What You Missed At The Quail

Monterey Car Week—the cluster of automotive events that culminates with the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance on Sunday—draws an eclectic group of cars and an equally varied mix of enthusiasts to its events. Though Pebble Beach remains the crown jewel, another event known formally as The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering is a close-second, with stunning examples of essentially every vintage and type of car imaginable present and accounted for.

This years event, held yesterday, saw a ton of supercars and concepts cars, as well as enough fan-favorites for every car nut, from the Batmobile to imported Honda micro-trucks to rare and quirky models from flash-in-the-pan brands now decades gone.

Acura Type S

Sports Car or Luxury Sedan? The car is stunning with a long hood, sloping roof, chiseled design, and gorgeous Double Apex Blue Pearl paint.

Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 63

2019 Quail

Crazy Powerful: Each of the 63 cars will come with tri-tone Alcantara upholstery, carbon-fiber trim and a steering-wheel badge to mark the SVJ 63 Roadster’s significance.

Nobody does special editions better than the Italians. This limited-production Aventador roadster is named after the year the company was founded, and it features dramatic styling and colors not available on the more boring mainstream versions of the Aventador.
