Enthusiasts from around the world reside in Monterey this weekend to see the best the car world has to offer. First up: the Quail
19 August 2017

Monterey car week is well and truly underway - and it brings together car connoisseurs and enthusiasts from around the world to celebrate all things motoring.

The so-called ‘Quail, a Motorsports Gathering’ occurs at The Quail golf club in California and features a host of old and new cars. Many individual owners compete in the concours while manufacturers use the event as an opportunity to show off their cars to the wealthy.

This year, Jaguar brought its XE SV Project 8, Infiniti showed its Prototype 9 while BMW displayed its 8 Series concept to name a few.

To get a ticket means entering a heavily over-subscribed lottery. If you are lucky enough to win, then you’ll pay $600 for the privilege. 

So, yes, it is exclusive but it’s also a dreamy world of perfect motors, from yesteryear to tomorrow.

We’ve picked some of our favourite vehicles so you can get a glimpse of what was on show. Click on the picture gallery above to see more.
