Once a year, just before summer turns to fall, an army of well-heeled automotive enthusiasts descends upon California’s central coast. The affluent masses besiege the city of Monterey and its surrounding communities of Pebble Beach and Carmel, flooding the streets with the finest examples of premium automobiles.
They are drawn from all over the world to celebrate the ultimate in motoring supremacy — an orgy of rare metal and money. Stand at any given street corner, and you’ll see more Ferraris and Lamborghinis than Civics and Camrys. This is Monterey Car Week.
