Default The 2016 Pebble Beach Concept Lawn

The Concept Lawn is typically reserved for concept cars, design experiments and generally non-production cars, but this year, the lawn was host to production cars as well.

The Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is like the smallest, most expensive car show you can imagine. A bunch of unobtanium concepts and almost-production models line an irregularly shaped putting green for people to stare at while on their way to see other, older insane cars.

New Ford GT. It's not a concept, but it's not in production yet.

Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo.

Designed for the Gran Turismo 6 Playstation game, the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is suitably extreme.With a Veyron-inspired quad-turbo W16 engine, the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo develops over 1,500 hp.However, Bugatti built just one real-world example. It was recently bought by a Saudi Prince for a ludicrous sum of money along with a matching Chiron

Lamborghini Centenario Roadster

To celebrate the 100th birthday of legend Ferruccio Lamborghini, the Sant’Agata brand created the Lamborghini Centenario. Based on the Lamborghini Aventador, the V12-powered Centenario is one of the most extreme cars in the brand’s very extreme history. However, Lamborghini decided to make it even more extreme by cutting its roof off. The Centenario Roadster is actually prettier than its coupe sibling, which is far too exaggerative to be pretty. But for some reason, cutting the roof off brings out the beauty in it a bit.

The naturally-aspirated V12 screamer mounted in the middle makes 759 hp, through a seven-speed automated manual gearbox to all four wheels. Lamborghini claims it can get from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds. It features four-wheel steering and a seemingly absurd amount aerodynamic scoops.

What is that wraith and that Quattroporte doing there along with all the concepts? That Kia is a stunner by the way!

I wonder how quick the Navigator's gull wing like door opens up? But then, it must be really cool to land in one of those at a red carpet event. The gentleman can slide out of the front seat, and take the hand of the lady in the rear seat in once slick move... chauffeur driven, of-course.

The New GT looks just amazing and the acura too looks very futuristic. while most of them are concepts, I really wonder how much of the looks they will retain when they are production versions

The vision Mercedes Maybach-6 is quite intriguing. Seems like it'll be a reality in the near future going by Mercedes press release.
