2019 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance: the winners

19th Aug 2019 7:24 pm

The 1931 Bentley 8 Litre Gurney Nutting Sports Tourer won the Best of Show award at the 2019 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, beating nominees from Mercedes-Benz, Aston Martin and Talbot-Lago.


The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is one of the biggest and most important events on the calendar for vintage and classic-car enthusiasts. Like every year, this iconic event was held at the 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links.

The fairway was filled with some of the most exotic, rare and sought-after classic and vintage cars from marques like Bentley, Rolls Royce, Duesenberg, Alfa Romeo, Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari and Lamborghini to name a few. However, this didn’t mean there weren’t any modern cars on display as Bugatti showcased its limited-run, 1,600hp, Centodieci hypercar which takes inspiration from the EB110. Also in attendance were the Aston Martin Valhalla, the Bentley EXP 100 GT Concept and Lotus Evija.

This year, there were four cars nominated for the 2019 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Best of Show award. It was rather fitting that the winner was the 1931 Bentley 8 Litre Gurney Nutting Sports Tourer, as this year marks Bentley’s 100-year anniversary. This immaculately kept Bentley is owned by Michael Kadoorie, a businessman based out of Hong Kong.
