So, the brief but exciting 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is in the books and we can officially announce the winner of its most coveted award: "Best of Show." This award is just what it sounds like; out of all of the possible classes in the entire Concours, this model was the most amazing of them all. Sure, winning any of the various class awards is great, but a "Best of Show" award is one that an owner can brag about for an entire lifetime.

This year’s winner is a 1934 Packard 1108 Twelve Dietrich Convertible Victoria, and we swear that it did not win on name length alone — though that may have been a part of the judging process... This monster of a drop top, which is better known as simply the Packard Twelve, comes courtesy of Joseph and Margie Cassini III from West Orange, New Jersey.

This classic Packard took home the prize, despite plenty of top-line competition from the other nominees, which included a 1932 Lincoln KB Murphy Roadster; a 1934 Hispano-Suiza J12 Vanvooren Coupé; and a 1914 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Van den Plas Belgium Torpedo
