All 68 Best of Show Winners at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

Do you know your Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance ABCs — your Alfa Romeros, Bentleys and Chryslers?

The select 68 that have been bestowed Best of Show along the sparkling shoreline of Stillwater Cove?

There have been Spiders, Silver Ghosts and a royal lineage of Phantoms — I, II and III.

There have been coupes, sedans and convertibles. Town cars, tourers and limousines. Roadsters, speedsters and torpedos. Berlinettas, cabriolets and phaetons.

The oldest champion is an esteemed 1913 Rolls Royce, a Silver Ghost London to Edinburgh Tourer that won in 1962, a dozen years after the inaugural Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The youngest is a 1964 Maserati Mistral Coupe, which captured the prestigious title just four years after it was built in 1968.

In the race for the most Best of Show honors, nine different Bugattis have won the top prize, while Mercedes-Benz bagged its eighth title in 2017. A Jaguar roadster, the 1952 XK120 Fixed Head Coupe, is the only model to snag Best of Show in two different competitions, completing the double in 1952 and 1954.

Want to win Best of Show? Nearly two-thirds (44 of 68) of the cars in this celebrated club were originally built in the 1930s, including 22 of the last 26 champions.

Here’s a look at every single Best of Show winner:
