole body, with wider fender flares and a more upswept beltline. From spy photos, we know the BMW Z4 concept will rock an old-school cl..
